You can’t get more French than that! While in Paris this summer I made it a goal to buy as much vintage as I could. I don’t know what it was but to me French and vintage go hand-in-hand. It could be because everyone wants a vintage Kelley or Burkin, a vintage Chanel bag, or anything vintage to mimic the bobo (bourgeois bohemian) french bloggers.
Anyway, I did end up with some vintage gems although none from the world-renowned Didier Ludot. But that wouldn’t stop me from at least checking out arguably the most famous vintage store in the world, and possibly the most expensive. You can’t buy anything for under 1000 euros, at least!
But the Didier Ludot/ Petit Bateau collaboration changes everything! Ludot has designed two black dresses for the french label Petit Bateau (both shown below). The one with the collar, The Catherine, is inspired by Catherine Deneuve and the other one, with the two hip pockets was influenced by Twiggy.
Available online Dec. 5th.
