Here’s some fun boutique buzz from the City of Light. Ines de la Fressange– the fashion icon whose likeness was used to create a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Republic— has opened her very first shop in Paris. It’s perfectly located for a Left Bank shopping excursion: 24 rue de Grenelle is situated between the Rue de Bac and St Germain metro stations.
The eponymous boutique is designed like a bazaar. As described by Architectural Digest, “long farm tables and dark wood shelves are filled with blue-and-white textiles, straw baskets, ceramics, and other odds and ends you might find at a stylish hardware store, all sourced from her favorite artisans and brands.”
The Financial Times “How to Spend It” column notes that the store’s highlight is the open atelier, “where de la Fressange and stylist Fleur Demery create limited-edition pieces, including dresses, such as the midnight-blue silk taffeta number (€8,500) she wore to hit the red carpet, as L’Oréal’s ambassador, at the recent Cannes Film Festival.”
Ines de la Fressange Paris, 24 rue de Grenelle, 75007, Paris. Tel: +33 (0)1-45-48-19-06. inesdelafressange.fr. Open Monday-Saturday from 11 am- 7 pm.
