In the perpetually changing upper Marais neighbourhood, this loft-like space bathed in light combines a modern design, new and second-hand books to leaf through, and wild plants — little moments of joy that gravitate around an exceptional central atrium devoted to fashion.
Clothes hang on rails like the immense dressing room of a Vogue editor, all by prominent designers like Paul Smith, Jérôme Dreyfuss, Isabelle Marant and Barbara Bui. On the vintage side, delightfully neglected pieces are piled up in giant trunks. But you’ll also find designer furniture, beautiful linen sheets in a rainbow of colours, a great selection of kitchen and homeware…. And the list goes on.
And to really knock out all the other concept-stores, Merci offers clothes donated by people - actresses, singers, models -. Yes, donated: at Merci, the profits from your purchases are donated to an endowment fund to help underprivileged children, particularly on the island of Madagascar. This solidarity approach is also supported by some of the great names in fashion and beauty: Annick Goutal, Stella Mc Cartney and Yves Saint Laurent**, who have given up their commercial margin. Thank you? Merci!
