It was founded by the sons of the people behind Comptoir des Cotonniers (French bobo women's wear chain).
There are quite a few Kooples stores here in Paris and their advertisements are everywhere. Looks-wise it has a kind of skinny jeans / vintage military / big hair thing going on which reminds me of The Strokes or APC a few years ago.
