Tom Greyhound

Tom Greyhound

5 out of 5 stars

After an impressive debut in Seoul, the company Handsome exported its fashion concept store Tom Greyhound to Paris in 2014. For its first international address, the multi-brand boutique is found in the Marais, on rue Saintonge.  Installed in a former art gallery of 300m2, the space has an artistic vibe in its DNA, with "a way of upgrading clothes, to show them via art", they explain to us. There's both a chilled and intimate setting to complement the luxury of the creations. Pretty armchairs and sofas are there to offer a pause whilst you browse.  Tom Greyhound offers a large range of pieces: more casual items which are more or less affordable (still, a t-shirt will set you back at least €120!) as well as out-and-out couture. As for brands, the most cool and luxurious are favoured such as Acne, Marni, Alexander Wang, J.W. Anderson, as well as more recent names like Roksanda or Christopher Kane. Unsurprisingly Tom Greyhound is also a trove for emerging Korean fashion brands including Decke, Time or System which can't be found elsewhere in France. Basically, if you want what's new and cool - you know where to go now. 

Sneakers & Chill

Sneakers & Chill

Like all the best ideas and business plans, Sneakers & Chill was born from the aftermath of a party. Three young Parisians – Romain, Nathan and Jean - awoke with few memories but the state of their trainers told them enough. After "dragging your Nikes through a hedge backwards" one of the founders asked, "who can mend shoes in this state?" Without thinking twice, the three entrepreneurs decided to answer their own question by opening up France’s first trainer cleaning, repair and customisation boutique on Rue d'Aboukir. The idea had already been launched in America, but so far nothing existed like it in France. "There was no model, everything had to be started from scratch", says Nathan, the head worksman who first learned his craft in shoes. The move from luxury leather Italian moccasins to trainers was but a step. Giving new life to our old trainers After a private opening in September 2016, Sneakers & Chill officially launched in style with a party last December. The boutique quickly attracted an eclectic crowd, and not only puritanical sneakers’ fans. From trendy Parisians coming to whiten their Stan Smiths, to runnners taking care of their Nike Zoom Flys, or a young model who brings in his pair of Yeezy trainers to style them to his taste, every day in Sneakers & CHill is a veritable catwalk. This storming success goes to show the transversality of the trainer for all walks of life. "It’s simple, the trainer is becoming a tyrant", says Nathan.  Cleaning, repairing, custo

L'HabibliothĂšque

L'HabibliothĂšque

L'HabibliothĂšque began in 2014, when three fashion-mad sisters AurĂ©lie, Anahi and AlizĂ©, had the idea of launching the first official clothes library. The library's new digs are in the heart of the Marais, an enormous and light appartment on rue Beaubourg.  This high-end rentalable wardrobe, offers clients fashion in an immediate, unlimited and ephemeral way. Filled with the latest trends, the boutique only stocks pieces from the most recent collections. Carven, Manoush, Vanessa Bruno, Alexander Wang and more can be yours.  For a monthly subscription of €149 you can borrow one, two or three pieces – all of which you can change for new ones –, for up to 6 months. There's also a drycleaning service to remove any eventual little marks, included in the price. Watch out for occasional private sales, where your heart's desire can become a permanent part of your wardrobe. 

Hank Pizza

Hank Pizza

4 out of 5 stars

They promised they would and at last, Hank Restaurant have opened their 100% vegan pizza joint. Their vegan burgers were convincing (despite the slightly disappointing cheese, also known as 'fauxmage') and the pizzas were just as credible. The red frontage is an enticing invitation into this vegan voyage – and far more spacious than the nearby Hank Burger. The cosy dĂ©cor is spread over two floors – think seventies-style duck egg blue couches, trendy lights and tiled laminate flooring. To takeaway seems a real shame.   Prices are wallet-friendly too. €13 gets you two slices of pizza, a drink and a dessert (or a salad). À la carte, slices are €5 so make sure to sample several of the mouth-watering pizzas on display. If you, like us, thought a decent pizza is nothing without good cheese, think again. Hank’s sauces and creamy toppings do the job marvellously. For the less adventurous, the sublime tomato pizza (tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, smoked salt, vegan ricotta, basil and pine nuts) is the perfect introduction to vegan cuisine. More daring diners should order the intensely flavourful truffle pizza (potatoes, rocket, truffle cream, mushrooms and nuts). Our only complaint? Slices were served disappointingly lukewarm. The desserts, however, were the dream finale to this vegan feast; 100% organic sorbet, gooey cookies and chocolate mousse that tasted like actual chocolate. TRANSLATION: MEGAN CARNEGIE
