After Rue de Rivoli, Le Marais. I am now introducing you another great shopping spot in Paris and this spot is la Crême de la Crême of all exclusivities and luxury. You will be walking around Le Triangle d´Or.
When it comes to Paris fashion, the Triangle d’Or is where every woman dreams of shopping in Paris. Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V and Rue Francois 1er in the 8th arrondissement form this shopping mecca just across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower.
This is the heart of Paris’ Haute Couture shops and the finest fashion houses in the world, including Dior, Chanel, Ferragamo, Dolce e Gabbana, Prada, Valentino, Bulgari, Gucci and many more. The Grand Couturiers (major designers) of Paris are mostly clustered around the famous Avenue Montaigne. When you shop in the Triangle d’Or in Paris, there are so many flagship stores on this street that you will be overwhelmed with the Paris shopping possibilities.
Yves Saint Laurent made a monument of their flagship store in Paris, where one of Paris’ most influential designers established his headquarters. Go on your Paris shopping spree by stoping by at Bulgari where you’ll find their gorgeous jewelry on display. Shop at S.F. Dupont for the most prestigious writing instruments in the world.
Shopping in Paris for luxurious designer linens? Porthault Linens (Linge de Maison) is based here. Looking for that special perfume in Paris ? Caron’s shop, located in the Triangle D’Or of Paris, is a French institution for Parisian women.
If you get exhausted while shopping at Dior, Escada or Chanel on Paris´s most chic Avenue Montaigne, a good rest stop would be L´Avenue (one of my favorite spot). Decorated by none other then Paris´most famous Jacques Garcia. L´Avenue quickly become the place to see and be seen. You could stop by for a café, un verre de vin, or a full repas during dining hours. It´s strategically located at the corner of Avenue Montaigne and rue Francois.
Now that you had a glamorous break, you can continue your Paris Shopping excursion around the corner on Avenue George V where you can shop at Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Gianfranco Ferré, Givenchy, and Kenzo. Along Rue Francois 1er, enjoy shopping at Rochas, Courreges, and Balmain on this beautiful street.
Head toward the Champs Elysées in Paris to shop at trendy Zara and the last word in cosmetics, Sephora’s flagship store. You will pass the newly remodeled Louis Vuitton flagship store and won’t be able to resist a stop, even if it’s just to enjoy a look at their gorgeous luggage and bags.
For another elegant break during your Paris shopping spree in the Triangle d’Or, have a seat at the legendary Four Seasons, George V or the Plaza Athénée (famous for the last episode of Sex and the City) for a tea and their pastries to die for or a three-star meal!
Remember that if you aren’t ready for the price tag of an original Chanel suit, the Paris sales are in January and July and are often well worth a visit.
