Founder and Publisher of The Boulevardiers, and an original world-class Boulevardier, Kim Steele, has been frequenting boulevards for decades from Delhi, to Cairo, to Paris. Boulevardier implies worldliness and savoir fare about cosmopolitan matters. Kim’s status as a Boulevardier was noted during a shoot for New York Magazine, of which Anna Wintour was then fashion editor. He was solicited as a model for a shoot, and labeled a ‘Boulevardier.’ The moniker has stuck with Kim ever since. Kim Steele is an industrial photographer. In his travels Kim has encountered many similarly inclined thinkers. It is to this collection of minds and ideas that we have launched this on-line publication, to share the rich experience and knowledge of great-minded Boulevardiers.
