City Guide
Marina Nelson,

Step off the beaten track as Emma Cheevers gives us her personal insight into where to find the newest pop-up shops, the out-of-the-way boutiques and the best department stores.

Start your expedition in the Marais, where you’ll find an eclectic mix of shopping, food and vibrant culture.

For an unusual shopping experience, the Palais-Royal is a fashion insiders’ secret. This covered promenade is home to historical boutiques selling antiques and curiosities, alongside international names such as British designer Stella McCartney and American Marc Jacobs.

For classic Parisian labels take a trip to rue Saint-Honoré, where you’ll find leather trunk maker Moynat; classic French brands such as Cartier, Hermès, Louis Vuitton and Goyard can also all be found nearby.

Wherever you find yourself, you’re sure to discover unique shops when you step off the beaten track.
