The Paris Winter Sales; embark on a spree
In Paris, the main luxury boutiques are concentrated on the Champs-Elysées (Louis Vuitton, Lancel, Chanel, Longchamp ...). However, don’t fear for your budget because the most beautiful avenue in the world has in recent years become increasingly egalitarian, with more affordable shops.
The Boulevard Haussmann is mainly occupied by department stores such as Printemps and Galeries Lafayette which, in addition to their ready-to-wear collections, offer a fine selection of tableware, delicatessen items and countless luxury brands.
On the Rue de Rivoli you’ll want to stop by the BHV, where you will find fashion goods as well as products for the home and decoration items.
But if it’s small shops that bring out the shopaholic in you, then you’ll be pleased to hear that the 2018 sales have plenty to offer in that area, too. The Marais district, popular with fashionable designers, is full of avant-garde boutiques, and in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, you can browse the shops of luxury brands and acclaimed designers.
Fashion Week, a media event for fashion
The fashion house Palomo Spain will kick off Men's Fashion Week, which runs from January 16th to 21st.
