                 > The two sides of the Marais
                 A popular shopping district, the Marais is characterized by trendy in vogue boutiques in its upper reaches (haut) and
                 more classic but equally not-to-be-missed shops in its southern part. It is a pleasant place for a stroll particularly
                 since the rue des Rosiers has become pedestrianized, and on Sunday when the streets around the arteries of
                 Francs-Bourgeois and Temple are closed to motorized traffic. It is in this district that the H&M brand has chosen
                 to present its new line in France: Collection of Style. COS is a new fashion concept combining meticulousness and
                 detail for design at a good price. The same goes for Adidas, which has opened a concept store dedicated to its line
                 Silver, in the same street. The famous multibrand store the Éclaireur has moved from rue des Rosiers to open a
                 new 500 m² superb design space for fashion, accessories, art objects and perfume.

                 > Up-and-coming young designers
                 Paris has always been a launching pad for young fashion designers, who often go on to become internationally
                 famous. The trend continues with a new generation of stylists such as Alexis Mabille who after nine years at Dior
                 has launched his own series of collections, or Gaspard Yurkievich, whose first Parisian boutique opened in rue
                 Charlot, in the Marais. The district also has other young designer stores including: Valentine Gauthier, Surface 2
                 Air, Erotokritos, Les Prairies de Paris, Christophe Lemaire, Iro, Philippe Zorzetto and Tsumori Chisato. The Forum
                 des Halles, a major Parisian shopping centre, also showcases these new talents in its Espace Créateurs.

                 > Shopping at the museum
                 For a different kind of shopping, museum shops are full of contemporary and classic goods combining shopping
                 with a cultural visit. In fact, numerous Parisian art venues have a shop with articles related to the works exhibited,
                 and each national museum in Paris has a shop. For the latest fashionable object, go to Printemps Design after a
                 visit to the latest exhibition on the sixth floor of the Centre Georges-Pompidou, or the contemporary shop Black
                 Block, at the Palais de Tokyo, a few steps from Trocadéro. For objects that are rarer or in an older style, take a
                 stroll under the Louvre pyramid. Next to the Seine, between the museum and the garden, the shop of the Musée

                 Paris is a great place for all types of bargain hunting! In traditional places like the flea markets at the historic
                 gateways to the capital you will find second-hand clothes and furniture, and along the banks of the River Seine, the
                 famous bouquinistes offer numerous old and second-hand books, engravings and postcards. Bargain hunting in
                 Paris also means combing the many second-hand sales which take place during the year. Good bargains are also
                 to be found in the Dépôts-ventes (second-hand shops where goods are sold on commission) and in the second-
                 hand clothes corners of the major department stores.

                 > Multi-brands
                 From the biggest brands to more confidential labels, multi-brand shopping is
                 making its mark in the capital. It facilitates the creation of an eclectic wardrobe
                 with a huge range within close proximity. These stores are also a good way of
                 interpreting upcoming trends, new designers who will be making tomorrow’s
                 fashion. Le66, on the Champs-Élysées, is a Mecca for shopping with 1,200 m²,
                 and each month a guest of honnour shows their selection alongside the 66
                 best of the moment. The designer Maria Luisa honours women’s fashion with
                 numerous English brands which are hot favourites with rock stars. Multi-
                 brand lingerie is also in vogue at Lilou au Balcon. For multi-brands that are
                 100% haute couture, the place to go is Montaigne Market on the avenue of the
                 same name. Collections include ready-to-wear, accessories and jewellery.

                 >           Floating sales dates
                 Legislation now allows shopkeepers to organize a week of sales during the year, at a time of their choice, in
                 addition to the five-week sales periods in winter and in summer (the dates of which are decided by prefectural
                 decree). An initiative that makes the capital even more attractive for affordable shopping.


                 > Yard sales
                 To take a piece of Parisian life home with you, there is nothing like a yard sale! Informal and friendly, the principal
                 is simple: Parisians set out their personal bric-a-brac for sale at often rock-bottom prices. Websites give all the
                 latest news on the capital’s yard sales so as not to miss the most popular, those in rue de Bretagne, place de la
                 Bourse, Montmartre, etc.

                 > Perfume in the air
                 Finding an original perfume, that is the current fashion in Paris at the moment.
                 After the installation of the Labo corner at Colette, a veritable chemist’s
                 laboratory of fragrances, other places have shown themselves equally
                 inventive. Such is the case at État libre d’Orange, which describes itself as a
                 « space for olfactory libertinism”, and which proposes perfumes as original
                 as “Jasmine and Cigarette” or “Wonderful Secretion”. In the new showcase
                 boutique of Francis Kurkidjan, close to the Tuileries Gardens, the public can
                 discover seven exceptional perfumes, as well as a whole range of perfumed
                 objects, notably leather bracelets. As for the new Guerlain boutique, it
                 presents the brand’s most famous creations as well as new exclusive ones.

                 where anything can happen and where brands give free reign to their imagination. 2009 saw Prada place Beauvau,

                 in the capital. The big store Alter Mundi is a reference for ethical and fair
                 trade; it offers a diverse range of products: home decor, furniture, fashion
                 and accessories, but also cosmetics and delicatessen goods. For tops or
                 jeans in organic cotton, go to Sanaa; at Ekyog, you’ll find jackets and a large
                 collection of clothes for children, made of hemp or seaweed-based textiles.
                 The boutique Equivalence works with Madagascar, Vietnam and Cambodia
                 and offers a huge choice of furniture and jewellery. Not forgetting the ethical
