"Parisian chic" - there is nothing to add to this phrase. If you have not visited a single store in the capital of France, consider, went in vain.
The most chic boutiques, not only of French brands, are located in the Paris area, which they christened as the "golden triangle", that is, between the Champs Elysees, Montaigne Avenue and George Fifth Street. On the other side of the Champs-Elysées, on the famous Faubourg Saint-Honore, between Matignon Avenue and Royal Street, there is at least a "golden" area. Here the houses of leading legislators of world fashion are concentrated. Nevertheless, the largest Louis Vuitton store, decorated with giant suitcases with characteristic logos, is "registered" on the Champs Elysées. For 15 minutes, it's easy to spend a fortune on the Place Vendôme. Here, in the neighborhood of the legendary hotel "Ritz" and the bank of Rothschild, are Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels, Cartier.
Second-hand shops can be found on Boulevard Osman. Au Printemps and Galeries de Lafayette were built in the last century. It is impossible to determine which of them is the best: both goods and prices are almost the same. Like a layered cake filled with cream, so they are stuffed with all sorts of stuff. Only women's clothing takes several floors.
In many hotels on information desks, you easily find advertising coupons with a discount of 5%. And having on hand a card-key from the number, for example, in the hotel Westminster or another hotel of the extra class, you will receive additional discounts. The most interesting drain - La Vallee (about 80 stores) - is located in 20 minutes from Paris. Assortment - from Armani to Puma. Discounts - at least 30%.
