Not from Paris Madame
"Not from Paris Madame" is not just a motto. Since its birth in 2014, in a medium sized city from East of France, Drôle de Monsieur aims at spotlighting that ambition, talent and success are not the epitome of the main metropolitan cities.
Today, the brand has decided to team up with multiple inspiring artists around the world, who have built their art and world far away from the big city life. Drôle de Monsieur will meet these artists, their true inspirations and influences by creating strong and supportive relationships with them.
Talent comes from everywhere and "Not from Paris Madame" will be the window for this.

Mike Tyson

It’s more than just a film. This particular story deeply resonated with the founders, as “Iron Mike” embodies both the spirit of Drôle de Monsieur and the values of Not from Paris Madame. Of course, Mike Tyson isn’t from Paris, but neither is he really from New York: born in Brownsville, having grown up in NYC’s darkest neighborhoods, he made his own way with sound and fury, building a narrative that has nothing to dowith the usual Big Apple success stories.

Masego

Virginia isn’t known for its music scene, despite being the birthplace of a huge number of iconic artists. For Masego, a self-taught musician, this makes a better story: at 8 years old, he was blown away by the talent of a church drummer in his hometown of Newport News, an encounter that sparked his passion for music.
