Discovery: John Woodbridge – Paris

Hello,

Today I wanted to share a small shop in Paris that I discovered last month. My cousin spotted it right away and as soon as I got in I was completely in love with the store.

It’s called John Woodbridge and sells amazing vintage looking travel and sport items.

This company which is quite recent (2013) aims to spread the love of vintage objects that are full of history.

Over there, you’ll find amazing leather pieces for travelling or old looking baseball balls among any others.

Here are some pics from their website.

The whole atmosphere of the store is gorgeous, it has this kind of man cave vibes to it that I find super charming.

If you are ever in the lovely area of St Paul in Paris, I highly recommend you check it out.

PS: And if you are really into vintage sports like this, check out their tumblr page which will be an absolute delight for you! Well done!

Cheers,

P&F

L’Art du Basic – PARIS

Priorité au français car aujourd’hui on parle NATIONAL, les enfants.
Si vous me suivez sur Instagram, vous avez déjà dû apercevoir ma petite vidéo de balade jazzy dans Paris. Ce weekend dans un élan de spontanéité j’ai pris mon petit sac et mon appareil photo et j’ai fais un petit tour de quartier à la découverte de nouveaux magasins, concepts, cafés, décorations et j’en passe.

Surprise du jour bonjour, je tombe sur l’Art du Basic, que je ne connaissais pas et LA – sous le charme. Total.

Je pense qu’il est inutile de revenir sur ma folie du minimalisme, le voyage à Copenhague qui a changé ma vie…On le sait tous maintenant. En tout cas, j’ai bien évidemment flashé sur ce magasin pour son look très clean, ses coupes nettes sans être trop classiques, des excellents tissus, et ce je ne sais pas quoi qui rend toute la collection mystérieuse avec une touche tomboy (tout moi donc 😉 ). Vraiment vraiment sympa! Bravo pour cette collection!

French brand featured on the blog today.
If you follow me on instagram, you may have seen a short video that I filmed while wandering around Paris last Sunday. I had an amazing – very spontaneous day, where I grabbed my bag and camera and started walking around and taking some snaps here and there, discovering new stores, concepts, coffee shops, decoration and so on.

One of my biggest surprise was stubling upon l’Art du Basic, that I did not know before and OH MAN – that was a lovely discovery.

I really think it’s useless to go back to my love for a good minimal look or to how much my trip to Copenhagen changed my life (well, almost!). In any case I absolutely loved that brand. It has wonderful clean cuts without beeing too classic, fine fabric, and that little something that adds some mystery to the collection with a hint of tomboy vibe (100% me 😉 ). Very very nice concept. Congratulations!

Hoje decidi falar-vos de uma marca francesa.
Se já me seguem no instagram, devem ter visto o pequeno vídeo que publiquei este Domingo em que estava a passear pelas ruas de Paris. Passei um dia muito giro e espontâneo, foi só pegar na carteira e na maquina e tirar fotos a todas as coisinhas giras que via como novas lojas, conceitos, cafés, decorações natalícias entre outros.

Uma das coisas que se destacou nessa tarde foi a descoberta da loja L’art du Basic que não conhecia de maneira alguma.

Penso que não é preciso voltarmos a falar da minha Paixão pelo estio minimalista e a que ponto a minha viajem a Copenhaga mudou a minha vida (ou quase!). Em todo o caso, adorei esta marca. Tem uns cortes que são de outro mundo, super simples sem serem demasiado clássicos, tecido espectacular, e um toque de algo especial que torna a colecção toda bastante misteriosa e um pouco tomboy (ou seja, 100% eu, certo? 😉 ). Um excelente trabalho. Parabéns!

 My personal faves:

I’m a huge lover of these deep V necks. So glamourous.  The off white dress has kind of the same vibe going, but in a more sutle way, easier for the daily basis and to brighten up the rainy days #whiteinwinter

robes

Regarding these last two, what can I say beside that I love how tomboyish these styles look. However the cuts keep the feminine aspect very present which make everything very lovely.

tomboy swag

 

I never use the word swag. But look at that last pause. That is minimal/tomboy swag! Love it.

