Head to the department stores of Paris and indulge in a shopping session to discover the elegance of French style. Although France has a world-wide reputation for know-how and creativity, it’s the city of light that offers visitors something that channels the charm of Parisian spirit. We take a look at four essential brands for your ultra-personalised shopping experience in Paris…

The exquisite private lounges of Bon Marché

The private lounges of Bon Marché overlook the iconic Hotel Lutetia and in these airy spaces bathed in light, visitors are immersed in an atmosphere that’s more like an elegant Parisian apartment. Decorated with exceptional artworks and designer furniture, each salon reflects its speciality for your tailor-made experience. In the "Grand Salon" a curvy 1950s blush-pink Curvato sofa is feminine and soothing. In the "Salon Aristide" recently updated by Compagnons, the mahogany panelling showcases the refinement of French know-how. At Bon Marché, technology adds to the invaluable and essential stylists’ advice to help you choose your ideal outfit: a mirrored screen stores photos and videos of your fittings. You can access the images and details with a personal code whenever you visit. Chic and ultra-personal, your own special style is assured.
