Its name may be reminiscent of the most extravagant époque known to Pigalle, but in fact this boutique is all about Scandinavian sobriety: welcome to Cancan. Opened in the heart of SoPi in March 2009 this hip enclave offers a choice of designers from around the world, often exclusively, including Carin Wester, Raphaëlle H’Limi and Stine Goya. You’ll find silk dresses with embroidered necklines (€299), multi-coloured tailored coats (€459), stripy dresses (€299) printed blouses with metal studs (€115 euros)… an expensive wardrobe, but one you won’t find it anywhere else. ‘We follow at least a dozen designers each season. The idea was to propose a decisive and original wardrobe, peppered here and there with little details,’ says Lisa Muscinesi, the owner. It is, however, an address reserved for slender shoppers, as the vast majority of pieces don’t go above a size 40 (UK size 12).
