“The concept store is dominating trendsetting…
pushing the boundaries and raising the bar across categories of fashion, home, cosmetics, gifts, and dining. The most dynamic and concentrated version of a ‘department store’, the concept store takes point of view to new heights, blending established brands with rising stars. The best feature – high and low market finds side by side that offer the customer a refreshing retail experience. Fashion rises up around concept stores!”

Featured labels include Isabel Marant, Edun, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Wantanabe and a wide range of denim designers – the overall look is retro but so ‘now’.”
“While in the neighborhood be sure to visit the Marais*, right around the corner from Merci – stops we suggest include Autour de Monde, COS, Swildens, Izrael Epicerie, Maje, The Collection, and Antoine & Lili. Great eateries include two cafes located within Merci, a number of brasseries on Place des Vosges, and also traditional falafel stands in this neighborhood that is steeped in Jewish culture…”
*Any day but Saturday – the Marais is closed Saturdays!
