Fashion shops Shopping


Worth a visit alone to admire the interiors, young designers alongside high-end, edgy names.

Karl Lagerfeld Marais

Plenty of quirkiness to keep a visit to Karl’s concept shop interesting for everybody.

The Broken Arm

See what gets the young modern folks excited these days at this snazzy concept store in upper Marais.

El Ganso

Forget Ralph Lauren and Tommy – for that Euro-prepster look, make a beeline straight for Spanish label El Ganso.

Hermès Rive Gauche

The bespoke luxury goods maker moves into interiors and into a spectacular new Rive Gauche flagship. Custom-made, of course.

Dries Van Noten Men

To enter this temple of modern cool you will need to buzz. But don’t be shy if you want to make the dashing choice for the dandy about town.

Le Coq Sportif

This most Gallic of French sports outfitters has just opened a new space in the buzzing Montorgueil quartier. Truly deserves a ringing cock-a-doodle-doo - or cocorico as the French would crow.

Balenciaga Homme

As far as style statements go, few come more sophisticated and intelligent as those issued by the House of Balenciaga and their first men’s retail space reflects just that. Bring on Boylenciaga.

Ralph Lauren

The high priest of preppy has installed a swank new store in the heart of the Left Bank. And as ever at Ralph Lauren, it’s the same answer to the question ‘to be or not to be’. Let’s be equestrian!


The stores may look very budget Oxfam and feel like trailer park territory, but the clothes are genuine alright and the discounts attractive enough.

Surface to Air

The universe of Surface to Air stretches much further than print T-shirts and their Paris digs reflect this creative lab mentality.
