Lyon has been a wonderful surprise with everything from ‘traboules’ (secret passageways), to beautiful store windows to fabulous food. The city is amazingly beautiful and for 80 years it has been recognized  as the food capital of France and the world. It was the home of Paul Bocuse and his legend lives on. I have stuffed and over-stuffed myself!

I am always on the look-out for cute street fashion and I thought it would be fun to compare Paris and Lyon fashion-wise. The women look very stylish in Lyon- maybe a little ‘healthier’ and more relaxed than the Parisian’s. There are definite trends: leather moto jackets, high-waisted jeans, ankle boots, hip tennis shoes and of course scarves and more scarves. What was interesting is that the colors found in the food creations are repeated in the clothing colors worn: ochre, aubergine, crimson and black. Click on the picture to expand the view…

  • Jeans: Mostly skinny, some boyfriend and some wider legs. Most are high waisted, have holes and rolled hems.

  • Guignol: The mascot of Lyon- he was an impulsive young fellow, quick tempered, who wore his heart on his sleeve. He championed the weak, defends the oppressed and rallies against injustice.
