Paris has long been known as the fashion capital of the world. The city is famous for its designers, fashion shows and numerous shops offering the latest trends. Shoppers can find some of the world’s most luxurious and unique clothes for sale at Paris. Yet, look beyond the established shops and well known designer names and you will find a whole hidden world of fashion teeming in Paris. Plus you may be able to score some great deals and uncover some stylish new clothes that you would have brushed by.
Jenny Bernheim, from WhoWhatWear recently shared some of her favorite off the beat areas to shop for in Paris. They include one of a kind shops such as GoYard Malletier, Azzedine Alaïa and Dries Van Noten. These shops contain clothes you literally won’t find anywhere else, but you will have to stray off the main road to find them.
Another kind of store that is worth checking out is the concept store. These are one stop Parisian stores that you can buy clothes, perfume, cologne, gifts and even a bite to eat. Examples of concept stores in Paris include Merci, The Broken Arm and L’Eclaireur.
Paris is also home to numerous indoor shopping areas. Some of these mall like shopping areas date back all the way to the 1800’s. Examples include Passage du Grand-Cerf and Passage Galerie Vivienne. These indoor, roof covered shopping areas are found in the corners of Parisian streets so you will have to do some serious hunting and walking to find them. They are well worth it however.
