Some news from France CXXXIII

Another wonderful day in Brittany with temps in the upper teens and sunny,no rain. We are hoping for a very nice weekend. I am in the area for a change. Some of the latest from France are on:

The beers of Paris, yes we have some local beers too, some were gone and now back on, such as Gallia and Demory. The Gallias is brewed about 60 kms from Paris and the Demory is brewed in Germany with the hops from France. Some are from the district of Château Rouge, 28, rue de la Goutte-d’Or, 18éme.

Some bars do brewed their own in Paris such as French Beer Factory ,176, rue Montmartre, 2éme,   the pubs chain The Frog with five addresses in Paris, and O’Neil, 20, rue des Canettes, 6éme. La Volcelest, in my old Yvelines dept 78, My Beer Company in Hauts-de-Seine, dept 92, the Biére de l’Ourcq in Seine-et-Marne dept 77, the La Parisis in the Essonne ,dept 91 or the Biére du Vexin in Val-d’Oise, dept 95.  webpages to follow:

And to along with a local beer ,why not a local fashion made here with local colors and designs, such as the following;

The Parisian label Gat Rimona unveiled two weeks ago a t-shirt displaying large characters,  American football shirt,  they are found at  104, rue Longchamp (16th). Brand Bazaar, 33, rue de Sèvres (6th); BIBA, 18, rue de Sèvres (7th).

To give himself an air more rabble, is better opt for a Paris Nord sweat. Models are labelled and packaged in the workshop-shop located  oddly, in the Marais. The company, 15, rue Charlot (3rd).; Isakin, 9, rue André-del-Sarte (18th)

Precursor, of the Pigalle store landed in 2008 by editing its name, white on black clothing. The aura of the sector has done the rest. Rihanna has several sweatshirts. Pigalle, 7, rue Henry Monnier (9th).no web it has a facebook page, but I do not put facebook in my blog.

The nostalgic Brandon and Kelly will melt on the ‘Belleville Hills’ pastiche displayed by No/One printed in the workshop Amelot (11th). Studio Store, 57, rue de Charenton (12th). Also at Colette and Isakin.  and

For travel incognito from the Porte de la Chapelle to the Place de la Concorde  metro line 12, we choose printing “river droite”. Attention: the passing to the “rive gauche” model is required past the ­Seine.

Saint Laurent, Bardot and Gainsbourg, among other retro icons appear on the creations of Rue JacobAvailable soon in Heaven Dauphine, 40, rue Dauphine (6th).

Photographer Theo Mouvras (of the Racket claw) prints his own images with a certain sense of telescoping: t-shirt “Place des Vosges” is illustrated with a decor of HLM.  high with the effigy of the Church Saint-Gervais  or the place des Victoires (2éme).Racket, 47, rue d’aboukir.

and if you are on the run like me many times in Paris for a quick sandwich of ham and butter à la française, you to go to the new gare Saint lazare, LAZARE. and if can indulge a bit more time head over to L’Avant Comptoir ,3 ,carrefour de l’Odéon, 6éme.

And to finish with something classic and way away from Paris, try to see this wonderful gardens, the jardins secrets de l’Abbaye Saint-André, on top of the mont Mont-Andaon,  in the town of  Villeneuve-lès-Avignon (the one next to Avignon) with a beautiful view over the Rhône river and valley,  mont Ventoux , and the  palais des Papes.It is open to the public now to November 1st, where nature and heritage comes together. more info here

Cheers and enjoy your week wherever you are.
