L'eclaireur (Marais & Rue Herold) - for those without fear!
Maria Luisa - Rue Cambon
Spree - Montmatre
Onward - Bvd St Germain
Le Bon Marche - Rue de Bac
Vanessa Bruno - st Sulpice/Rue de Castiglione
Isabel Marant - a few places - Rue Charonne nr Bastille
Colette - St honore (more for people watching than shopping)
there are lots of other cool shops but best just to come upon them - that way you enjoy the surprise....
