Since opening in the heart of the Marais, the Archive 18-20 store hasn’t had a quiet moment. Its founder Séverine Lahyani wanted to create an eye-opening space for her Ly Adams men’s clothing line where people could make new finds or meet new people. She is passionate about style and the history of design, and felt compelled to share her vision of fashion as an art of living. And she’s succeeded! Under a huge glass roof, in a former 400 sq.m workshop, she’s managed to bring together a store selling clothes, accessories, beauty products and designer items, an exhibition space – don’t miss the exhibition of iconic menswear from vintage specialist Brut Clothing until September 2 – and a café where you can savor some delicious detox juices. A concept store? No! Far from a marketing ploy, to Séverine the store is a simple reflection of her eclectic tastes.
