This spot by Montparnasse used to have old Helmut Lang for way cheap, but that was in 2007-2010, not sure if they still do.

Going for a few days in January, any tips?

AirBNB is pretty good in Paris. You can also try VivaStreet and Appartager.com if you're looking for a longer sublets (1 month +).

I'm in Paris from Feb 27th to Mar 4th. Thanks for the awesome post!

Any place to look for previous collections or rare items by brands like Balmain, Givenchy, Balenciaga?

Is 2 weeks too long to spend by oneself in Paris?

Also, any tips on solo ski holidays? Really want to go to Tignes next week but can't find any dorms or single rooms (under 150usd a night)? Or which resort would you go to if you were someone who wants to ski easy blacks?

I stayed at a great apt (reasonably priced, great great location in the Marais/Pompidou) which I found on AirBnB.

If you are into fragrances at all, you must visit Jovoy by the Tuileries. Such a beautiful collection.

Val d'isere is a great challenging resort, easy access to a few valleys and everything up top is blacks + reds with some olympic stuff. Club Med would be ideal if you are going alone, expensive but everyone mixes and you meet great people easily drawback is the cost $$$

For skiing you can check "les menuires" it is on the "les 3 vallées" which is great, you can get room for 90€

any good club for a birthday? :ph34r:

Depend on what type of club you do want to go

Concrete?

Just been through their music and it's not really my kind ...

To please everyone i'd say somewhere where we can listen to indies (CC, Zedd, Xilent, Kill Paris, Skrillex, ...) and some more "mainstream" clubbing music, I don't know if it helps :ph34r:

yes for everything however

 

i would seriously consider checking off the pretty bland and expected stores around champs-elysees and rue de riviolli ASAP just to get it out of the way

check every random alleyway and read all the random signs pinned on the walls as usually stores are tucked away.

then go find l'eclaireur, go to the one on rue harrold and the one in 3rd Arr., the one near champs-elysees is OKAY but the one on harrod is truly exceptional

iirc its 10 rue harrold hidden behind a huge door you wont see it so check the door bell and ring them, then wait.

and ask them for reccomendations once your done and then go back the next day and continue wearing everything

then go visit all their reccomendations and ask for more at those spots etc

if you have time to burn get lost in Le Marasis

 

tbh there are heaps of flagship stores in paris (obviously) just type the names into google and check the stockists page, check for france-paris, write down the address, check the map, find the store

L'éclaireur is on rue Hérold not rue Harrold.

 

There's a store near French Trotters that carries tech brands, Stone Island also used to have a flagship that carried shadow project, dunno if still open. Second-hand or Discounted is better for women, la Piscine has some cool stuff and there's a good vintage shop in le Marais that carries old YSL, Chanel etc...

^^^ Look at the posts above you.

Can anyone explain how the sales work in Paris?

I'm arriving at the end of the month. I imagine most spring stuff will be picked over, but (if it works anything like it does in North America) that there will be some final reductions.

Sale periods are fixed although good clients may be invited to private sales first. They end on the 30 of july this summer so some stuff might be left...

 

Fashion brands also periodically hold sample sales, this is where the heavily discounted or old season stock can be found.

^ I'll be in paris from august 10-18. Is there really no hope for shopping during that time period? :(

 

I'm particularly concerned with the acne and rick owens flagship stores.

paris is one of my favorite cities in the world, such an amazing city with beautiful houses, cool people (even though most french people are rude to english speaking people), great food and nice stores.

just saw this over at supernews, http://superfuture.com/supernews/paris-the-fish-club-opening, looks good.

Yes, there is hope: you go to RO and Acne stores which are both at Palais-Royal, you find the items you want and you proceed to the register. They accept both cash and plastic...
