The Broken Arm Paris

A quintessential hotspot of the Haut-Marais, the epicentre of Paris’s latest trends, this multi-label boutique, which doubles as a café, captures the air du temps with a rare meticulousness. Cutting edge? You can say that again...

It all began with a prophetically named website – Des jeunes gens modernes or "Modern Young Things" – which questioned all aspects of modern creativity: music, fashion, food, etc. In 2013, three members of the collective – Anaïs Lafarge, Romain Joste and Guillaume Steinmetz – set up this boutique-café, which aims to put creativity at the heart of everyday life.

It is hard to imagine a more contemporary space, with its minimalist décor, its ultra-healthy selection of snacks and refreshments and, above all, its lovingly **selected range¨¨ of men's and women's clothing by designers as significant as Jacquemus, Maison Margiela, Comme des Garçons, Lemaire, Isaac Reina, Affix, Stone Island and Raf Simons.

A wardrobe for “modern young things” if ever there was one! Its name, The Broken Arm, is a nod to a ready-made by Marcel Duchamp, kept at MoMA in New York. The piece, which consists of a snow shovel, is entitled "In Advance of the Broken Arm". Obviously, the managing trio believe in the virtues of pre-emption!

All our fashion addresses and focus on trendy shopping in the Marais district.
