LA BLOUSE DE LYON
At the bend of popular Barbès and historic Montmartre, a stone's throw from Avenue Trudaine, at 21 Rue Gérando in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, La Blouse de Lyon attracts with its "Prussian Blue" facade, the color symbol of traditional blue of work.
Since 1937 this address has specialized in the sale of traditional work clothing and household linen. Taken over in 1991 by Pierre Renault, the brand began distributing the Burgundy manufacturer Le Laboureur, founded in 1956 in Digoin and specializing in old-fashioned trade clothing. The address became essential for artisans and companions of Le Devoir, and quickly confidential for a few initiates.
July 2019, handover completed and some refreshing work later, the new buyers Gwendoline and Nicolas preserve the soul of the place while updating it. A clientele in search of authenticity mixes with professionals and the new generation of artisans.
La Blouse de Lyon, more than a wardrobe for professionals, is a selection of professional clothing, accessories and utility objects linked to work. If authentic professional clothing always seduces with its resistance to times and passing fashions.
it is also part of a more virtuous approach to living and consuming. Take the time to discover, throughout the seasons which punctuate the offer, small collaborative editions highlighting know-how, a textile line, a creative desire, and always with a clear concern for the right price.
