david sarfati is the creative mind behind paris-based men's label 13 bonaparte. after graduating from new york city's renowned f.i.t., sarfati returned to france where he kicked off his career at a parisian department store. after a few years he set out to establish his brand. 13 bonaparte is a hybrid blend of sarfati's interests, and includes elements and fragments of design, urban panorama and architecture, paired with functionality and sharp details. contrary to most brands, the 13 bonaparte collections shun the usual seasonal fashion cycle, and instead suggest continuity and evolution on their own through numbers. the newest collection, simply called collection 3, once again is exemplary of this principle. sarfati plays with workwear codes, creating basic pieces in various colors that can be layered, mixed and matched in order to create an impeccably designed urban chic look that's timeless and versatile. the designer intentionally allows a wardrobe to grow through the combination of new pieces with garments of previous collections. the 13 bonaparte collections are exclusively available online or at the brand's very own boutique in paris. store location: 2bis rue de normandie [marais].
