Paris Street Fashion Stuff #3

by Benjamin Kanarek

On a gloriously balmy Sunday afternoon, as I was passing through the Place des Abbesses, I spotted a very cute couple, looked back at them, thought, “Nah, they have already passed, later…” I then spun around a called out “Excuse Me!” They turned and I felt rather embarrassed stating that I had a blog and recently commenced the “Paris Street Fashion Stuff” section and would they be willing to pose for me. They very graciously accepted after I showed them my blog on my iPhone.



I asked if they could send me the brands of the clothing they were wearing. They said they would send the brands via e-mail to me. I know he was wearing a ZARA Tee Shirt and Dim underwear, as the label was obviously above his Jean line. I will post the brand credits once they send them to me as an update. Just got an e-mail from Alizée and wanted to post it as it was received. She is French and she wrote the e-mail in English. Very charming…
