The 10 Coolest French Brands Out Now

Actually a decade old, Maison Kitsuné is a record and fashion label that was founded in 2002 by Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki. This year, it's been blowing up, opening its first New York store and getting all sorts of attention for its West Coast-inspired spring collection, and keeping the hype going with a cycling-inspired fall collection. Its name is taken from the French word for fox, and the clothing is pretty sly itself, luxury goods that are their own best kept secret. Yes, the prices are pretty up there, but when you need the perfect pair of washed Japanese denim, or a meticulously tailored linen blazer, this is the place to go. It's almost like the shop rich people would shop at to look like they don't drop thousands of dollars on every outfit — even though they do.
