Paris is one of the fashion capitals of the world and has plenty to offer in terms of high-end retail delights.
However, shopping in Paris isn't all designer labels and catwalk chic. From perfumes to antique furniture, fine jewellery to gourmet shopping, Paris has it all, and with one of our flights you could be exploring everything the French capital has to offer in no time.
If you're seeking designer labels and real high-end fashion, Paris could be your ideal destination. The perfect starting point for exclusive shopping in Paris is the Champs-Elys'es, where you will find legendary designers such as Chanel and Dior. If a new Louis Vuitton handbag is out of your price range, you will find trendy yet cheaper global brands such as Zara on the Champs-Elys'es too.
The high-end shopping districts of Paris are spread out across the city. Another great place to seek some of the top names in world fashion is down Boulevard Haussmann. Parisian department stores tend to be grandiose and Galeries Lafayette and Printemps dominate this street. Here you will find everything from top designer collections, chic home design stores, gourmet food shopping and much more.
The hub of Parisian fashion is the Faubourg Saint-Honor' district, which is part of the Louvre-Tuileries neighbourhood and just a few minutes' walk from the Boulevard Haussmann. Here you will find prestigious names such as Versace, Hermes and Yves Saint Laurent, as well as quality cosmetics and perfumes.
Paris is a veritable delight for those who enjoy shopping in trendy boutiques and searching for antiques, with various areas of the city to explore.
The historic Marais quarter is fantastic for those with an eye for the eclectic. The streets Rue des Francs-Bourgeois, Place des Vosges, Rue de Turenne and Rue des Rosiers make up the Marais. If you're seeking up-and-coming designers, original jewellery items or intend to spend a day antiquing, the Marais is the place to be.
For a real taste of the city's past while you're shopping in Paris, try the Saint-Ouen flea market. Located in the north of Paris, this market dates back to the 19th century and is the main hub for antique dealers. The flea market (or march' aux puces) is held every Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and if you're seeking vintage fashion, antique furniture or truly unique items, you will not be disappointed.
