After jewelry, here is the footwear.
(from my hometown!)
So it’s that time of the year when GQ announces who the 2012 best menswear designers in the USA are. The lucky winners will create a limited edition collection for the Gap, which is a great thing for the apparel retailer but also for the designers who will benefit from a lot more coverage. Indeed, the oldest brand was founded in 2008 and the youngest, in 2011.
Even if I’m a female, I’ve always been interested in menswear (except this). Let’s take a look at great pieces from each of their collection.
Chick Magnet (!!!) Loafers
As you can see above, Tranoï is a tradeshow which takes palce four times a year during Paris Fashion Week, for men and women clothes and accessories.
Here is a selection of brands I find interesting. Tell me what you think!
Elise Kim, The Netherlands
Avelon, The Netherlands
Werkstatt Muenchen, Germany
National Standard, France
Brooklyn We Go Hard, France
Today, I made the first post of a (long, I hope) series of “Made in…” posts.
I started with the United States because that’s where I live, and I was inspired by the products I found, while wandering endlessly on the internet.
The following brands and products are exclusively French and French-made, and middle to high-end range.
When I was in Paris, I went to several Pop up stores such as Hôtel Bohème, Le Salon des jeunes créateurs… , where I discovered fresh brands with great products trying to get their names out there.
I bought quite a few things, especially when you know that at pop up stores, prices are discounted (at least, where I went).
Here is my selection and a quick summary of the brand. Tell me what you think!

I think we all have materialistic fantasies (no, you’re not above the masses).
As far as I’m concerned, shoes are a great part of them.
Check this selection out and tell me what your fantasy shoe closet looks like.

Finsk (because I really want to know what it feels like in them!)
