I was finally able to check out Bazar et Garde-Manger last Sunday, a very lovely and eclectic shop located between Omotesando and Aoyama Dori. Bazar et Garde-Manger is importing in Japan products created by French designers/ artists, some I already knew and some I have discovered in the shop. They also have beautiful vintage furniture pieces, and it allows for a very unique "cabinet de curiosité" kind of atmosphere.
Behind the concept are Marthe Desmoulins and Franck Dorat, creators/ stylist/ artists extraordinaire who used to run the famous Absinthe shop in Paris where I spent hours and hours during my fashion student years browsing their selection of clothes and other delightful accessories...
My photos don't give credit enough to the wonderful selection of objects, toys, furnitures, home linen, accessories etc... made available to anyone who likes one-of-a-kind, unique pieces and young designers collections.
You will be able to find brands such as La Cerise sur le Gateau, Les Touristes, Lyndie Dourthe, Rice, Jerome Galvin and more...
I have to write "une mention speciale" for my friends Yann Gicquel and Jérome Gigot, owners and designers behind French label Les Touristes (see photo below) who have introduced me to Bazar et Garde-Manger... I am a big fan of their colorful and "flowerful" collections!
