DAVID 
Dogo Store Manager 

See David and retrace your steps to check that you weren't dreaming. See him again to believe that, yes, this man is really a strange zebra who does not fear the gaze of others.

Eccentric like Alexander McQueen, David makes, just like the Englishman, his own clothes which he wears and markets under his brand… Vomidechat.

Our young man, who defines himself as a “pink alien”, is incidentally the manager of a shoe store, rue des Rosiers, but above all an activist. His fight ? “Let everyone be able to dress as they want.”

As an employer, he doesn't care much about the appearance of the people on his team. “What interests me is the personality itself.”

His forehead tattoo depicts the unaloma, a Buddhist sign that symbolizes spiritual awakening. And he dyes his mustache with colored mascara. His locker room? Only one rule: David only wears pink 365 days a year.

YOU HAVE IT (STREET)LOOK COCO

The look of Ufo, Jeff and Juno

The look of Ufo, Jeff and Juno

Le Marais is the district of encounters and chance. At the turn of a street, we come across beings with unique character and beauty. Here we are in front of Jeff, a DJ, model and graphic designer. Of Swiss, Congolese and Mauritian origin, he introduces himself: “I came to mix a cutting-edge English brand for Unknownuk…

Violette's look

Violette's look

VIOLETTE Student in art historyIn the past, Parisians had a bad reputation. But we have to believe that times are changing. “In Paris, people are often pleasant and not afraid to mingle with others. For example, there is a beautiful queer community...

Iulio's look

Iulio's look

We saw him from afar, with his 1m75 height, his magnetic demeanor and his false airs of Adam Driver, the very sexy American actor (Marriage Story, Star Wars, etc.). Iulio, with an alert step, was going with his girlfriend, also an exotic beauty, towards the Galleria Continua to see the exhibition Stuff to do curated by JR.

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

Millet, from the mountains to the Marais

From the top of this outdoor and technical clothing store, a hundred years of family history gaze down upon you. Created in 1921 in Chamonix, the Millet brand is still managed by the family of the same name. It is therefore a bit of French heritage and know-how that arrives from the Alps to settle in the Marais…

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Divine brunch at the foot of Notre-Dame

Of course, officially, it is not the Marais. But at Son de la Terre, a barge recently moored at the Montebello quay (5th), the 4th arrondissement is in sight. Moreover, this one is incredible: on one side, it is Notre-Dame flooded with sunlight; on the other, the quays, the book sellers, the walkers, the joggers.

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Saka, a cocktail bar like in Tokyo

Here is an address which gives the measure of the transformation of the Marais. And it's enough to silence the grumpy people whose mantra is: “It was better before…” No, everything was not better “before” in the Marais. Besides, there was no American bar like Saka, which cultivates a form of excellence that can only be found in Japan.

WHAAAAAAAT?!
