The Kooples is well known as the goalpost for casual French fashion. They incorporate everything from slouchy tees, to wrap dresses, to lace-up platform boots.

This small French powerhouse launched their store in the NOLITA neighborhood of New York City only one ago, and have been making waves since they opened shop. Founder, Morgane Sezalory began selling her sister’s vintage clothing in 2004 off Ebay and with a little luck, and a keen sense of what the market craves, the brand has grown into the online shopping megastore it is now.
Founded by fashion darling AnneLaure Mais, this collection contains the best in French style incorporating gingham jumpsuits, off-the-shoulder dresses, beaded mini bags, and straw kitten heels. It’s fairly new still with only 2 seasons under their fashionable belt, it would be a good idea to start stocking up before the rest of the fashion hungry world catches the drift.
Veja is taking the footwear world slowly but surely by using ecological and fair trade conditions and by crafting their shoes with cooperatives of small producers and social associations in Brazil and France. Ethics are valued highly at Veja as they have just released a line of vegan sneakers to conscious consumers.
