La Boutique de Louise

icon-location-pin Saint-Germain-des-Prés

A very girly accessories boutique, named for one of the owner's grandmothers. If cushions with prints of macaroons and cupcakes (€25-€42) are your thing, then you'll be in heaven. In a space that manages to be simultaneously modern and retro, designer jewellery (Anne Thomas, Poupée Rousse, Félicie Aussi) sits alongside trendy accessories.

Sophie sacs

icon-location-pin Rennes-Sèvres

Rammed with outlets, the Rue de Rennes was once the stomping ground of grumpy shoppers with blistered feet who had to elbow their way past the shopping-bag-bearing hordes. But this busy artery has since benefited from a pavement widening project which has almost doubled the pedestrian space. But even if it is now less crowded out on the street, it's impossible to say the same thing of the inside of Sophie Sacs.

Le Sept Cinq

icon-location-pin Saint-Georges

The brainchild of two business school students, Le Sept Cinq concept store is a showcase for the work of young Parisian designers whose materials and workshops are all locally based. Here you’ll find Season Paper notebooks, rings by Mademoiselle S, Ines de la Fressange candles, Bobbies boots and My Suelly bags. Men aren’t left out either, with things like Newstalk t-shirts and Toucan Bleu bow ties on offer.

Les Oiseaux

icon-location-pin Saint-Ambroise

Tucked away in busy Oberkampf, retro, chic and fun Les Oiseaux is full of jewellery and accessories that are a wonderful mix of material and technique – stained wooden necklaces adorned with macramé, enamelled porcelain brooches, a military jacket brightened up with embroidery, a dress made from a patchwork of handkerchiefs.

Paulie and Me

icon-location-pin Les Halles

Appropriately located in the former abode of chic 18th century courtesan Madame de Pompadour, the team behind Paulie and Me call their project an ‘incubation store’: a platform for up-and-coming designers and jewellers. Around 15 or so diverse collections of jewellery, leather, shoes and clothing are exhibited for periods of three to six months at a time, with often stunning items available for both men and women.
