Admittedly, Eleven Paris wasn’t a label I was familiar with until recently and that’s a blooming shame. This brand shares the same birth year as SINGER22 (2003) and, while one is a label and the other a retailer, both curate contemporary taste and unfussy style.
Silk screen printed T-shirts are a cornerstone of their look which is further accented by athletic touches and an underlying rocker tone. The designers glean inspiration from their travels abroad and from their ravenous scouring of the internet, particularly tumblrs. By mixing humor with a strong sense of style, simple tees with unique jackets, and detached coolness with deliberate expression, Eleven Paris has garnered our attention and a DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT.
I’m impressed with not only Eleven Paris’s styling direction but with the fortification of their brand by renowned artists from various arenas. Musicians, photographers, and other pop culture icons find themselves or their work immortalized in cheeky images on wearable pieces, further distinguishing this brand from its peers. What’s more, with the 90’s experiencing a renaissance in the fashion world it is only appropriate to feature a brand whose current collection reflects that era with true panache.
