Shopping, Designer

Designer • Jacquemus

icon-location-pin 18e arrondissement

You don’t need frills and pleats to be dressed beautifully – Jaquemus’ clothes, made from simple cotton, linen and boiled wool, are proof of that. From his atelier in Montmartre, 22-year-old designer Simon Porte (Jacquemus was his mother's maiden name) creates minimalist jumpers, skirts, dresses, shirts and tops that make you look perfectly underdressed.

Designer • Spree

icon-location-pin Abbesses

Stylist Roberta Oprandi and artist Bruni Hadjadj decided to kill two birds with one stone at this boutique: offering a choice of designer pieces and creating a communal exhibition space for international artists. Hip brands and diffusion lines from major labels like Carven, Acne, MM6 and Marc by Marc Jacobs share the space with designer furniture and a range of artworks...

Florist • L'Atelier Floral

icon-location-pin Goutte d'Or

In the middle of the friendly and colourful Château Rouge area, this formidable florist deserves its title of ‘atelier floral’. In a state of perpetual evolution, the window display and interior are regularly renewed with great care and a rare sense of composition; it’s difficult not to be charmed by the bonsais or the rainbow of bouquets that ornate every square foot of the boutique...

Things to do

Handcrafts • Tienda Esquipulas

icon-location-pin Abbesses

Effigies of Frida Kahlo, wrestling masks, floral printed fabrics, woolen ponchos, Jesus and Mary fridge magnets, lucky skeleton charms and hand-painted ceramics from San Caterina Palopo. No, you’re not living a weird Latino dream, you’re in Tienda Esquipulas, a small boutique in the heart of Montmartre, dedicated to supporting Mexican and Guatemalan artisans...

Shopping, Markets and fairs

Market • Brocante des Abbesses

icon-location-pin Abbesses

With its idyllic shopping ambiance on the Montmartre hill, this second-hand market is a favourite haunt of Sunday brunchers making their lazy way around the neighbourhood. You’re more likely to run into artists and locals rather than tourists at this tiny but charming market, rummaging among old paintings and knick-knacks, lamps and...

Record store • Exodisc

icon-location-pin Mairie du 18e

You could spend hours in Exodisc on rue du Mont Cenis, a record shop run by ex-pat Larry, whose encyclopedic knowledge of rock music has been practically unrivalled in the city for the last 30 years. Amid the rows of records and CDs you’ll find everything from the Rolling Stones and Death in Vegas to underground groups like...

Record store • Le Rideau de Fer

icon-location-pin Montmartre

At the foot of the Sacré-Coeur, Le Rideau de Fer is a bit like the little brother of Plus de Bruit, with an equally generous price policy and a similar penchant for comic books to go with the records. You can easily do both places in an afternoon, starting with the racks at the Rideau with their large, well-curated selection of vinyl: jazz, blues, rock, electro, soundtracks and the rest...

Vintage • Guerrisol

icon-location-pin Batignolles

Roll your sleeves up and dig into Guerrisol’s never-ending racks of second-hand clothes. A lot of it is tat, but every so often (and often enough for Guerrisol to be the most popular shop of its kind in Paris) you find a gem. It’s particularly good for blokes in need of a suit with all sorts of styles and colours. And the ladies’ shoe section often has a wide selection. Just wash before you wear...

Vintage • Rose Bunker

icon-location-pin Abbesses

You don’t need a time machine to step back into the past – not when you’ve got Rose Bunker at your doorstep. This retro bric-a-brac shop is jam packed with formica tables, old dial phones, psychedelic lamps, flowery vases and a myriad of other objects from days gone by. As well as furniture, jewellery and knickknacks, there’s a recycled materials section and vintage clothes.
