A must on the list is Merci in the Bastille. You need look no further to find a modern concept store that brings together a range of boutique fashion, furniture, and homewares brands in a considered way. A fresh herbal tea in the book-lined café is a memorable experience. House linen range of napery and bedding was a real highlight as was Isabel Marant’s latest Indian inspired Autumn/Winter collection.
Iconic French luxury brand Hermes delivered both style and simplicity in its 1 year old Flagship store. Built in a 1935 old swimming pool of 2,500 square meters and decorated by Denis Montel out of beautifully crafted furniture pieces encased in a timber lattice dome towering the entire three level store. We loved the Hermes signature wallpaper the graphics of which remind us of the origins of the brand. The subtle scent of the florist in the entry invites you to journey within. Exquisite.
Everything you can expect from Ralph and more. This former carriage house and stables were painstakingly renovated over a four-year period and has resulted in a truly unique space that is quintessentially Ralph Lauren. Whether shopping for the latest Ralph Lauren fashion, or simply enjoying a casual lunch or intimate dinner at their signature restaurant Ralph’s; this destination is a must. We loved the extensive interior fit out – imagine a stone spiral staircase leading to the timber paneling bathrooms, and an original restored lift whisking you up over 4 floors of fashion, fashion and more fashion….just imagine.
