Let’s not forget the French men, especially the young men, they all dress just as well as the girls. Their sense of style and fashion highly developed, sartorial and always spot on. I saw boys as young as 14 or 15 dressed immaculately and rarely if ever I saw a male sloppily dressed, I guess that is simply a French thing.

Funny how only now I noticed that the elements of both outfits are almost identical, white tshirt with print, cardigan, shorts and casual shoes. Well, this one has got to be a staple summer outfit in any man’s wardrobe, big thumbs up from me!

Danish boys - Camden Town

When people say the word “Danish”, I think about pastries, the kind of flaky golden bed of perfectly baked puffed pastry topped with custard and apple, or apricots or my favourite sour cherries. Yum! These boys, they are Danish, they are musicians, they dress well, yum! :p

Describe your style: Heroin anorexic chic, white trash.
Favourite fashion label: Dior
Favourite clothing store: Vintage, second hand shops.

Don’t you think they are 2 sides of a coin? Claus looks like such a handsome good boy, the kind you take to your mum’s for tea, while Lasse looks like your typical bad boy, the kind you know you shouldn’t go for but you fall for anyway. Their fashion sense seems to be in such different places, yet looking at the 2 of them together, their clothes work together. Actually the silhouettes are very similar, skinny jeans with bolder shapes on top, yet Claus is preppy and Lasse is, let me borrow his words, trashy and layered!

As I write this my mind keeps wondering off to Turkey, yes I’m going there next week >___< I'm envisioning myself lost in Istanbul's grand bazaar, awed by the alien like sights at Cappadocia, tanning on the Turkish riviera, etc etc. The day dream alone makes me happy!

Oh I almost forgot! Claus and Lasse's band is called Sha la las, you can listen to their stuff on their myspace. Enjoy :)
