Buckets & Spades x Balibaris Selection

I was recently asked by Parisian retailer Balibaris to to pick out some of my favourite products from their store, and here's the result. Balibaris started out in late 2009 selling ties and other small accessories, a couple of years on and the chaps have branched out into their own range of clothing which is all produced in France and a few other countries around Europe (apart from the Japanese denim). They also stock brands like Han Kjobenhavn, Opening Ceremony and Sanders as well as having some pretty cool, low-key collaborations going on. The online store has been a big hit, so much so that they will be opening their first boutique in Rue de Marseille, Paris this coming September.

The fluo Ipad case sticks out like a sore thumb I know. Every time I go shopping these days I end up looking at the same old stuff so I'm making an extra effort to challenge my normal tastes at the moment. I reckon this would make a pretty cool additional to my daily carry-arounds. Which is your favourite item from the selection?

Thanks to Balibaris for this opportunity and their photography.

  4. The iPad case immediately jumped out at me as my favourite! Not quite what I might have expected from you, but it's good to mix it up every so often!

  18. I always love your style Mat, it always seems to carefully thought out and yet pretty effortless. I wish I could pick out a wardrobe as minimally and effectively, that'd save the time I spend washing everything ha! ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
