Modern French Workwear

Some nice pieces inspired by French workwear at Bleu de Paname.

Found though Kapok - "Paname is a nostalgic French slang for the city of Paris. "Bleu de Paname"  is a very new brand initiated in 2008 and offering a modern interpretation of French workwear classics."

Ever since watching Patricia Norris's costume designs in 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford', I have been obsessed with shades of white, both on film and in fabric. I look at old linens even more than I did, which was a lot. The cleanliness of her Western designs was refreshing, elegant and calm. I realise I have been thinking about these shades of pale for three years now, inspired by this design.
