"Bonjour, Paris take a deep breath and let yourself be seduced by the epicentre of fashion...
How do you make fashion in France? Paris teaches. The beautiful capital is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but it is also the centre of a fantastic offer of places not to be missed for shopping.
The Parisian way of life inspires films and novels and continues to conquer all those who have the opportunity to get to know it.
Known for being the capital of haute couture, Paris is rich in luxury shops, but also in small local boutiques, which include collections of traditional French berets, unique overcoats or classic striped blouses.
With various travel options to Paris it is increasingly easy to immerse yourself in the French way of life. Take advantage of TAP's offer and plan your next destination now.
The class of shops with tradition
The Avenue des Champs-Elysées is full of movement, as it brings together the most emblematic brands such as Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Hugo Boss, as well as other more accessible brands such as Mango, H&M, Zara and Sephora. On Avenue Montaigne and Rue Saint Honoré, the collections of luxury shops in sweeping facade buildings make hearts throb.
Christian Dior, Chanel, Gucci, Valentino and the iconic Charvet, a century-old tailoring house that has worn names like Charles de Gaulle and Winston Chruchill, are must-see places when it comes to shopping in Paris.
On the Rue Royale, you can find some of the other brands that gave rise to luxury masterpieces: Hèrmes, Prada and Saint-Laurent. All iconic, not to be missed and accessible to a few pockets.
Also on the shopping tour, we highlight the classic Galeries Lafayette and the Au Printemps department store, located on Boulevard Haussmann.
"Très Chic" in a cosmopolitan version
The Marais neighborhood is the ideal place to find eclectic and unusual products. The Satellite, known for its jewels, and the Diptyque, famous for its aromatic candles and perfumes, are two of the most popular shops in the French capital.
Also delighting Parisians are four of the most sought-after shops: Heimstone and Les Fées de Bengale, which specialise in clothing, the department store Le Bon Marché and the Mint & Lilies boutique, which stands out for its wide range of fashion and household products.
An unforgettable world of decoration
It's one of the places not to be missed in the city and has become a classic. With about 600 m2, the Empreintes brings together a unique selection of decorative products. Among dishes, furniture, mirrors and decorative pieces is difficult to choose.
At last break or two
If there is an ideal place to unwind among the busy shopping is the emblematic Angelina, a century-old tea house that was Coco Chanel's favourite.
Delight yourself with a traditional French croissant or éclair, while enjoying great hot chocolate. You should also try the house's ex-libris: the Mont-Blanc cake made with meringue, whipped cream and chestnut vermicelli.
Discover Carmen Ragosta, located on the Saint-Martin canal, which is the ideal place for lunch. Known for bringing together unique items of clothing and a pleasant vegan restaurant, it is one of the most sought after places for a break.
