If you’re coming to Paris looking for the glitzy Parisian equivalent of the Rodeo Drives, Fifth Avenues and Sloane Streets of the world, turn back now, this is not the guide for you. But if you’re looking for unique, chic and affordable Parisian fashion boutiques set in charming local neighbourhoods where actual Parisians really shop, then you’ve come to the right place.
Oh and P.S. The areas are ordered by proximity to each other.
Hidden away behind bustling Bastille, at the beginning of Rue de Charonne, a wonderful shopping village of fashion boutiques has progressively emerged. Quirky independent shops share the sidewalk with well-loved French names such as Isabel Marant and Repetto, making it a very useful address for shopping alongside friends with varied budgets.
