Looking for fashion in all the “right” places when visiting Paris?! Then your first stop needs to be the Rue du Faubourg Saint- Honore. Home to nearly every major fashion house in the world, this is Global eye candy at it’s best.
For years, this narrow, bustling street has been dedicated to fashion and luxury goods. Find Ferragamo, Lanvin, Hermes, Prada and Gucci, side by side, and clamoring for your euros. This season, fringe seems to be all the rage in Prada http://www.prada.com , and Hermes http://www.hermes.com boasts a white, sand scene, complete with faux sand castles and silver crabs.
If you are planning on doing more than window shopping, it’s helpful to dress the part, so leave those trainers and fanny packs at home!
Easy access from Metro Line 8, stop Madeleine – fortify yourself at Laduree http://www.laduree.com with coffee and sweets before shopping, or Metro Line 1 or 8, stop Concorde. The Hotel Le Bristol http://www.grandluxuryhotels.com also makes for a refined stop for tea or champagne as well if you need to rest those aching arms loaded with shopping bags!
