CD 19 - Swan Songs With Réginald-Jérôme de Mans

CD 19 - Swan Songs With Réginald-Jérôme de Mans

January 18, 2022

This episode’s guest is the author of the new book Swan Songs: Souvenirs of Paris Elegance. He writes under the pseudonym of Reginald-Jerome de Mans. In the book, he chronicles the end of old Parisian clothing institutions: shops and clothiers that sold luxurious wares for a century and longer, but the world seemingly passed them by. He also writes about a few who remain, but for how long?

We discuss lost shops, lost skills, and, in many ways, a lost world. And be sure to stick around for the end where he discusses his own desire to write and be published, and the process that brought about this book.
