Pierre Hermés is the Ferran Adria of the sweet world, the summum master pastry, the golden boy of the cakes. He is not only a wonderful cook but also a communication magician. The best way to discover his universe is visiting his small stores in Paris. Taste the famous " Infiniment Vanille" or the "Deux Mille Feuilles" in any of their different formats. It is said that you can buy at Rue Bonaparte and take away your sweets to the Cafe de la Mairie. The waiters turned a blind eye (sneaky :))
Finally a beautiful florist that understand the beauty & lightness of a real atlantic garden. So its expensive but there is real talent in the flowers and the are worth every single cent. Light & very fresh and a real treat, a treasure and good for the spirit !!! get a bunch for around €10 :))
One of the strangest and weirdest shops in Paris. And one of the most beautiful ones I have ever visited. This 170 years-old taxidermy store is just imposible to describe. You have to see it for sure !!
When Audrey Hepburn stated in "Breakfast at Tiffany´s" that nothing could happen in a place like Tiffany, she could have also refered to this adorable Parisian department store. It is one of these solid values of the shopping world that make you feel safe. Pay special attention to Beauty lobby, to the Shoe area and to the Younger Designers space. January and July sales are impressive.
Still thinking that Colette is the non plus ultra of the Paris stores? Let me tell you you are wrong. Merci takes the idea of a concept store to the extreme adding a new element: responsability. Therefore in Merci Merci you find an amazing space, great clothes and object and a piece of solidarity.
