We’re on our way to Paris and besides getting inspired, eating & drinking there’s one other thing on our to-do list: shopping! The city of light really is goddamn fashion walhalla. At every corner of every street you find another interesting flagship, concept or whatever store to enter. If we ever win the lottery we won’t have to think twice about which destination to choose.
But where to go? We made a list of our 10 favorite spots… there’s loads more but if we had to mention every boutique worth visiting, our server would crash.
Le Bon Marché
The mall of Paris… Luxury bags, perfume, clothing, accessories, shoes and so on. You name it, they have it. If you don’t have loads of time, this definitely is the place to be.
Address: 24 Rue de Sèvres, septième arrondissement
Of all concept stores, this is the most inspirational one. And they always have loads of interesting collaborations to offer. Just take your time, breathe and when hungry you can consider having lunch in the basement.
Address: 213 Rue Saint Honoré, première arrondissement
When looking for anything vintage you have to pass by Kiliwatch. Just be aware of the fact that you won’t see much daylight for at least 30 minutes.
Address: 64 Rue Tiquetonne, deuxième arrondissement
Besides du pain, vain et du Boursin, what’s more French than Isabel Marant? She breathes the true Parisian “je m’en fous” spirit, a must-visit!
Address: 1 Rue Jacob, sixième arrondissement / 47 Rue de Saintonge, troisième arrondissement / 16 Rue de Charonne, onzième arrondissement / 151 Avenue Victor Hugo, seizième arrondissement
Chanel at rue Cambon
No need to explain why this one is on our list 😉
Address: 31 Rue Cambon, première arrondissement
The story of LECLAIREUR started at the Champs d’Elysées in the 80’s. Since then they spread over the entire city of Paris and even crossed an ocean to open a shop in LA. Known for its large offer of new, unknown brands.
Address: 40 Rue de Sévigné, troisième arrondissement / 39-41 Avenue Hoche, huitième arrondissement / 10 Rue Boissy d’Anglas, huitième arrondissement / 10 Rue Hérold, première arrondissement
Merci isn’t inspirational such as Colette and L’Eclaireur. It’s rather a cosy shop with a very interesting collection of deco.
Address: 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais, troisième arrondissement
Hubby of Isabel Marant and the man knows how to create an accessory collection too. If you’re looking for a nice leather designer bag that’s not too much in your face, this is where you need to be.
Address: 127 Galerie de Valois, première arrondissement / 4 Rue Jacob, sixième arrondissement
One of the luxurious vintage treasures shops Paris has to offer.
Address: 33 Galerie de Valois, première arrondissement
Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V for Balenciaga, Hermès, Céline, Dior and Saint Laurent
All the big fashion houses in one little area. If you’re not in the mood for a lot of walking, we suggest you head to the huitième arrondissement for a touch of luxury.
Adress: Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V, huitième arrondissement
