Clement is a Brittany born but Paris based fashion blogger with a penchant for traditional work-wear. Clement researches the brands he wears in a great deal of depth so that he can really understand the heritage behind the garments.
With a hefty social following and a keen eye for exceptional layering we think that Clement has big things ahead of him and we were excited to collaborate with him on an interview and outfit post.
How long have you lived in Paris?
I have been in Paris for more than 3 years after leaving my native region by the sea: Brittany in the west of France.
How do you feel about the French approach to styling / dressing?
I do not think French brands are very creative in the last few seasons, in my opinion. We see the same styles, the French often put on basics and work-wear is a niche market, unlike other countries. I prefer to approach the Japanese in general.
You use alot of layering in your outfits, do you have any tips / guidelines on how to layer well?
Yes I like to be able to mix the inspirations, materials, colors to create something more accomplished. There are no rules, it is only necessary that the rendering is cool and consistent with the whole of the outfit. I love to wear things over denim jacket because it is a piece to "upgrade".
Tell us about how you first become interested in traditional work-wear cuts and styles?
My grandfather was a farmer and I inherited some of his clothes whose hunting jacket is the trigger I think;) I really like to return to the roots of garments, What they convey in the past, ... it is primarily a state of mind, a return to true values.
How do you choose what to wear in the mornings?
There are days when I am more inspired than others ... it all depends on my mood and the weather. I have some "emergency" outfits in case I do not know what to wear.
