So today I was walking along Boulevard Beaumarchais, and stopped short when I spied an alluring window display with a sign for clothing line Xuly Bët:
The funky line, created by Malian designer Lamine Badian Kouyaté, mixes vintage with African sensibility and is a favorite of fashion divas like Grace Jones. I’d heard a lot about the line before I moved to Paris, but could never get around to finding a boutique. Turns out the location I happened upon had only been open two weeks. What are the chances?
Of course I had to take a look inside:
The shop boasted women’s, mens, and childrens clothing by French designers like Jerome L’Huillier, Ensainte, and Project M, ranging in price from 25€ ($33 USD) for t-shirts to 1200€ ($1,623 USD) for coats. There’s something for everyone!
If you’re ever in Paris, visit the store at 95 Boulevard Beaumarchais in the 3rd arrondissment. If not, check out Xuly Bët at www.xulybet.moreluv.net.
