I like the IDEA of Zadig & Voltaire but somehow when I try it on it just bores me.... I have a couple of Z&V things. However, it doesn't bore me as much as juicy couture trackies & vest tops. Its very gamine & the sizing is super small. Z&V has Superb bags actually. washed leather slouchy bags - and good prices.

Isn't it the antithesis of ' vintage ' shopping ?
I can tell it's the 'Eats, shoots and leaves' crowd in here...

Is Galerie Lafayette in Paris swisher than their other stores? Their Berlin store is mind-numbingly conservative the last time I dropped in...

The Boulevard Haussmann store is the BEST - full of designer boutiques and the hottest labels .

Doesn't shoot himself , but books a £9 Ryanair flight to Paris .

Personally I find Galleries Lafayette boring and the layout messy. I much prefer Au Bon Marché. For a collection of designer labels all under one roof and in one floor, check the second floor of Galleries Au Printemps (next block to Lafayette). You have a display of mini-stands with the best jewellers and fashion designers, mostly showing accessories. It saves time!

I so agree. I've been to Lafayette but I found it extremely messy, and there's WAY too much heating so you can barely find the time to look at all the designers, you just melt instead.

Whats the APC surplus store like? I'll probably be visiting their mens shop because the prices are good anyway, but I was wondering what sort of things they have in the surplus store, and what the prices are like?

For Parisians only!!
Which is your cult-shop? The one you go at least every Saturday?The one you know that will always satisfy your most complex fashion-dream?
No matter if it already ruined you, give us your secret-fashion-supplier:

For me, it is definetely the vintage Mecca: Reciproque, at the 16th arrondissement. You find all that you need if you're more an individual than a trend-follower.

Not exactly a shop, but I do like one of the vintage accessories sellers at Clignancourt. She always tells a fascinating story and I've bought some interesting things from her. I especially love the black & white pics of her when she was young and glamorous! Now she's old and just dreams of glamour with lots of make-up and crazy hair, haha. Worth a trip just to spend some time in her company. There was a two men fighting over a diamante Chanel brooch last time I was there the man with the big moustache in the orange jumpsuit won


Do you know if Shine on Rue de Charonne at the 11th still exists? Used to be good when it opened, but not sure if it's even still there anymore

I've heard of it,but no idea because I am not in Paris all the time. Was it about vintage, wasn't it??
