Between the slew of weddings, corporate evenings, hot dates and birthdays, stylish Parisians have many occasions to stand out from the crowd with a distinctive detail. And what could be more stylish that special accessoires to give an added touch to your favourite suit?
Such is the principle of Flageolet, the masculine label that “blows an impetuous wind on fashion” (a cute joke on the lima bean...). At the origin: Jérôme and Sylvain, two daring buddies, very trendy “made in France” and tired of the combo suit/tie imposed in their consulting firm. In addition to the eshop, here you will find great ideas to give your basics a cool touch in this boutique on the hip Rue Notre-Dame de Nazareth.
Their signature ? The reversible bow tie, made in Paris : with a liberty motif, pink flamingos, pineapples or then plain with a different colour on the other side, the hardest part is choosing (€39 ). Another option for a wedding: have them personalized to match up with your witnesses. You have two left hands ? Each one is delivered with a small DIY book to learn how to tie it all by yourself like a real dandy.
But also: very Deauville compatible herringbone socks (20 €), Made in Italy reversible belts in suede or wool (€55), small neckerchieves (on sale at €29 ), scarves and bonnets, or cuffs with motifs.
The plus: the very chic colourful box, terrific for a gift.
We like: departing with a cookie, courtesy of La Fabrique Cookies, or an organic pastry from Le Petit parisien bakery right around the corner, on rue Volta.
Open Tuesday to Friday from noon-8pm, on Saturday from 10:30am-7pm.
