A hip, second-hand clothes store founded in the 1990s, Kiliwatch has transformed itself into a world-famous Parisian concept store. Today, you find exceptional vintage pieces along side clothes and accessories from well-known contemporary designers, and emerging labels at the forefront of fashion.
Temple to vintage chic
There is something for everyone in this huge, industrial yet relaxed space, in the heart of Paris’s Les Halles neighbourhood. Enjoy hunting down that rare find through the labyrinth of aisles, organised by theme. Sort through the leather jackets packed in alongside sneakers and checked shirts. The real star of the concept store however is denim, so much so that Kiliwatch has launched its own jeans line, with a young, contemporary style.
A mythic concept store
A true player on the fashion scene, Kiliwatch also aims to promote young talent by organising exhibitions and hosting pop-up stores that bring together fashion, art and music. Developed around specific themes, such as the kimono, sportswear or even the working classes, these events demonstrate the diversity of influences on contemporary fashion.
Savoir-faire and style have positioned this store as a permanent source of inspiration for some of Paris’s greatest couturiers. The proof? Jean-Paul Gaultier and Isabel Marant regularly stop by for inspiration.
