Hi everybody !
Today we will tell you our last visit to the fashion capital, the matchless Paris.
It was a ash tour in two busy but amazing days.
We landed in Paris early in the morning so before starting the day, we made the obligatory stop at Au Petit Versailles Du Marais. A typical French pastry found in the Marais district.
Marais is the best district in Paris to discover a lot of vintage shops. If you like to collect vintage "treasures", look for original objects to decorate your home and know the most authentic side of the French capital, you will surely enjoy our second stop; the best markets and vintage shops in the city.
The first market was Marché aux Puces, this market is one of the most famous ea markets in the world; Most people think that it is a single market, but in reality there are 15 markets grouped under this name.
In recent years it has been invaded by the typical souvenir stalls and imitation garments, but if you keep walking a little further from where you start and you dare to enter the narrow streets that surround it you will discover a universe of antique furnitures, posters, plates, pictures and objects of the most varied: from clothes to books or classic toys. For us it continues to be one of the best markets in Paris: it is worth reserving a morning to go through it without hurry and look for some little gem.
After lunch, we address (without leaving the Marais neighbourhood) to two wonderful vintage shops.
Free 'P' Star was the first. This shop is a real tailor of all kinds of vintage items. From 70s dresses to denim vests, to eighties t-shirts, bulging jumpers and a mountain of leather belts and matching handbags from all eras. Finding a unique wardrobe background piece will not be difficult in this Paris boutique.
The second shop was Kilo-Shop. Buying in the second-hand shops Kilo-Shop is something different from the usual, because here the clothes are sold by weight. But the concept is simple: enter, try what you like, weigh the garments when going through the box, pay and go out of the store with a retro look at an unbeatable price. There are clothes, shoes and accessories, all used but in good condition. For us it is a great source of inspiration.
After seven in the afternoon, we allowed ourselves to do some sightseeing and went to visit the Eiffel Tower and stroll along the Seine. We had dinner and went to bed early because the next day we expected a lot of work.
The next day we got up very early and went to Premiere Visión, one of the best-known fashion fairs in Paris. For 3 days, 2 times a year, at Paris-Nord Villepinte, the six major industries supplying materials and services to the global fashion industry (including : Yarns, Fabrics , Leather , Designs , Accessories, Manufacturing) come together in Paris.
The fair consists of 6 pavilions full of suppliers from around the world. This fair is ideal to meet new trends, new suppliers, new materials and a host of new ideas to introduce into the collections.
This was our short but intense trip to Paris. We hope you enjoyed the post and it has helped you to discover a little more about us. See you soon!
