Fun in Paris Design: Des Habits Tues & Guillaume Trontin

1 comment

I discovered a fabulous designer in the Paris scene while I was meandering through the Marais over the summer. His name? Guillaume Trontin. His site? Des Habits Tues, where you can get an idea of his style.

While he didn’t have his own shop yet as of mid-summer, he is actively participating in what Paris calls “pop up shops,” which is a shop or site that houses different designers depending on the day. I saw his clothing line at a small shop I’ve been to several times in the Marais over the years, off a little side street, but it’s not where you’ll find him if you venture to Paris.

His site tells you where he’ll be showing his latest on particular dates. For example, he has shown at places like Boutique Ephemere on 38 rue des francs bourgeouis (closest metro is St. Paul) and Galerie Ste-Opportune at 1 place ste-opportune (closest metro is Chatelet). He has also shown at Galerie L11 on 11 rue letort (closest metro Jules Joffrin).

Best way to describe his design? Fresh, fun and colorful. While fun is more the order of the day than elegant, he showed me a few ways to spruce up his dresses.

I fell in love with his creativity and was lucky to find him in the store at the time I was there. Each time I switched into a new dress, he adjusted me to ensure the dress fell the way he wanted it to fall. What fun!  His fashion line was in a pop up shop with six other designers, all of which had beautiful garments, jewelry and accessories. Formerly a dancer, he is relatively new to design but oh, man does he have an eye.

It’s hard not to fall in love with Paris fashion time and time again of course, but fresh new talent like Guillaume Trontin makes it even easier.

BTW, as an aside and worth mentioning since I used these guys during my last Paris trip and it’s a great place to mention them since they go hand in hand with shopping. offers limo cars, drivers and guides, all of whom speak English and Spanish, which is a godsend after a long day of shopping in Paris. (this is not a sponsored post – I loved using them, particularly my driver Pablo, so ask for him when you book).

    Love his designs! I purchased a shirt when I was in Paris last spring at a pop up in Marais and I get so many compliments when I wear it!
