In this space full of history, in the middle of the famous Parisian area “Le Marais”, Trendland’s friend Lenny Guerrier, owner of Coincidence Paris combines his knowledge of fashion history, his love for design and his talent to find new designers to collaborate with the Swedish gallery Karlsson & Wickman. Within this new project, Coincidence expands their personal selection of classics and new fashion designers, to include the Karlsson & Wickmans amazing collection of mid-century design furnitures and tribal art.
Paris has recently seen its best areas changed with the arrival of new concept stores. Coincidence Paris is one of the key player of this new era and rapidly knew how to find its place by offering a unique and strong identity also an exclusive selection. The fashion and lifestyle collection will be displayed in the basement of the shop, while the design would be presented on the ground floor.
Coincidence is more than a shop, it’s a universe, an experience.
