The best bou­tiques, off the beaten-track

Bordeaux J'Adore - - ◆ —— Passing Fancy—— ◆ -

◆ Sceno 10

Tucked away in an el­e­gant 18th cen­tury ar­cade dis­play­ing gor­geous stucco mould­ings, this wom­enswear bea­con lures passers-by. Owner Cather­ine Colombes lives up to her phi­los­o­phy of ‘ac­ces­si­ble lux­ury’. Her clothes, shoes, scarves and jewellery are em­i­nently wear­able. They do a win­ning line in jeans and slacks - key brands in­clude Scotch & Soda, Reiko, Re­play and Ci­mar­ron.

◆ Pia Pia and Mon­sieur Pia Pia

Rue Notre Dame is the old antiques quar­ter of Bordeaux, many say the city’s most en­chant­ing street. As you saunter past the or­ganic gro­cer’s and bustling restau­rant ter­races you won't be able to re­sist pop­ping in to this el­e­gant bou­tique, and when you do, you’ll be richly re­warded. Pia Pia cham­pi­ons ca­sual and play­ful fem­i­nin­ity, stock­ing a gamut of well-loved brands such as French favourites Soeur and Po­mandère.

71 and 72, rue Notre-dame, 33000 Bordeaux
