For a touch of luxury and beauty
Head to Guerlain, one of Paris’s oldest perfumers, which has been a fixture on the Champs-Elysées since 1914.
Explore two centuries of legendary fragrances and creations – L’Heure Bleue, Shalimar, Habit Rouge, Terracotta, Rouge G de Guerlain and more – in a majestic Belle Epoque listed building.
Just a stone’s throw from the Elysée Palace...
Fragrances, watches, tableware, legendary silk scarves, iconic bags … Hermès is a beacon of French luxury know-how and needs no introduction. Having started out manufacturing harnesses and saddles, Hermès remains a family business to this day, perpetuating a made in France tradition that draws admiration from the world over. The emblematic Kelly and Birkin bags are just two shining examples.
And no day in the Golden Triangle would be complete without a pilgrimage to Chanel, a temple of fashion and the quintessence of Parisian womanhood.
It was here, at 31 rue Cambon, a stone’s throw from Place Vendôme, that Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel founded her fashion house in 1918. Initially a hat store, this address became the epicentre of Chanel’s world and the place where she presented all her haute couture collections. Still today, it remains the epitome of elegance and luxury.
Less bustling and more understated than the Champs-Elysées
The Avenue Montaigne is the Mecca of Parisian chic and a prime location for high-end couture and leather goods brands.
Christian Dior, the inventor of the “New Look”, was one of the first to set up shop here after the Second World War, taking many luxury houses in his wake. In this private hotel, located at number 30 of the avenue, everything evokes the pomp and elegance of the great couturier. Both a boutique and a museum, let yourself be subjugated by the extreme refinement of the materials and the beauty of the decor.
A few metres away, the iconic LV monogram catches the eye. Louis Vuitton needs no introduction.
At 22 Avenue Montaigne, the international icon of luxury fashion offers a staggering range of top-notch leather goods, prêt-à-porter, fragrances and jewellery, as well as exceptional personalised service.
You can go home with a completely customised bag, suitcase or shoes, choosing the shape, materials and colours you want. This is the epitome of luxury!
At number 49
Kids are the focus at Bonpoint. The brand with the cherry logo is a pioneer of high-class prêt-à-porter for children and has been cultivating the charm of childhood for over 40 years.
The brand’s timeless classics – christening gowns, Victorian-style school uniforms and Liberty print dresses – sit alongside more urban collection dedicated to the pleasures of childhood. The epitome of luxury.
