La Rochelle, Royan and l”Ile de Re! Google it if you don’t know where it is…
Bonus pic: I didn’t find it in Paris… it was on holidays in l’Ile de Re!
So as you know I am kinda of a product freaka so the first thing I did in Shanghai was to try to find cool place to treat myself! I haven’t find all the ones that were given to me but here is some interesting info about where to go in Shanghai if you are into Streetwear…
It all started in the Xin Tian Di area with Evisu! Nice shop with all their lines, the new one specially!
On the right of the shop their is a shopping center where you also have a small sneaker boutique and two more trendy shop (Comme des Garcons…) that worth a visit.
Then I moved to People Square and that is where you can find the NSW corner in the biggest department store of Shanghai and the Nike Shanghai main shop! For info there is a lot of shop under the Nike umbrella in the city… at least 3 big ones and 3 NSW corner so don’t be afraid of not finding your QS there.
NSW corner at The World Mall:
After I moved to Juice which is the most beautiful shop of Shanghai in my opinion! Product and decor is just as expected sensational (and Expensive)! You can find there the best of the Japanese brands, Sneakers and Clot the owner brand. They didn’t let me take picture but go for it! Just an advice it’s a bit difficult to find…
Then in the same area but on Chang Le road you have Fly Streetwear with a nice selection of Nike SB, Adidas, HUF etc… felt like there was some fake but no they just have some slow moving items…
Then further down the road you find NPC and this one is with Juice one not to miss! Lots of Michael Lau collab and product, some local brands, good products (Cap, Bike, Watch, Bags…) and all the Nike that you want makes it a very good place!
And finally when you go across the road of NPC you can find a small passage that brings you to a sort of market full of little shop that sell new, 2nd hand and a lot of fake from Nike, Neighborhood, Clot, Visvim, Supreme etc…
Guys I’m sorry there is no update but I’m in Shanghai and I didn’t/don’t have time to blog!
The city is amazing and I’m taking a lot of pics when I can! Trust me you will see some shops and a lot of other things when I return! So keep in touch… I return on the 20th… and before that you can follow me on twitter!
So as I said I was in a business trip lately threw Germany (Frankfurt, Cologne, Baden Baden, Duisbourg) and Czech Republic (Prague). To be honest it was a really nice one even if I didn’t really have time to go sight seeing but I had a lot of fun! Like I said you need to build relation so party is work… no?
Anyhow I will come back on my trip but one of the city I had time to enjoy as a tourist was Koln (or Cologne?) so you will find know the picture that I took in the city! I liked it a lot because you find there a right amount of good architecture, nice history, well furnished shops and street or other arts… have a look…
The (Short) general view of the city
The streetart was really nice and it’s part of why Koln is so modern! Nice pieces all over
And the shopping options were really good!

In a Parisian pub… afternoon break
So I’m currently staying at The Majestic Barriere which is one of the Palace of Cannes.
The hotel is really nice with this old European luxurious atmosphere. I love it! The rooms are not up to Dubai standard as there is no coffee machine, are small and no sleepers seen but still quite nice.
What I really like about it? The cosyness and the tired feeling (The hotel is going threw a slow motion refurbishment it seems) as it gives historical feeling to the place.
There is also picture of famous movie star that stayed here along the years at the Festival so that is quite cool!
Let the pictures talk for me…
The hotel from outside
The Stars… on the wall
My lunch… outside on the 6th of December in France that is nice…
And guess what? Dubai is all around again! Very Quicksilver logo isn’t it?
More about Cannes to come…
Will keep you posted!
Here’s the pics that translate my feelings in visual:
