                                 The art of shopping in 2011. Paris is synonymous with fashion. There are
                                 more and more prestigious boutiques opening in the main shopping areas.
                                 Check out places around the major department stores near to Opéra, in the
                                 Haut Marais, the Palais Royal and of course on the Champs-Elysées, at Saint-
                                 Germain-des-Prés or along rue Saint-Honoré. As well as the classic places to
                                 shop, there is also a wave of ephemeral stores, designed to promote secondary
                                 lines or niche brands without a fixed home. The most recent include pop-up
                                 shops Comme des Garçons Black, Vanessa Bruno Athé, YSL, the fair-trade
                                 jeans Nu, trainers Supra, down-jackets Pyrenex ... For men, the trend is for
                                 relaxed chic. Balenciaga and Dries Van Noten are opening new retail spaces,
                                 the first in the world for their menswear lines (after Martin Margiela, Ventilo
                                 and Sandro); Melinda Gloss, the French luxury menswear line, has opened its first sales point in the Marais. As for
                                 the multibrands, there are new brands at French Trotters Homme, BHV Homme, Citadium, and Balthazar — the
                                 recently revamped menswear department at Bon Marché.



                                 NEW ADDRESSES
                                 > Fashion on a grand scale
                                 With large-scale shopping outlets offering ever-more choice, spanking new and ultra-stylish interiors and new
                                 places for illustrious brands, Paris is stepping up the pace and updating its fashion scene. The Champs-Elysées,
                                 the world’s most beautiful avenue has seen some prestigious arrivals. At the end of 2010, H&M launched a
                                 flagship store designed by Jean Nouvel, one of the most famous French architects, not far from the crystal palace
                                 showcase of the Swarovski brand, inaugurated in 2010. As for Abercrombie & Fitch, the famous American brand,
                                 a store is planned to open between now and May 2011, and rumour has it that a Levi flagship is expected to open
                                 at any time. In another district, the 2nd arrondissement, Cos, the upscale brand of H&M is opening a third outlet
                                 in Paris, in rue Montmartre. This opening comes soon after the inaugurations of its first boutiques in the rue des
                                 Rosiers (4th), in the Marais, and in rue de Passy (16th). The Swedish brand Acne, which already has an outlet at the
                                 Palais Royal (1st), is also opening a new ‘Studio’, planned for early in the New Year, not far from the concept store
                                 Merci, which has given a new impetus to the Haut Marais district. Finally, on the Left Bank, things are changing
                                 too: after the opening of the Burberry and Ralph Lauren flagships on boulevard Saint-Germain, the legendary
                                 Hermès brand takes up residence here! The new store of this luxury brand is quite exceptional.

                 UPCOMING DISTRICTS
                 > The Haut Marais, a new Eldorado
                 For some time now, the area around the rue de Bretagne, to the north of the Marais has been making a name for
                 itself. There’s a buzz of retail activity with cutting-edge fashion and lifestyle labels. Of course, leading addresses
                 include the not-to-be-missed concept store Merci, and Bonton, the chic French brand for children, which is housed
                 in its impressive three-floor flagship. Don’t forget to stroll down rue Charlot, rue du Poitou and rue Vieille-du-
                 Temple to soak up all the atmosphere of the “French touch” thanks to small independent and mainly Parisian
                 labels like the ready-to-wear A.P.C., April 77, Gaspard Yurkievich, Isabel Marant, Surface to Air, Bless, Thomsen,
                 Les Prairies de Paris or Vanessa Bruno. Children’s fashion is well represented with Zef and Finger in the Nose.

                 > Palais Royal, chic and cutting edge
                 The perfume maker Serge Lutens set the trend when he opened his perfume shop here in 1992, followed by
                 the luxury shoe maker Pierre Hardy ten years later … Previously devoted to stamp collections and antiques, the
                 magnificent galleries and arcades of the Palais Royal next to the rue Saint-Honoré, have become a centre for
                 Parisian fashion. They now house glove maker Maison Fabre, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Rick Owens, as well
                 as the doyen of Parisian vintage couture Didier Ludot, the self-proclaimed king of the little black dress. Latest
                 arrivals include the ethnic fabrics of Franco-Danish brand Epice. The surrounding streets are just as interesting.
                 There is the flagship of the Maison Martin Margiela, the ready-to-wear brand Sandro and the only Kitsuné shop,
                 the highly popular small Parisian label for fashion and electronic music.

