Friends with Benefits

blog_friends_with_benefits_01.jpgArnaud Vanraet (above left) and Sébastien Roubaud, cofounders of online men’s wear shop StudioHomme, worked together at Colette, Dior Homme, and Hermës before launching a retail venture of their own in 2009. The fashionable friends they picked up along the way—including shoe designer Pierre Hardy (whom Roubaud calls the “godfather” of StudioHomme) and designer Alexis Mabille—have helped the duo amass a fascinating mix of merch, much of which is exclusive to the site. This spring, for example, Vanraet and Roubaud are offering a summer shoe collection (below) created with British label Mr. Hare and a line of butterfly-shaped bow ties by Mabille.
