Weekday Wanderlust | City Guide: The Best Vintage Denim Stores in Paris


City Guide | The Best Vintage Denim Stores in Paris

“I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity -- all I hope for in my clothes” said Yves Saint Laurent once.

Indeed, they are the most practical and nonchalant, easy to style piece of clothing, the piece that’s in the top trends every season, the timeless piece that here, in the city of lights and love, you will find worn in so many different ways. For as you may have heard so many times, la parisienne has the savoir-faire, a certain savoir of styling that transcend the trends.

And speaking of timeless styles, VINTAGE DENIM will always be a favorite when comes to choosing pieces for styling.

Oui, there will always be investment buys, but there is also the art of finding the best cut-price items. And this is true of denim. There is something so elegant and refined about vintage “worn in” denim.

Finding the perfect pair may take some time and lots of patience, but here are some tips that might help:
- Try on as many pairs as possible
- Find pairs that are the right length, for adjusting vintage denim can ruin the pair and fit wrong

For the next season to come, denim will be an essential in your wardrobe, so I will be sharing here my top vintage denim shops with a rather hefty stock of rare, high-quality pieces.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
