As a continuation of the cultural project ‘Eyes on The City,’ “Paris Mon Amour” follows Rejjie Snow through the streets of the French capital. Straying far from tourist areas, Rejjie offers a more grounded, authentic view of the city as he gives a tour between the banlieues and explores the scenes of graffiti artists. Rejjie speaks about his deep connection to the city, as it influenced his relationship to art and his own creative processes.
On how Paris has influenced his music, Rejjie says, “Going to Paris in my formative years really defined a lot of my understanding of the female. Parisian women are so strong and powerful. My first time there, I saw them painting graffiti, driving buses — leading, I guess, in ways ways I hadn’t encountered before.” A notable French presence is evident on Rejjie’s Dear Annie album he debuted last year; the track “Mon Amour” with Parisian singer Milena Leblanc is an obvious nod to the City of Lights.
The Fall/Winter 2019 collection includes jackets with built-in goggles, a tradition within C.P. Company. Offered in a wide range of colors and a new down style, the outerwear-focused collection includes both light and heavy pieces that can be used for layering in the upcoming season.
