JUNGLES IN PARIS #2: DEYROLLE
As we worked on the Spring Summer 2013 collections, the jungle was our main inspiration. We went on a trip to rural Thailand to find the essence of the jungle, but we also tried to find this idea in our everyday lives in Paris. This started us on our quest to find the jungles of the city - the places where we could find that bit of nature and wildness on our lunch breaks - and we found so many amazing and inspirational jungles within our own stomping grounds. The next one on our lists is DEYROLLE!
Long one of our favorite places in Paris, Deyrolle is one of the most inspiring places in the world, not just Paris. Filled with taxidermy of just about every animal you could imagine from every single continent on earth, this store is basically a museum where almost everything is for sale. It's an amazing thing to be able to see up close and maybe even feel the real fur and skin of these animals. It's beautiful as well as a bit sad, to see these creatures displayed like so. But we tell everyone it's a must see if you're in Paris for any amount of time.
Deyrolle is located 46, rue du Bac, 75007 Paris
