Bleu De Paname honours centuries of French Workwear in SS20 collection
For their first collection at Above the Clouds, Parisian brand Bleu De Paname presents thoughtfully constructed garments that marry quintessential menswear silhouettes with military functionality and assembly. Their Spring Summer 20 collection boasts construction in France and Europe and features their signature French-style work jackets and trousers.
Bleu de Paname has a certain je ne sais quoi that celebrates utilitarianism in a uniquely Parisian street-style way. And it is their iconic ‘Comptoir’ (counter) jacket that embodies this distinctive style hermeneutic and remains the highlight of every season.
Translated from ‘bleu de travail’ to ‘blue work’, the French style workers jacket has historically rich roots and was first worn by railways workers and labourers in France in the late 1800s.
Bleu De Paname’s Comptoir jackets are proudly created in Paris for their past four seasons and are crafted with their iconic heavyweight Moleskin fabric that leaves a suede-like finish. It is loose in fit, yet short in the body for comfort and durability while four front pockets leave room for everyday tools like a wallet and keys. Most of all, the Comptoir jacket has an ability to transcend utilitarian design and evolve into a classic and timeless menswear staple that can be worn in both the streetwear and tailoring world.
Therefore it is no surprise that Bleu de Paname puts their spin on the essential workwear jacket when honouring their name that translates to ‘the blue of Paris’; an ode to French specific workwear styles.
Since their origin in 2009 by founders Christophe Lepine and Thomas Giorgetti, Bleu De De Paname has made its way to the forefront of the European fashion industry and continues to break boundaries when fusing streetwear, traditional, military and civilian clothing.
