This baby is just break-your-heart cool, the kind of classy cool that makes me want to go skateboarding with a copy of something by Sartre in my pocket. They are essentially rip-offs of the Nike windbreakers, and yet somehow they look like they’re the real deal. Like the Nike versions are just crude and inferior copies which is quite a feat because the Nike ones came first.

I think it’s partly that the colours used are much bolder and sophisticated. Also, I’ve had my hands on them and the fabric is soft and has a great drape to it. Perhaps its just the name that’s done it – Reine et Roi is actually a limited edition line from New York based shop and label, Classic Kicks and not French at all. This is how they suck you in, those crafty Americans…

Go get ‘em.
