The trailblazer of the Rue Étienne-Marcel revival is filled with hoodies, casual shirts and washed-out jeans. Brands such as Gas, Edwin and Pepe Jeans accompany pricey, good-condition vintage garb. Kiliwatch is also a prime spot for shoes by labels like Puma, Fred Perry and INK, designer sunglasses and even watches. In short you could switch up your entire look under this one (rather hip) roof.
If ever there was a time to replenish your clothes racks, it’s now. You’re in Paris, home of Dior’s New Look, after all, and we reckon you should get cracking on your own personal style revolution before you leave. The department stores and fashion boutiques of the Left Bank may be a touch out of your price range, so your best bet is the host of affordable vintage clothes emporiums sprinkled around Montmartre, the Marais and elsewhere. You could spend hours rummaging the racks, rails, baskets and piles of clothes and accessories that fill the following brilliant vintage shops in Paris. So splash the euros and spruce yourself up – you won’t regret it.
