SHOPPING FRENCH CAPITAL
he French capital is renowned for its style and being the world’s destination for shopping. Constantly adding to its already illustrious list of boutiques, Paris has welcomed four more boutiques that will update your home, beauty vanity and jewellery collection.
Dress your home in modern elegance thanks to the newly opened Christofle boutique on the chic Rue Saint-honoré. Just a few doors down from where the iconic Colette store once stood, the new boutique is an inviting space where you are drawn into an apartment-inspired space where the French house displays its savoir-faire in silverware. Limited edition pieces, the house’s signature Mood silverware set and colourful crystal ware are only some of the gorgeous creations waiting to be handpicked to add a French touch to your home.
Bringing together the two things that are dear to every lady’s heart, beauty and French pastries, the new 86 Champs boutique on the gorgeous Avenue des Champs-elysées brings the universe of L’occitane beauty and the world of pastry chef extraordinaire Pierre Hermé under one glorious roof designed by French designer Laura Gonzalez. Open daily, the 86 Champs invites you to shop for your beauty creams before or after enjoying a sinfully delicious Millefeuille or uniquely flavoured macarons including the chocolate and foie gras macaron. The boutique also boasts a coffee bar to appease coffee snobs visiting the capital.
Working with natural ingredients and made in France, Huygens beauty products have found a popular following with Parisians and due to its success the brand recently decided to open a second boutique. The new boutique offers shoppers the same product range and the opportunity to create their bespoke products using essential oils to suit every client’s preferences. With a lab onsite the products can be personalised quite quickly meaning shoppers can leave with their shower gel, body scrub or even their shampoo.
The City of Romance recently welcomed the second branch of Zeina Alliances where gentlemen can find the perfect engagement ring to ask their loved ones’ hand in marriage and it is also where couples can find their perfect wedding bands together to say I Do. And understanding how nervous some gentlemen may be about getting down on one knee the smart people at Zeina’s have included a fully-stocked bar in the boutique to help calm the nerves so while deciding on the cut, carat and colour clients can enjoy a glass of Champagne or perhaps vodka on the rocks.