                 DEPARTMENT STORES
                 > The new Parisian ‘museums’
                 More than simple shops, Paris’s department stores have become multi-service and multicultural centres open
                 to all types of contemporary design. Galeries Lafayette boasts a 3,200 m² shoe department with 150 brands,
                 including the edgy designs of Karine Arabian and Tila March, and many other brands exclusive to the store.
                 Window displays are decorated by artists and the Galerie des Galeries, on the store’s first floor, regularly plays
                 host to contemporary art exhibitions. The end of 2010 heralds the opening of the 100% organic Lafayette Organic,
                 selling delicious sandwiches and salads, etc. to eat at the store or takeaway. Since being bought over in 2006 by the
                 Italian Maurizio Borletti, the Printemps Haussmann has been moving more and more towards luxury goods, with
                 Louis Vuitton or Coach, the cult American leather goods brand, and in particular, with the ultra trendy multibrand
                 Maria Luisa. In Paris for 20 years now, this pioneer of fashion has closed her store on rue du Mont-Thabor to
                 move to take up residence exclusively at Printemps. The BHV also encourages young fashion and design talent,
                 while Le Bon Marché, on the Left Bank, has adopted an edgy arty fashion with frequent temporary exhibitions
                 and permanent displays of art works in its various departments. Creativity and innovation are a hallmark of these
                 department stores that are always a wonderful experience for the shopper ... with art displays as an extra plus.

                 SHOPPING À LA CARTE
                 Fashion and accessories
                 > Lifestyle at concept stores
                 The first concept store opened in Paris over ten years ago. Since then, Colette
                 has continued in the same pioneering spirit and many other stores have been
                 similarly inspired. The same eclectic spirit for the rare and unexpected can
                 be found in new stores where fashion goes beyond items of clothing. Merci
                 opened in the Haute Marais in 2009. Buying better and locally is now the
                 order of the day, as showcased in exemplary fashion by Merci, on boulevard
                 Beaumarchais in the Marais. A new 1,500 m² concept store with a socially
                 responsible ethic, Merci offers a range of original items, including ready-
                 to-wear garments made by emerging design talents (Forte Forte, Acne,
                 Swildens), furniture, objects and utensils with timeless charm and practicality,
                 and eco-friendly products. The store also features a literary cafe, a chic dining
                 hall, and a perfumery. Most of the store’s profits are donated, via a foundation, to several associations that provide
                 aid to women and children in Madagascar. L’Eclaireur presents a range of clothing trends in a more classic style.
                 Fashion, accessories, toys, books and home decor feature amongst its five shops, including two for men, each with
                 their own unique and pronounced style. The most recent is in the Marais; the one in rue Boissy d’Anglas mixes the
                 fashion and design of the Italian Fornasetti, then there is a men’s store in the Marais and on the Champs-Elysées.
                 A little further along the avenue des Champs-Elysées, Le66 is a huge retail space devoted to fashion, accessories,
                 books and music.

                 > Vintage trends
                 Vintage is back in force and becoming a major trend of our time. Clothes and accessories from the 1940s and
                 iconic pieces from the 1980s are experiencing a whole new lease of life. Numerous second-hand or cut-price
                 retailers offer discounts of more than 40% to 60%. Paris is a worthy rival to London and its trendy Camden Town
                 with an area of second-hand and vintage couture shops. Past collections from the greatest fashion brands can be
                 had at addresses like the Palais Royal, where connoisseur Didier Ludot is one of the most celebrated Parisians.
                 At Etienne-Marcel, the most well-known second-hand clothes shop is Kiliwatch; in the Marais, there is a new
                 shop with the cool name Hippy Market. Vintage fans will not fail to visit the shops of Violette and Léonie, Free’ P’
                 Star and the two shops in the Marais, or that of Odetta for haute couture for example. Bastille also has quality
                 addresses such as Come on Eileen or En Ville.