Olá a todos! Espero que tenham passado uma excelente noite de Halloween e que estão todos preparados para o mês de Novembro!

Monikh’s Little Treasures

MONIKH

EN

I discovered Monikh through Estée from Essie Button (love love love her). Monikh is a personnal shopper at Top Shop and has amazing style that she features in her fashion blog. Her blog is very nice but what I personally prefer is her instagram account where she shows little moments of her everyday life (and of course some outfits) but also wonderful quotes that all have the same typo and give so much harmony to her page. I wanted to share some of them that are particularly inspiring to me. I might print and frame them! Hope you like them. 🙂

FR

J’ai découvert Monikh à traver le blog d’Estée, Essie Button (que j’a-dore!). Monikh est une personnal shopper pour Top Shop qui a un incroyable style qu’elle partage dans son blog mode. Ce dernier est vraiment sympa mais j’ai personnellement un petit penchant pour son compte instagram où on peut apercevoir des petits bouts de sa vie de tous les jours avec évidemment ses tenues mais aussi de fabuleuses citations à la typo constante qui donnent une forte harmonie à sa page. Je voulais partager avec vous mes citations préférées que je vais surement imprimer et encadrer dans ma chambre! J’espère que vous les aimerez autant que moi. 🙂

PT

Descobri a Monikh através do blog da EstéeEssie Button (que adoro adoro!). Monikh é uma personnal shopper para a loja Top Shop com um estilo incrível que partilha no seu blog de moda. Gosto muito do blog mas tenho uma certa preferência pela sua pagina do instagram onde partilha o sei dia a dia o que inclui nomeadamente os seus outfits mas também muitas citações que ela partilha sempre com a mesma tipografia o que da muita harmonia a sua pagina. Decidi partilhar aquelas que mais me têm inspirado ultimamente e que estou muito seriamente a pensar imprimir e colocar em molduras para o meu quarto! Espero que gostem tanto como eu. 🙂

What does 200 stand for?

EN

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is officially the 200th post I am publishing on P&F! I can’t believe it – I did not notice I had written so much on the blog!

And this number means another special thing for me as I’ve reached 200 likes on Facebook the other day! It is not a lot but it is still another benchmark that I just passed and I am so happy to see P&F developping and getting more and more readers each day.

I sincerely hope everyone is still enjoying very much my content and once again do not hesitate in giving suggestions about what you would like to see next.

Mesdames, Messieurs,

Ceci est officiellement mon 200ème article publié sur P&F! Je n’arrive pas à le croire – je ne me suis absolument pas rendue compte que j’avais tant écrit sur le blog!

Mais ce chiffre représente quelque chose d’autre de très spécial à mes yeux, le fait d’avoir passé la barre des 200 “j’aime” sur Facebook! Cela peut paraître peu, mais c’est tout de même une étape de franchie et je suis vraiment très heureuse de voir que P&F se développe et que le blog connaît tous les jours de nouveaux lecteurs.

J’espère sincèrement que le contenu continue de vous plaire (en particulier j’espère que vous appréciez cette petite nouveauté: les articles en 3 langues!) mais n’hésitez pas à me donner des suggestions sur le type d’article que vous aimeriez me voir publier davantage.

Senhores e Senhoras,

Este é oficialmente o meu 200° artigo publicado no P&F! Não consigo acreditar – não me apercebi minimamente que já tinha escrito tantos artigos para o blog!

Mas este número representa algo mais para mim, o facto de ter passado o limite dos 200 “gostos” no Facebook! Pode parecer pouco, mas sempre é um etapa passada e fico mesmo feliz por ver que o P&F continua a desenvolver-se e que todos os dias se juntam mais leitores para seguir o blog.

Espero sinceramente que o conteúdo continue de agradar a todos e mais uma vez, não hesitem em deixar sugestões relativamente ao tipo de artigos que gostariam de ver mais.
