Romain Costa Playlist

Romain Costa Original Playlist     / Architecte, Paris

Architect and fashion shaper Romain Costa has the same approach to getting dressed as to designing a building: it’s all about the proportions, colours and materials.

The French are experts at much more than eating baguettes and wearing berets. When it comes to fashion, they all seem to be masterminds at effortless style – and it’s not just the women who have the trait. French guys – with slim jeans, crisp shirts and polished shoes – can be just as devoted. Although it’s inspiring to imagine all the effortlessness being created in a trice, things are rarely what they seem.

Romain Costa is a shoe-obsessed (he has 300 pairs) blogger and architect who always takes proportions, materials and colours into consideration when getting dressed. We caught up with him during Paris menswear fashion week, and asked him to style his four favourite looks from H&M’s spring collections.
