On our recent trip to Paris we found further appreciation for the Parisian-based concept store FrenchTrotters and their new collection “crafted in Paris.”
The French have a strong affiliation to denim. The word “denim” was born from the city of Nîmes in France where the sturdy workwear fabric was originally made. But while jeanswear has made its way across continents all over the world, many French brands still keep the blue blood running through their veins.
One Parisian label that we noticed on our recent trip to Paris for Denim by PV is FrenchTrotters, who recently expanded their domestically produced denim collection “crafted in Paris.” Originally launched back in 201o, the denim line was created from their inspiration and love of travel. The line is manufactured entirely within city lines from high quality Japanese fabric that create the premium and polished finish French denim labels are recognized for. The brand have recently released a wonderful short video to show what goes on backstage at the parisian manufacturing studio.
The line offers the “Parisienne” slim cut woman’s style in 3 washes and the “Parisien” mens straight cut jeans also available in 3 washes. These denim basics start at €140 and are available to buy straight from their website or from their store on Rue de Charonne in the heart of Paris.
