4th arrondissement

Vintage Bar is pretty luxurious, in an area where clothes can usually be found at bargain prices. Once inside, though, it’s hard to imagine that the clothes have three-figure labels; it couldn’t feel further from a high-end hangout for moneyed fashionistas – more like Ali Baba’s cave. Trinkets clutter up the floor, and fur coats hanging from the ceiling casually brush your face as you walk by. A drinking den in its previous life, the shop has kept its beer handles – the rest of the bar now serves as a jewellery display, covered in rings which are probably the most affordable pieces in the place.

No H&M here, but Louboutin, Dior, Kenzo and the rest. Something for every taste, but not for every wallet – skirts start at around €200, €500 for a pair of the famous red-soled shoes. The great attraction here is that the boutique acts as a dépôt-vente ­– if you happen to have designer threads lying about you want to get rid of, they take them and sell them on, with a percentage of the price returning to you.
