Paris Fashion: Embracing the French Trench

by Badaude

We were blessed with 3 months of near-uninterrupted sunshine. Alas, the fickle Parisian weather dictators have decided that we should wait a little longer before our next late-night dinner en terrasse, never-ending picnic on the Canal Saint Martin or sunbathing on the Ile de la Cité. In honor of the return of the familiar grey sky and blustery days, fabulous writer and illustrator Badaude shares here some sketches of the ubiquitous fickle weather Parisian fashion must: Le Trench Coat. Don’t forget to pack yours! -Geneviève

I adore this! I’m looking for a good trench so I can bring a little bit of Paris into my life until I can find time to get over there 🙂

Classic…I am never without my trench, especially in Paris!
