The AVENUEinsider’s super-chic Parisian pal Andre Saraiva is a man of beaucoup talents – from graffiti artist to nightclub king (Le Baron, Montana etc…), hotelier, clothing designer, filmmaker, magazine editor (Creative Director of L’Officiel Hommes) and now Monsieur Saraiva has pulled out another cool trick from his fashionable hat: nautical/naval tees for the iconic brand Saint James, but with his winking, top hatted “Mr. A” badge in pink on the front. Saint James has been making the shirts with 21 blue stripes for 122 years (which makes us feel young!).

The shirts will be sold at Colette in Paris and Opening Ceremony in New York as well as worn, starting Bastille Day (which is this Thursday, the 14th of July), by the staff of the super chic Standard Hotel. You can also score the shirts at The Standard Hotel’s store and online at thestandard.com.

Meanwhile, how cute is this photograph taken in Montauk by Henry Hargreaves of Andre and his girlfriend Annabelle Dexter-Jones (our recent Chic of the week) in the tee shirts? Elvis and Brigitte Bardot for 2012.
