Fall has fallen upon Paris this past week and when the weather goes from sunny summer to rainy and cold in a matter of days, everyone needs a little pick-me-up! In honor of Paris Fashion Week, what could bring more joy than some retail therapy for some new fall fashions in Le Marais? Here is our exhaustive list of the best shops Le Marais has to offer!
Start with some rocker vintage T’s at Noir Kennedy (22 Rue du Roi de Sicile) before hitting up K. Jacques (16 rue Pavée) for some lovely yet slightly overpriced sandals that are the must-haves for your Fall getaway! Hop over one street to the sweet accessories boutique, Miguel Lobato (6 rue Malher), and pick up some heels and bags from this high-end selection of Balenciaga, Chloe, Martin Margiela, Jil Sander and more.
While you can find Sandro throughout Paris, their stock shop (26 Rue Sévigné) is the best place to get their bohemian chic looks at seriously hot prices. And if you haven’t discovered them already, the organic and eco-friendly Ekyog (23 Rue des Francs Bourgeois) sells delightful basics and perfectly French styles. Pop up the street a little further to L’Eclaireur (40 rue de Sevigne) for some edgy new styles and hard-to-find new designers.
Head back down to Francs Bourgeois and into Ted Baker (20 Rue des Francs Bourgeois) for some sophisticated British fashions for men and women and follow that up with Paris’ staple Comptoir des Cotonniers (33 rue des Francs-Bourgeois) where the ease and comfort of their wearable styles have built them quite a reputation on the Paris streets for women of all shapes, sizes and ages. Just down the street, Claudie Pierlot (30 Rue des Francs Bourgeois) will bring you some typically parisienne, flawlessly chic frocks. Across the street, you can’t miss the structured sleek styles of Barbara Bui (43 Rue des Francs Bourgeois).
If you are looking for some gifts, office goodies or some great winter knits, pop into Muji (47 Rue des Francs Bourgeois) before heading south to The Kooples (31 Rue des Rosiers) and continuing onto one of the hottest vintage spots in the Marais, Free P Star (8 rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie).
Just down the street, snag one of Alaïa’s perfectly proportioned “king of cling” dresses at Azzedine Alaïa (7 rue de Moussy) before shopping for some Swedish home accents at Fleux’ (39 & 52 rue Sainte Croix de la Bretonnerie).
Make your way back to Vieille du Temple and into rocker-glam favorite Maje (49 Rue Vieille du Temple) and try on some super trendy styles from Iro (53 Rue Vieille du Temple). Pick up some fragrances and bathroom luxuries from Fragonard (51 Rue des Francs Bourgeois) and don’t forget to snag some of Paris’ most famous ballet flats from Repetto (51 Rue des Francs Bourgeois).
Delve into the quirky and oriental flare of Manoush (75 Rue Vieille du Temple) and continue heading north to discover the exquisite vintage-style jewelry of Anna Rivka (104 Rue Vieille du Temple). Abou d’Abi Bazar (125 rue Vieille du Temple) shows off its up-to-the-moment styles in its asymmetrically designed boutique and just around the corner, you can’t miss retro-modern Shine (15 rue de Poitou), the great designers at L’Habilleur (44 rue de Poitou) or the street-smart young styles at Swildens (22 rue de Poitou).
Pop into Pring (29 rue Charlot) for some high-end glam-rock shoes from this Thai-American designer before heading just up the street to AB33 (33 rue Charlot) seriously feminine styles. Grab some Parisian-style gifts at Les Vignoles (7 rue Commines) and then dive into Paris’ favorite charity-based concept shop Merci (111 Boulevard Beaumarchais).
As you make your way back down, stop into another Paris fashion staple, Et Vous (17 rue de Sevigne) for some clothes cut to perfection and rifle through the designer styles at Odetta Vintage (76 rue des Tournelles). As you turn back towards the metro St. Paul, finish off your day (or week!) by snagging some to-die-for shoes at affordable prices from Garrice (30 Rue de Rivoli).
