PARIS — Los Angeles rock ’n’ roll styles have landed in the chic Saint Germain neighborhood here with the opening of the Christian Audigier Cos.’ first Smet store in Europe, part of the L.A.-based company’s push into the Continent.
Selling streetwear and accessories for women and men, Smet, a collaboration between French-born designer Christian Audigier and French rock legend Johnny Hallyday, who was born Jean-Philippe Smet, is the latest of three Audigier-owned stores to open in the area. The Smet boutique, which opened in June, is next to Audigier’s eponymous store on the Rue Bonaparte, which opened last December, and minutes from the company’s Ed Hardy location, which opened on the Rue de Rennes in April.
