Jamin Puech

 68 rue Vieille du Temple Paris 3rd

Handbag designers Benoît Jamin and Isabelle Puech opened their first boutique in 1996 after designing bags for Chanel, Balmain and Karl Lagerfeld, and their bags quickly became hallmarks for the bobo—bourgeois bohemian—fashion set. The designers’ fanciful limited-edition bags are handmade in leather, raffia or embroidered fabric, with meticulous detailing and decoration in all-natural materials—wood, seeds, horn, bone, shells and beads. They’re fun, colorful and practical.

Avril Gau

 17 rue des Quatres Vents Paris 6th Métro: Odéon

Her new boutique in Saint Germain des Prés is the first dedicated to her own label of shoes, bags and gloves, and it’s earning rave reviews from Parisian fashion mavens. Her sleek pumps, sandals and ballerina flats in top-quality leather, reptile and lambskin are a welcome departure from currently ubiquitous platform stilettos.
