French Flair


The French are inherently a stylistic lot when it comes to fashion, even attending a church service, like the one I encountered today at the basilica in Nice. However, it wasn’t the usual Saturday mass, but it was a mass confirmation service for 140 new confirmants, both from the black and white community. The black commmunity are mainly from Northern African countries, and less so of Carribeans like in the UK.

I love the way the Africans dress for church. They make an effort. Smart sharp suits, cool leather shoes for the guys, huge colourful hats, flowing dresses for the women, and pure white silk garments for the confirmants. And its a whole family affair too from the very young to the elderly.

C’est tres chic.
