Design and fashion are 2 topics that the Grupo Regina Hoteles never forget, that’s why we have selected this interesting article about some options to make the best buys in Paris!
The areas of Abbesses and rue des Gardes have become a magnet for designers, offering a wide and original choice.Forget about quaint Nuns!
Montmartre is not only a picturesque basilica. The worldwide famous hill also welcomes boho Abbesses, and the upcoming area of Goutte-d’Or. Take a wise stroll into its best-kept secrets, and discover its workshops and concept-stores : you’ll find incredible outfits. Let’s start with one of the best boutiques : Spree , well tucked behind the Place des Abbesses, offers very original clothes, coupled with a selection of vintage furniture and a choice of accessories. A few steps away, you’ll find and her Emmanuelle Zysman eclectic jewellery. On the fashionable rue Houdon, numerous workshps will attract your curiosity, including Les Filles à l’Anis, for a girly look. Men aren’t forgotten at Omiz, displaying contemporary urbanwear for all genders.
If this is not enough, be brave and walk some more, down to the Goutte-d’Or area : the stroll will lead you from the Amélie Poulain side of Montmartre to the most cosmopolitan part of the city, fuelled with a wonderful energy. Between rue de la Goutte-d’or and rue Myrrha, you’ll find the rue des Gardes, also called « Fashion street » since 2002 and the opening of numerous workshops. Sakina M’Sa (at n°6) was one of the first to open. She has a great talent for women’s fashion. Dognin (at n°4) sells luxurious sadlery : two of its bags were bought by the famous Parisian fashion museum Galliera. Sylviane Nuffer (at n°6 bis) is dedicated to corsets. All the designers of this street offer high-quality and successful items : the rue des Gardes is a true laboratory of the latest Parisian trends.
Should you be able to afford a luxurious shopping or only willing to check the most beautiful window displays, Paris offers three areas dedicated to stylish fashion : the historical Faubourg-Saint-Honoré (where Paul Poiret had his couture house at the beginning of the XXth century), the adjoining Palais-Royal (where upmarket shops have opened recently), and Saint-Germain-des-Prés (which turned from a literary spot to a very desirable neighbourhood). Of course, start with the legendary Chanel couture house : it hasn’t moved from its original settings on rue Cambon. From there, you just have to walk on Faubourg-Saint-Honoré and rue Saint-Honoré : exclusive labels fight for your attention. The unique Colette (the first true Parisian concept-store, opened in the Nineties) is at 213 and was renovated this summer. A few steps away you will find the Palais-Royal, a luxury piazza dedicated to the very best of fashion : alongside the historical galleries, you’ll find Martin Margiela , Rick Owens, Marc Jacobs, and even the very Pope of vintage Didier Ludot (beware, it’s not a thrift-store, but more a museum-like boutique with fantastic displays and high prices).

Amongst the raw materials used, old style leather on the sofas, oak floors, marble at the
chimney, the industrial iron on some furniture, and other decoration elements stand out
