A Parisian Gentleman in Dubai
On last week’s trip to the UAE I was delighted to make the acquaintance of Hugo Jacomet, who is the clever fellow behind the Parisian Gentleman website, which I can recommend wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in quality menswear and related topics. Beware though, it can become rather addictive as there is lots of good stuff on there (in seven languages!)
Hugo was on the Maison Corthay trip as he is a good friend of the company. He has made a lovely short film for Corthay called La Beauté du Geste (The Beauty of the Gesture), which features a fascinating collection of Swiss artisans, such as a cello maker and a traditional cuckoo clock manufacturer. Hugo introduced the film at Corthay’s Dubai party and I hope it soon is made available for wider viewing.
My thanks for wielding the camera for the above pic goes to Sonya Glyn Nicholson, Hugo’s charming partner-in-life and the author of many very readable features on Parisian Gentleman.
