Paul Smith Paris

July 29, 2009

Just found this over at Selectism and it reminds me a lot of the Distillery District in Toronto. Paul Smith recently converted an old shop in Paris into his new store but really change to much aesthetically:

“It is an awesome example of old and new coming together and working perfectly and as Sir Paul Smith explained on his blog when it opened, “The very exciting point about the Grenelle shop is that it is in premises that have been empty since the 1980’s and is in a very ‘interesting’ state of decay! The walls are unpainted for many years, the floor tiles are the original, 80 year old shelves, everything dates back to the 1930’s when La Tourrette was opened by Monsieur Tourrette as a ‘Bougnat’; the left side of the shop selling coal, the right side selling wine.” [It’s Nice That]

Enjoy!
