Design Sleuth: Bill Cunningham’s French Work Jacket

Julie Carlson February 06, 2012

Last year's documentary Bill Cunningham New York had us entranced with the New York Times' iconic street-fashion photographer.

Cunningham can be spotted out and about wearing a classic French work jacket, worn for decades by the country's laborers; Cunningham buys his at the Bazaar Hotel de Ville in Paris. Mimic his look by acquiring your own version (we especially like the jacket in black) at the following sources.
