The street art in Paris is truly magnificent. I have been taken aback by the creativity that permeates the billboards and blank concrete walls. But the art only begins on the street. Designers have taken to this style in the form of graphic t-shirts. T-shirts ranging from Alexander McQueen to Antik Batik have translated graffiti into mainstream fashion.

I am a huge fan of almost any and every graphic t. But if I had to choose, Alexander McQueen takes the win. He has put his own personal spin on this street graffiti style.
Daily I am graced with the presence of fabulous Parisian graffiti. As I walk to the Corvisart Metro, enroute to APC, I pass a super chic restaurant: “Chez Gladines”. It maintains a younger crowd and fancies graffiti. The collage above commemorates some of my favorite places right outside the restaurant.
