parisian sneakers bensimon arrive in the philippines
...is how I like to describe myself and my life. Bensimon shares this same philosophy which is probably why I was so smitten during the Parisian-themed launch of the French sneaker brand at Enderun last night.
Enderun already boasts of beautiful architecture and its gorgeous elements were extra emphasized last night when the people behind Bridges PR transformed one of their function rooms into a mini-Parisian street setting complete with a cafe, market, and art gallery.
The reason behind the elaborate set-up was so we could experience first-hand what Parisian living feels like. since this is primarily what Bensimon is really about...an appreciation for heritage, the artisanal and handmade + the effortless, "perfectly imperfect" street style chic of Paris.

some background info on Bensimon:
created 30 years ago by two brothers; Serge and Yves Bensimon who wanted to capture the true meaning of the Parisian love of life into an iconic pair of sneakers that embody the simple, effortless and natural way of living in Paris. Bensimon sneakers are inspired by travel, military and true Parisian fashion.
I grabbed me a gorgeous, bright yellow pair of Bensimons that I am already in love with. They are super flexible, comfortable and they feel like "covered flip-flops" when walking. I also love the fact that you can just throw them in the washer and hang to dry when they get dirty.

Bensimons are so chic and versatile that a number of celebrities have taken to them and made them a part of their daily routine. Love these street style snaps...
Bensimon makes it possible to be chic yet comfy at the same time so it gets a two thumbs up from me!
