☆ Fashion and Shopping ☆


It was not by chance that the department stores – a delight for fashion fiends!! –originated in Paris..

From interior decoration to accessories for pets, from hats to gardening kits, you will find everything you could wish for for yourself or to delight friends and family..

There are constantly new places and ways to buy – fair trade, artisanal, on Sunday, in the evening, with a personal coach and more..

The latest trends are boutique-art galleries, bookshop-tearooms, workshop-shops and flagships stores of brands which are flourishing from the ChampsÉlysées to rue de Rivoli.

Take advantage of duty-free

You can benefit from duty free shopping if you are not a European citizen, are over 15 years-old, and have made your purchases (€175 minimum) within the last three months..

To be reimbursed for the VAT (value added tax), ask for “Tax-free Shopping France” receipts in the tax-free tourist stores..

Have them stamped at customs and return the pink stamped copies within the three months in the pre-stamped envelope that you received when you paid for your purchase(s)..

Department stores

Beneath their Art Nouveau glass roofs, the boulevard Haussmann and Left Bank department stores have a legendary reputation..

Together with the department stores on rue de Rivoli and at the Madeleine, they are essential places for up-market shopping..

N.B.: at Christmas time their windows are decorated with magical mises en scènes.. A great success with the kids!!
