This Marais concept stores plays elegantly with Parisian and French identity – the owners Yann and Yannick bring together stylists, designers and other contemporary artists inspired by the City of Light. But there are no tacky souvenirs for tourists – everything is Parisian chic, with a knowing wink. Macaroons show up in bracelets, space invaders (usually found decorating the walls of the capital’s buildings) adorn t-shirts, calf’s heads (tête de veau, which in French rhymes with Parigot – Parisian) are printed on brooches and badges (€8-€10). Plus offbeat and sometimes inspired accessories, clothes and found objects reimagined as, amongst others, as sweatshirts adored with leather feathers (€135-€165). Also, Kobja’s handbags and jewellery made out of taxidermy toads, snakes and other amphibians. Tempted by a genuine frog wallet?
