L’amour est bleue
Vincent Tallec – a Frenchman in Stockholm.
In a tiny store on Skånegatan in SOFO, Stockholm’s trendiest neighborhood, a Frenchman carefully rearranges blue overshirts and woolen sweaters. In his right pocket he secretely keeps a pack of Gauloises and an old Opinel. To him, the items on the hangers around him are not clothes – they’re stories. Answer his cheery ”Bonjour!” and he’ll tell them to you. For hours and hours.

Original Craftsman’s jacket
This jacket in heavy, broad and very durable cotton corduroy was originally constructed for carpenters, brick layers, metal workers and other craftsmen to stay warm when working outdoors. Pockets have re-inforced lining to keep sharp objects from poking through, in case you want to bring screws and nails somewhere.
For generations, the Guernsey wool sweater has kept its fishermen warm on the North Sea. It is made from 100% tightly woven worsted wool – a slick wool which keeps out the wind and rain. Every sweater is finished by hand and signed by the knitter. The traditional design is unisex, has a stand-up half collar and no defined front or back – according to legend for making the sweater easy to put on in the dark.
