The area around the Carreau du Temple is filled with trendy cafés and concept stores, so this minimalist Scandinavian clothes shop has easily blended in. The Clothette stocks four Danish brands that specialise in men’s clothes and unisex accessories and that demonstrate strong environmental and ethical credentials.
Standout picks include eco-friendly cotton shirts from Knowledge Cotton Apparel, Arkk Copenhagen’s minimalist footwear and colourful socks from Democratique Socks (a cheap yet chic present, at €8 a pair). The biggest draw, however, is the elegant raincoat collection from Rains. Stocked in a whole range of hues, from muted to vibrant, the coats come in two different lengths and are a steal at just under €100.
