The most beautiful luxury shops in Paris

For those who go on shopping sprees or simply like to go window-shopping, luxury and haute couture will meet all your expectations.

Luxury boutiques have taken over various neighbourhoods of the French capital. Within the famous golden triangle, Avenue Montaigne welcomes designer houses among the most prestigious in the world (Chanel, Dior, Nina Ricci…). Several luxury brands have taken hold two steps away, on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées, like Louis Vuitton and perfumer Guerlain. The shops are usually huge, sometimes over several floors, and offer a large selection of products.
For a quieter shopping break, the fancy Place Vendôme is specialised in watchmaking and goldsmithery. There, you will have the opportunity to gaze at dreamlike watches and jewels, Cartier's and Van Cleef & Arpels' for instance.
Finally, go out of your way to the Saint-Lazare neighbourhood (with the Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores) where all of French luxury has been gathered. During Christmas season, visitors from around the world rub shoulders to have a look at the shop windows. Designed by the best creators, they display animated fantasy worlds.
