Masculine Vibes

Vintage trousers (similar here) / Vintage coat (similar here) / H&M striped jumper / Adidas Stan Smith trainers / Mac So Chaud lipstick
Location: backstreets of Montmartre, Paris

For ages I have been looking for a oversized yet flattering pair of tailored masculine trousers and I have finally found them! I love the dark grey colour, which makes them really easy to wear and they're so comfortable! I paired them with a relaxed yet very Parisian striped cropped jumper and my go to mint green coat to give the outfit a bit of colour. My Stan Smiths are perfect for a casual winter stroll around the backstreet of Montmartre and the Sacre Cœur where these photos were shot. 

Hope everyone is not struggling too much with the cold! I definitely need to invest in some new coats and boots…oh dear (!)…watch this space.

Daphne Dasque Paris

72 rue Vieille du Temple, 75003 Paris

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Amandine, PR director at Parisian jewellery brand Daphne Dasque, to invite me to a party to celebrate five years of the brand! I already knew a bit about the brand so I was very excited to attend and find out more about the collections.

The brand was created by childhood friends Daphne Dasque and Mickaëlle Chabat in 2009 with the opening of their exclusive boutique in Paris' chicest area, Le Marais. Earlier this year, they launched a stand at pioneer vintage and high street store Kiliwatch and this is where I first discovered Daphne's designs.

Daphne Dasque creates rock and roll inspired unisex jewellery, using a mix of mystical and urban symbols such as feathers, snakes and birds. Each piece is carefully handcrafted using silver, oxidised silver and gold plating with beautiful results. Throughout her collections, which include jewellery inspired by Native American culture and journeys through magical landscapes, customers can create their own style by mixing and matching pieces, such as these beautifully simple necklaces with rings. 

This style of jewellery is right up my street - delicate yet tough, perfect. I love how Daphne combines fine metals with contrasting leather for bangles and bracelets. Furthermore, I am obsessed with feathers so the Spirit Lake collection is definitely my favourite and I am pining after the gold-plated feather necklace. 

I was luckily enough to receive this classic silver bangle - a great way to start my personal Daphne Dasque collection! So, if you are ever in Paris you should check out the Daphne Dasque boutique - you will not be disappointed! 

Il y a deux semaines, l’adorable Amandine, Responsable de Presse chez Daphne Dasque (marque de bijoux parisien) m’a contacté pour m’inviter à célébrer cinq ans de la marque ! Je connais déjà la marque un peu alors j’avais hâte d’aller à la soirée et de connaître mieux les collections.

La marque était créée par deux amies d’enfance Daphne Dasque et Mickaëlle Chabat et en 2009 elles ont ouvert la première boutique exclusive dans Le Marais, le quartier le plus chic de Paris. Puis, plus tôt cette année, elles ont lancé un stand chez Kiliwatch, magasin pionner des vêtements vintages et neufs, et c’était là-bas que j’ai découvert les designs de Daphne.

Daphne Dasque crée des bijoux rocks et unisexes en utilisant une mélange des symboles mystiques et urbaines tels que des plumes, des serpents et des oiseaux. Chaque pièce est façonnée à la main usant des matériaux d’argent, l’argent oxydé et plaqué or et les résultats sont magnifiques. A travers ses collections, qui inclus des bijoux inspirés par des peuples amérindiens et des voyages en paysages magiques, vous pouvez trouver votre propre style en mixant des pièces différentes, comme ces colliers beaux et simples avec des bagues.

Ce style de bijou est fait pour moi, j’adore qu’il est délicat mais dur, perfection. J’aime bien aussi que Daphne mêle des métaux fins avec du cuir contrastant pour des bracelets. De plus, je suis obsédé par des plumes alors naturellement la collection Spirit Lake est mon favori et j’en désire ardemment un collier plaqué or.

J’ai eu la chance de recevoir ce bracelet en argent classique comme cadeau – parfait pour commencer ma collection personnelle de Daphne Dasque ! Alors, si vous êtes jamais à Paris, je vous conseille d’aller à la boutique de Daphne Dasque – vous ne seriez pas déçu !
