Très Français

by Lee Oliveira on August 13, 2010

A few of you might be thinking right now, why do I have a french theme for this post. Well, the story goes like this. I caught this young gentleman about to walk into the train station. I had to stop him right away because his look was absolutely impeccable.

I asked him if he was french and he said no. I was saying to myself.. “OH Lee, just shut up if you not sure”. But… then he said, that was very strange of you to ask me that.

He continued to then tell me that he is going to live in Paris very shortly for 1 year to complete his studies in graphic design. And then I thought to myself, “Il regarde très français” For all of you that speak french worse than I do, that means “He looks very french“.

Dané mentioned to me that he is very inspired by french people and their culture. He’s got the look, check out the umbrella as well. He loves everything about them and he is looking forward to spending christmas and new years eve in Paris. Now, that is a dream. He even started saying a few words in french to me. I understood a few words but replying back to him was absolutely out of the question.

I think I gravitate towards men with bags. I seem to be taking a lot of photos of them. Remember Patrick with the Yves Saint Laurent Y-Mail patent black bag from a previous post? I don’t think I am obsessed with bags. Am I?

Dané “Votre regard était absolument parfait”.

Merci beaucoup

He sported a very elegant look and fashionable men are very rare in this world. You are the luckiest when you found this man. He is an epitome of a French guy – classy without even trying.
