Today marks 14 Juillet or Bastille Day in France. Via history that marks the apex of the French Revolution when rebels stormed the Bastille and rescued only seven prisoners. But the French, always high on symbolism, consider and commemorate the success of getting into the prison to free even a few as the turning point of the revolution. So now, a couple centuries later, the day (as well as the eve beforehand) still counts as cause for great celebration, especially “feus artifices” or fireworks over the Champs Elysees and the Eiffel Tower.
But at Hudson, we’re celebrating cool French style, the kind that we can adopt with our clothes, whether its how Charlotte Gainsbourg (half a Brit via mum Jane Birkin!) wears a men’s cut shirt or striped jumper with jeans, or Sonia Rykiel’s mad cool “chou chou” bag with bullets and her limited edition sunglasses with silver beads on the rims. The `frogs’ also sport a chic way two wear Vans with denim, as seen in the shots of the boys in the slideshow. Even the Hermes bike would look good with a pair of our jeans.
