It’s Paris Fashion Week and although Paris doesn’t have that much of specific True Fashion & Lifestyle on offer (yet!) we do have a few favourite addresses to shop & stop when in Paris, which we would love to share with you.
Paris is THE FASHION CAPITAL OF THE WORLD so of course the new and happening conceptstores stock more and more True fashion brands and lifestyle products. And hey if the fashion capital is doing it….it must be TRUE!
Centre Commercial is founded by the same owners of Paris based sustainable sneaker label VEJA and combines fashion with social commitment and artistic projects with environmental concerns. Centre Commercial offers labels made in France, Great Britain and Denmark and houses second-hand bicycles, vintage furniture and art works. The shop is located near Canal St. Martin, great for strolling along on summer evenings and lots of nice little cafes and restaurants in the area.
In rue des petits carreaux you’ll find this new kid on the block called La Garçonnière. And yes! This is a shop for gentlemen only. La Garçonnière stocks our favourite sneaker brand Veja and is the place to find a unique gift with a story for the important men in your life. The staff is super friendly and knows the background story of any product you touch in this beautiful concept store. This is a great area for having a nice lunch and some good people watching as well!
The pretty and spacious concept store Archive 18-20 opened it’s doors last in year in Le Marais. You’ll find the slightly hidden entrance in Rue des Archives, between Centre Pompidou and Place des Vosges. This shop offers fashion, art, music, food and houses a nice in store cafe.
Soulkitchen feels like a home away from home and is located in the surroundings of the Sacre Coeur. We like to work here and visit this lovely cafe to enjoy some good organic and homemade food.
