I am going to France with my parents this summer...we will be in Paris for about 20 days...I have been a few times so I have seen alot of historical stuff.
Just wondering what yall knew about good places to shop? Does not matter the store, I would LOVE to know about all types of stores there....cheap, expensive(might just be for looking..still fun though!! ), trendy, classics, vintage...anything that yall know of!
Also if there are any places to eat you would recomend, neat places to go, anything dealing with fashion or just ANYTHING you would want to do again or see again...I would LOVE To about!!
try the Palais Royal and long fashionable rue Saint Honore where all the big shops are, including must see Colette, Helmut Lang, Galliano, lanvin, Hermes etc etc
the Marais is also a great fun area with lots of new boutiques and cafes
and also Montmartre , for all "Amelie Poulen" fans and not only,
one has the real feeling of old Parisian everyday life in Montmartre
Jardin de Tuileries is another suggestion. Palais de Tokyo as well. Shops....depends on your taste,really as there are loads of places to suit any niche in the world. I plan to visit Shine,Kokon To Zai,Maria Luisa(maybe Mixté,particularly)...and the mother of all them...Colette...if only just for the experience.
Btw,I'm going to be staying in the Marais district whilst there,myself,Faust & Lena.
