No contributor

One can hardly visit Paris without indulging in a little bit of shopping. Here, Whitewaller is sharing a list of not to miss stores to check out while you’re in the city for FIAC.

Le Bon Marché
Beyond Le Bon Marché’s striking facade, visitors can find an array of delightful surprises through its many brand offerings, special window displays, and restaurants. Originally founded in 1838, the large department store offers the newest selection of designer goods, as well as featured pieces with artists and exclusive editions. Presenting the very best in luxury for women’s and men’s apparel, beauty, home, books and stationery, children, and more, Le Bon Marché is a destination for both shopping and culture.

Frédéric Malle 4th arrondissement
Upon entering Frédéric Malle, guests are greeted with a unique, futuristic display—architectural and artistic plywood bookshelves line the space and fill its center. With these Jakob + MacFarlane–designed “hives,” shoppers can choose from the store’s sophisticated selection of perfumes.

Merci 3rd arrondissement
In 2009, Merci opened as a place for the best in fashion, design, household goods, and refreshment. In the multilevel space, visitors can find pleasant surprises—like new designers, tech gadgets, books, and bags—after enjoying a light bite at the library-like café.
