We present the new Bleu de Paname Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. The French brand, in the meantime known for their artisanal production techniques and heritage look, sticks to the colors and style that we are used to see from them. We especially like the blue cotton pants and shirts from the collection, perfect to roll up and a nice relaxed fit. Of course the line as usual also sports lots of denim pieces in different washes.

“In 1902, two journalists in Paris, Arthur Dupin and Victor Morris, starts calling “les Apaches” the petty criminals and thugs of the Rue de Lappe and pimps of Belleville, which differ from the underworld and criminals by their style appearances. Originating from the upper districts of eastern Paris,as Ménilmuche (Ménilmontant) or Belleville, they invest at night the Bastille district or Mouff (Mouffetard’s street). The Apaches travel in groups, with accoutrements that enable them stand out: semi-open jacket over a rumpled shirt, pants tall concealing a 22’s blade, scarf and cap screwed over a shaved neck.”
