A Shop­per’s Par­adise Re­plete with Cul­tural Of­fer­ings

Where Paris - - Shopping |Beauty -

Lo­cated in the heart of Paris in the lively and eclec­tic 13th ar­rondisse­ment or dis­trict, the Italie Deux shop­ping mall is the sec­ond most fre­quented shop­ping des­ti­na­tion in Paris and the Left Bank’s his­toric shop­ping cen­tre. Open seven days a week, it brings to­gether some 130 shops, a the­atre and a host of eater­ies. Inside you will find the Prin­temps depart­ment store, the Fnac, for leisure, en­ter­tain­ment and com­puter prod­ucts, Sephora, the beau­ti­ful beauty store, the toy store La Grande Récré and quin­tes­sen­tial French brands like La­coste.

And Italie Deux isn’t just a shop­ping cen­tre for it plays host to cul­tural of­fer­ings as well. Last year the 13ème Art opened its doors, a the­atre out­fit­ted with two per­for­mance halls, seat­ing 900 and 130 re­spec­tively and wel­com­ing a rich pro­gramme of di­verse shows for young and old alike, as well as a tele­vi­sion record­ing stu­dio. It is the first the­atre of this di­men­sion to open in the French cap­i­tal in 100 years and it is the first cul­tural cen­tre to be in­te­grated into a shop­ping mall in France. The 13th ar­rondisse­ment is a hot­bed of street art and within Italie Deux is a fresco by the in­ter­na­tion­ally cel­e­brated graf­fiti artist As­tro.

And through­out the en­tire month of De­cem­ber, vis­i­tors to Italie Deux can dis­cover Les Bou­tiques Vive La France, an ex­clu­sive and ephemeral space bring­ing to­gether iconic and emerg­ing brands that are guar­an­teed with the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion Orig­ine France Garantie, mean­ing their French ori­gin is guar­an­teed.
