The cool quickdraw of Drôle de Monsieur
Since 2014, Funny de Monsieur 's goal has been to dress boys (as its name suggests) in its instantly recognizable preppy fashion with the cult slogan “ Not from Paris Madame ”... But that was without counting on the clever little ones who have come little by little to appropriate their chic and urban swag, inspired by the golf locker room as well as the stars of hip-hop in the 90's version. Present at Printemps and La Samaritaine , the brand created by two friends from Dijon ( Dany Dos Santos and Maxime Schwab ) inaugurated its first pop-up this year in the Marais, the nerve center of Parisian cool, in a devilishly chic decor à la Mad Men.
Among the sharp pieces, we note: a topstitched leather satchel (€395), a jacquard knit jacket (€450), an ultra-stylish velvet bucket hat (€115), a golf player-style polo shirt (€175), cigarette pants ( €220) and a really Parisian t-shirt (€95).
