Saint-Ger­main-des-Prés II

LUXE City Guides - Paris - - Shopping Itineraries -

Al­righty, girls, get set and... Head up the lit­tle side street be­hind Café de Flore to sneak in a co­coa treat at Alain Du­casse's Le Chocolat 26 / 26 rue Saint-Benoît / 45 48 87 89. Turn back and right to blvd St-Ger­main, then cross at the light to Ital­ian cash­mere king Brunello Cucinelli on your left at #179 / 42 22 70 31, then di­rectly down the rue des Saints-Pères. Fall in love with #55 Ser­van Gax­otte's pre­cious princess neck­laces, then at #73 Sab­bia Rosa ( see Adv. Shop­ping) has hand­made lin­gerie that tit­il­lates celeb clients from Madge-onna to Ms. Moss. At the end of the block, go right to rue de Grenelle. Ul­ti­mate se­duc­tion awaits at #18 Carine Gil­son / 43 26 46 71; Moss at #22 / 42 22 01 43 / has CFMs by Valentino or Zanotti, then Iris at #28 / 42 22 89 81 / has the sea­son's foot-stomp­ing must-haves (Jacobs, Chloé, Proenza, etc.). Round off the out­fit across the street at #33 Em­manuelle Zys­man / 42 22 05 57 / with colour­ful bling, and yet more foot candy at #40 Chris­tian Louboutin / 42 22 33 07. A La Pe­tite Chaise at #36 / 42 22 13 35 / dates from 1680, as do its waiters, but does serve up a rather good old-fash lunchtime pot-au-feu, if you're pecky. Cross the street to scent heaven Frédéric Malle at #37 / 42 22 76 40 / fred­er­ic­malle. com / then cross blvd Ra­s­pail to tackle the next sec­tion of Grenelle. Op­tions: Carry on left into rue de Bel­lechasse and right onto rue de Varenne to find the fab Musée Rodin (see Mu­se­ums), or take a left to rue de Sèvres, right again, and on an­other block to fash and food nir­vana La Grande Épicerie at #38 (where the rue du Bac/rue de Beaune itin starts!).
