This Parisian outdoor speciality coffee shop is nestled in a courtyard surrounded by the best haute-couture shopping Paris has to offer. It is the perfect, simple space to enjoy good food, and most importantly, wonderful coffee. The founders Daniel Warburton and Angelle Boucher have many years of experience in the industry, which means that each blue cup of their speciality coffee is honed with years of passion. It is safe to say that Honor café is a must visit when in the eighth arrondissement, being but a mere stones throw away from Avenue Montaigne, the home of the Grands Couturiers of Paris.

For an apt accessory which will cater to all of your needs whilst you explore the city and the latest menswear during fashion week, the SantinoL is the epitome of modern simplicity. Carry it with you to the shows not to be missed this season such as Pigalle , Yohji Yamamoto and Études.

The roasters of Paris, Coutume Café is a coffee sanctuary. A stunning level of thoughtfulness is involved in their roasts, with research and relationships a key driver in their quest to find the perfect destination to source their beans from. The art is then in the extraction, a creative science which allows the beans to reach their full potential. With its interesting white industrial surroundings, accented by parquet flooring, Coutume is a beautiful setting for a quiet pause during fashion week. An important quiet pause in the day to truly enjoy a coffee that deserves more than a mere moment of appreciation.

Hexagone café is a tranquil little shop in which to enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite to eat whilst in Paris. An unpretentious corner of the fourteenth arrondissement, it prides itself on its ‘made in France’ ethos. So after a show, a trip to one of the many small galleries in the area or perhaps following a wander in the beautiful Parc Montsouris, this is the bright place to visit. With quirky features (such as the primary school-esque chairs) against a clean, white backdrop, there is a simplicity to Hexagone. The focus: clearly good flavourful coffee, homemade pastries and a relaxed atmosphere.

The Ravenna satchel bag will make the perfect companion. Despite its traditional design, its innate simplicity means that it is ideal for the relaxed atmosphere of this arrondissement full of artists. It also makes a debonair addition to any street style look.

A visit to Matamata does not solely promise a great cup of coffee and a plate of homemade food, it is a visit to see friends – in the founders Gaël and Gérald. The name, Matamata, in fact has its roots in the surprise visit that Gérald made to this New Zealand town to see Gaël get married. Their café is a place of community and thus, a wonderful little place to meet up and enjoy a relaxing hour or so with loved ones. The founders are, thankfully, as passionate about coffee as they are about creating a creative and collective environment. Only the best is sourced from experienced producers, roasted in micro roasteries, and then brought to you by skilled hands. As they say: “we love people so we serve coffee
