Kilo Shop - Le Marais
Denim shorts at €29 a kilo, scarves at €8 a kilo, leather jackets at €30 a kilo, bags at €69 a kilo, etc. Don’t panic: there are scales available to help you calculate the price of the items you’re interested in, while enjoying the novel sensation of playing shopkeeper!
Near the BHV Marais, the huge shop, spanning 500m2 and two storeys, is like a supermarket of secondhand clothes, jam-packed with hundreds and hundreds of items. Buy there is no danger of getting lost: here, everything is arranged with the utmost care, by category (trousers, jackets, skirts, shoes, sports clothes, combat trousers, Japanese kimonos, etc.) and even sub-classified by period (like the 1980s leather Perfectos), material (denim, fur, meshes, etc.) and colour (leopard print, checks, sequins, etc.).
The overall effect, as you stroll from rack to rack, is of a vast rainbow encompassing every fashion of recent decades. A true delight for fans of vintage apparel.
