    Back in August last year (yes, this has been a long time coming ) I set out to see if I was missing out on great French e-shops / webshops

    While we have a number of threads on French style and French style vs this and that I had noticed that we didn't have a thread in Shop Till You Drop specifically on French Online Webshops.

    Seeing as there are so many great French labels - Isabel Marant, Vanessa Bruno, American Vintage, Maje, just to mention a few.. I couldn't help but wonder if the selection in the French webshops would be bigger, better and of course cheaper :p

    So I contacted a lot of French tFSpotters to ask them for advice seeing as I could only think of la Redoute :doh:

    Most of the time the feedback I got was

    'I never buy clothes online, so I can't help'

    ..maybe an indication that the French are simply too sensible to buy something without trying it first..?


    But I did get some urls ^_^

    http://www.monshowroom.com < I can personally recommend Mon Showroom (bought stuff from them twice) as the website offers the possibility of changing the language from French to English and their selection is rather huge (especially on American Vintage) :flower: and discount codes are fairly easy to come by.

    http://www.trendybazar.com
    http://lebazarparisien.com
    http://www.rushcollection.com
    http://www.sarenza.com (shoes)
    http://www.colette.fr <<< according to British Vogue their e-shop have been given an overhaul so that now, almost all the products sold in the store are available online.

    Great thread! I think Colette is very good, and would recommend it, but I'll have to have a look at some of these other ones.

    Judging by the country options when you try to set up an account with Place Des Tendences, they should ship to the following countries : Germany, Belgium, Holland, Italy, Spain and the UK :flower:

    Re Place de tendance.. I emailed them to find out if they ship to Denmark and got this reply :

    My french is sketchy ( Mariemaud help ?)..but as far as I can tell if you buy for more than 200€. they will ship outside of France..

    thats it Hanne :)
    but they are warning that if you are unsure of your size or fit of the pieces ordered shipping expenses might become high and not to the customers' advantage

    nope.. besides.. my french is so sketchy (read : non existant) that I'd get my blouse sent to Timbuktu rather than Denmark if I were to communicate with them.. :doh:
