Based in New York and Paris, respectively, cult bloggers Scott Schuman (thesartorialist.com) and Garance Doré (garancedore.fr) have the inside scoop on these two fashion capitals, and their idiosyncratic takes on street style have garnered them huge followings. T+L asked where they like to go when they’re not online.
Schuman’s New York
I’m a sucker for a great photography bookstore, like Dashwood Books (dashwoodbooks.com) in NoHo.
The West Village’s Leffot carries a well-curated selection of men’s shoes from labels such as Edward Green.
Every chic Parisian girl goes to Free’p’star (freepstar.com) for discounted designer clothes. I found a YSL jacket there for $70.
The cutting-edge boutique Surface to Air (68 Rue Charlot; 33-1/44-61-76-27), in the Marais, has a stylish private label and up-and-coming French designers.
