“Colonne étincelante, trophée indélébile” Victor Hugo, Odes and Ballades, the seventh ode.

For Victor Hugo, the famous French poet, Place Vendôme is the symbol of Parisian French elegance and classicism. Le Vendôme, a 5-eyelet Oxford from Maison Corthay, was designed to pay tribute to Pierre Corthay’s beginning at Rue Volney, a charming street just a stone’s throw away from  Place Vendôme.
