While perusing around the 6th arrondissement of Paris, I came across a cute little gift shop, Bathroom Graffiti. (The city of Paris is divided into 20 sections or arrondissements and they all have a bit of a different style). The 6th arrondissement is most comparable to the Upper West Side of Manhattan in my opinion – lots of designer boutiques, antique & art shops, intellectuals…
We stayed with a friend in the 5th arrondissement, a quaint area walking distance away – walking was often times more enjoyable than taking the metro. I do have to say that we also became pro’s at Metro-ing via Paris after a few days, OBV…. been to one city, been to ’em all! Where we stayed was super close to the Notre Dame & the Île Saint Louis (or what we liked to call the “ice cream island.”) BEST ICE CREAM ON EARTH, literally.
ANYWAY – while in Bathroom Graffiti, I discovered these funky, edgy bags from ELEVENPARIS. ELEVENPARIS is French Brand from Paris that was created in 2003. ELEVENPARIS’ slogan is ‘Life is a Joke’ and I just love every last drop of that!
“Combining humour, pop culture, rock references and contemporary cool, ELEVENPARIS T-shirts symbolise the brand’s silhouette. Wear them with a nonchalant air, in conjunction with refined items from the collection.”
The popular photo printed t-shirts have gained major popularity because they’re hella funny and the celebs faces that they use effing rule! Fell in love with the Kate Moss pink bag although the Beyonce & Biggie Smalls bags were calling my name as well. I’ve been using this little bag as a laptop bag all week.