                 Beauty
                 > Perfumes to enjoy in exceptional places
                 Paris elegance has always been synonymous with an exquisite taste for scent
                 and perfumes. The most recent French perfumeur Francis Kurkdjian has his
                 own perfume house. This exquisite establishment, devised by the famous ‘nose’
                 behind MaDame for Jean Paul Gaultier, Eau Noire Dior, presents his amazing
                 world of fragrances in elegant refinement. Another sophisticated venue is The
                 Different Company, a contemporary haute perfume house founded in 2000 by
                 ‘nose’ Jean-Claude Ellena (exclusive perfumeur to Hermès) and his daughter.
                 Also of note, the return of lunx perfumes, available at Costes, with a selection
                 of their famous original range. The relationship between nature and poetry
                 is the main focus at Serge Lutens. Each bottle is an invitation to dream, from
                 “Bornéo”, “Féminité du bois” and “Louve” to “Fille en aiguille”. Alternatively,
                 try Annick Goutal’s seductively light and discreet “Eau d’Hadrien” with its
                 notes of Sicilian lemons. There’s a change of atmosphere and perfume over at the “Corner du Labo”, at Colette,
                 where perfume laboratory assistants are on hand to help you create your own personal fragrance. You’ll find
                 countless other enchanting places to discover, including L’Artisan Parfumeur, Nicolaï, the Editions de Parfums
                 Frédéric Malle, and of course Dyptique — the famous Parisian house for candles and perfume, which opened a
                 new shop at the end of 2010.

                 > Natural beauty
                 Science and common sense are increasingly in agreement on this point: there’s
                 no better way of achieving natural beauty than opting for nature itself and all
                 of the benefits it offers — essential oils, soaps, shampoo and even organic sun
                 products, plant-based preparations, and more. Brands such as Aesop, the
                 Australian plant-based brand, with two addresses in Paris; Mademoiselle Bio,
                 in the Motte-Picquet—Grenelle neighbourhood, and Korres, the Greek brand
                 which now has two sales points in Paris, in the Marais and in Saint-Germain-
                 des-Prés, are becoming new models of an art of living and consuming that is
                 increasingly eco-friendly.

                 > Top jewellers in Paris
                 More than boutiques, jewellers provide
                 sumptuous showcases for their
                 creations and clients. The rue de la
                 Paix and the place Vendôme are home
                 to the biggest names in the jewellery
                 world. Louis Vuitton is soon to open its
                 first world outlet for upscale jewellery
                 here. The recently-refurbished Cartier
                 boutique is also an integral part of this
                 constantly-updated scene. So is Van
                 Cleef & Arpels, which on the occasion
                 of its one-hundredth anniversary
                 reopened its historic boutique with a state-of-the-art flagship store. The historic Swiss timepiece brand Breguet
                 has opened its largest store in the world here: 500 m² on two levels, a store on the ground floor and an exhibition
                 space on the first floor. Not forgetting Chanel Joaillerie, Dior Joaillerie, Boucheron, etc.

                 > Sublime luggage and trunks
                 What would become of our clothes, jewellery and perfume if we had no way of keeping them safe on our travels?
                 La Malle Bernard, on rue Hautefeuille in the 6th arrondissement, has been making bags and luggage since 1846.
                 From the “penderie” (“wardrobe”) trunk to the “diplomatique” suitcase, and the highly practical “cabine” trunk,
                 which tidies away easily under the couchette of a train or in the hold of a plane, the store offers everything you
                 need to travel in style and peace of mind. Equally prestigious, Goyard offers a sophisticated range of trunks with an
                 original touch that’s bound to delight even the most demanding of globetrotters, including a “backgammon” model
                 containing everything you could need for a game on the move, the “cocktail” for celebrations, and of course the
                 “nez” (“nose”) trunk for perfume experts ... Other renowned establishments have designed items for anyone who
                 feels that beauty makes the perfect travelling companion, such as La Maroquinerie Parisienne on rue Tronchet,
                 and Lancel and Louis Vuitton on the Champs-Élysées.
