We met by a common friend on a night out in Paris and from the very first minute, before even knowing who we were talking to, we received a very positive vibe. Designer Barnabe Hardy with a huge smile on his face was wearing a check shirt, a casual coat on top and a pair of relaxed jeans. Relaxed and polite was also the way he interacted with us. His oufit was very elegant and it had nothing to do with what one usually expects to see from a man who works in fashion and mostly from someone whose name has worked for top French fashion houses like Lagerfeld and Balenciaga for whom he designed its menswear line for 8 years. Besides, dressing up in a "simple", elegant and masculine way is what a true creator should do nowadays and of course Barnabe Hardy knows that very well.
