Here are some images of places and spaces that inspire. In the first row, we have the Manoush store on the left and a photography bookstore called "La Chambre Claire" in the middle and on the right. We have carried pieces from Manoush here at blaec and I loved the bold red and white window display. La Chambre Claire is an incredible little shop that has everything from fashion photography, documentary and fine art photography, to the most cutting edge contemporary photography publications and small books I have ever seen. Very inspiring and a great resource for the latest in artful fashion photography and a ton of other golden goodies.
The bottom trio of photos: A glimpse of Colette (Europe's biggest trend setting boutique), and the storefront of American Retro, another Parisian line we have carried here at blaec. Colette carries everything from clothing to collectibles. They have a wall of music, make-up, designer knick knacks, and a basement devoted to hydration. Yep, a water bar. Upstairs they have the men's and women's apparell as well as a sunken bookstore with hipster art books and zines. Lots to look at, and lots of being looked at, all at the same time. Paris style.
