Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Secreted down a narrow passage, behind a discreet iron door, Les Malfaitrice has something of the fairytale to it – a vibe that the kooky proprietors, Julie Yülle and Madame Zigouigoui, do nothing to dispel. Since September 2009, the pair have been converting yesterday's discarded clothes into today's must-have fashion item, in the process riding the wave of vintage mania currently sweeping the capital. It works like this: Yülle and Zigouigoui head to the flea markets to scout for raw material; this they bring back to their workshop-cum-boutique, where they proceed to snip, slice and sew until they've produced something beautiful. The racks of Les Malfaitrices are adorned with a technicolour array of velvet jackets, handbags, skirts, even vases – all emitting that benign glow of ethical manufacture. Just be warned that originality has a price, and your wallet may be dealt a heavy blow.
