Bleu de Paname at Docks en Seine
Chic Paris workwear brand Bleu de Paname has a pop-up store, till September, in new fashion and design centre Docks en Seine. The brand hit the glossies via collabs with Comme des Garçons that mix the functional with the aesthetic. Their thing is to revisit the work uniform with a contemporary twist, all designed & made in France. At this, their only own-name store, you’ll find their current collection for men and women, plus a selection of unworn vintage “bleu de travail” under the army tent. The other fashion store at Docks en Seine PGL by Pigalle is still under renovation, but there’s a couple of design stores open, including Silvera Outdoor, and for a coffee pitstop, the cute organic Café Praliné is set to open Sun 13 May. And of course the Musée Galliera curated Balenciaga and Comme des Garçons shows continue through to October.
