Fashion cafés have almost become a genre of its own in recent years, with designer brands such as Dior and Vivienne Westwood as well as streetwear labels like Aimé Leon Dore setting up shops to sell coffee and pastries. On Tuesday, buzzy French designer Simon Porte Jacquemus announces that his eponymous label will also be launching its own café, slated to open in Paris this Thursday, March 28.
Named Citron, the French word for lemon, the café is an unexpected collaboration between Jacquemus and cult-loved Parisian eatery Caviar Kaspia. In an Instagram post, the designer offers his followers a sneak peek at the the café’s dessert menu, dissecting a beautifully-made cake that’s shaped like a lemon adorned with a small daisy. Notably, Citron is located within Galeries Lafayette’s new Champs Élysées flagship that boasts a massive 6,500-square-meter space, according to Vogue.
Café Citron will officially open doors on March 28 at 12:00 p.m. You may find the address below.
