The itinerary

You’ll meet your guide on the edge of Palais Royal, an 18th century Paris fashion epicenter, and explore the designer boutiques that gave Paris its renowned modish reputation. Think of these beautiful arcades as the first shopping center of modern Paris!

The itinerary then continues on rue Saint Honoré, la crème de la crème for elite travelers & shoppers. This is where many famous brands became established, and the place to be during fashion week. If you are not in the mood for all the extravagance, people watching at one of the many café terraces can be a great – and an affordable alternative!

Your expert fashionista will then take you to the iconic Place Vendôme, a symbol of luxury à la française since the 19th century. Become enlightened by the incredible carrier of some of the world's most famous avant-gardists geniuses who (re)invented fashion in the 19th Century. In this very square, you will see how French luxury craftsmen played a significant role in the modernization of art jewellery & accessories. Later on, Haute Couture designers & prestigious watchmakers took up shop at Vendôme.

You’ll end this fashionable experience around the corner, in a yet fabulous shopping enclave, with the story of the most avant-gardist self-made woman France has known, a lady called Coco Chanel.
