A traditional haveli that was converted into a boutique with white washed walls, old furniture and crystal chandeliers, Les Parisiennes is the perfect destination to indulge in your taste for vintage. It’s a charming little shop that is packed rack to rack with classy clothing and cases of costume jewellery and accessories glittering under soft spotlights. Run by two Parisians, Lucie Salaun and Catherine Barbier, who source their material from second- hand vendors, the duo reinvent these pieces which focus on fashion trends from the 1960s to the 1980s. While sifting through their vintage treasure, you will find a unique range of 1940s swing dresses, sling leather bags from the 70s, bright plastic butterfly brooches and silver pendants— all quite chic and mostly affordable. “It’s a place for people who don’t rush through life,” says Salaun. And that is exactly the spirit of the shop— one is encouraged to enjoy the vintage hunt along with wine tasting sessions, art exhibitions and even French classic films that are screened here from time to time.
