Axes Femme, a charming fashion store from Japan opened a new branch in Paris on October 2013. This branch is called ‘Anecdote’, it is the only Axes Femme shop located in Europe. Axes Femme’s inspiration for its theme derived from the Belle Epoque, a period in French history that started in 1871 (also known as golden age). An era of luxurious, delicate and elegant clothing.
Anecdote is situated in Marais, a historical location that was once an aristocratic district in Paris. Inside the store showcases different sweet, elegant, and vintage like clothing that came all the way from Japan. The store has two levels filled with lovely accessories, shoes, and apparels (they also sell kids clothing).
If you have been following lolita fashion, this brand may not be so new to you. It is one of the most sought after style for ‘otome’ (casual maiden fashion).
While I haven’t been to Anecdote in Paris, I have visited an Axes Femme shop in Chiba. The moment I stepped into their store I fell in love with the style concept. It’s so feminine, frilly, elegant and dainty. I really need to visit Paris so I can check out this shop.
Here are some coordinates from Anecdote that I really adore:
