Marithé François Girbaud's old new den
Marithé and François Girbaud are two French designers that have been around for some time (they started designing clothes in the 60's!), but they really became famous more recently (first in the 80's with the release of Flashdance - yes, the main actress Jennifer Beals was wearing one of their jeans, imagine! - and more recently (in 2005), when one of their advertising campaigns was banned for some time (click here and you'll understand why!). Anyway, back to this photo... This is the back of their main shop in Paris, located 38 rue Etienne Marcel. I took it because of the vivid colors but I debated whether I should remove the trash can or not. In the end I decided to leave everything "as is".
