A few weeks ago, as I was tidying up my shoe drawers, I realised that most of them come from France. I have to admit that there are a few French brands whose collections are always spot on (to me) and I wanted to share them with you. I have selected 3 brands but of course, there are more and you have probably seen some of them in my previous articles. But here is my top 3:
♡ #3. Minelli
Minelli is a brand that makes very good quality classics. Their cuts are quite simple and the materials they use are very good quality. The brand is probably less funky than it's little sister André, which I like very much too, but it offers a higher level of quality and the models are timeless.

♡ #2. Bocage
Bocage is one of my 2015 revelations. All about this brand appeals me: some of their shoes are actually made in France, they are amazing quality and the cuts are just gorgeous. Their shoes are quite funky and very trendy, mixing different materials, patterns and colours, which is something I like a lot in fashion. I have been a faithful customer to this brand since and there hasn't been a single time where I left the shop without having spotted a nice pair.

♡ #1. Sézane
How can I put it... Basically, if I had to be stuck with one brand of shoes for the rest of my life, I would pick Sézane without a doubt. This brand embodies everything I like in terms of fashion, and definitely in terms of shoes. It's simple: there is not one single pair that I don't like on their website. They are amazing quality and the company pays attention to every detail, which I particularly appreciate. My shoes came with a beautiful box, a card, a magazine, a tote bag, a protection bag and a pair of pads to protect the leather sole. I genuinely believe that I will still wear them in ten years and I am certain that they will not become out of fashion.

So tell me, what do you think of those three brands? Did you know any of them, or any other French brand?
