Trends: London / Paris City Visit - The Vintage Boutique. "La Suite"

The Vintage boutique , La Suite is open.
Cool, refined and extrovert.
"La Suite" is the discovery of Boutique culture, where vintage style meets elegant nostalgia.

Style is every thing. At the heart of this mood is a sharp twist of Sartorial elegance, a dash of the dandy, a cravat, a pocket poche, and the aged beauty of well worn vintage denim.
