Fashionistas heading to Paris for a shopping spree, take note: Oyster.com has paired up with Lucky Magazine to tell you not only where to stay on your next trip, but where to shop. We’ve selected chic Parisian hotels to suit every style, and paired them up with some of Lucky’s favorite boutiques.
Where to go if you wear…
Elegant vintage pieces
Stay: Hotel Duc De Saint-Simon
If your closet is full of refined vintage finds, this historic hotel — where Lauren Bacall reportedly stays while in the city — is an elegant option. Rooms are decorated in rich fabrics and antique furniture (even the keys are antique), and include perks such as flat-screen TVs, large bathrooms (by European standards), and plush bathrobes.
Shop: Chez Sarah
Lucky Says… Upon arriving at Les Puces de Saint-Ouen (a must-hit, 17-acre, Saturday-to-Monday antiques and flea market), I zip straight to my friend Sarah Rozenbaum’s whimsical little stall of vintage treasures. Her collection (’30s feathered stoles, patterned A-line dresses from the ’50s) never ever disappoints. 27 rue Lecuyer (18th arr.), Saint-Ouen, 33-6-0801-8089, chezsarah.fr
Bejeweled jackets and glitzy bangles
Stay: Hotel Pershing Hall
You like to sparkle and shine – and so does the hip Hotel Pershing Hall, which features a trendy bar complete with pretty chandeliers, sexy lighting, and gilded accents.
Lucky Says… This accessories hot spot’s gilded display cases are laden with of-the-moment, everyday jewelry I want to wear right now, like bejeweled woven friendship bracelets, bow-shaped stud earrings, and stackable gold and colored-stone rings. I always leave with a sparkly little something. 104 rue Vieille du Temple (3rd arr.), hod-boutique.com, 33-9-5315-8334
Wood-soled clogs and embroidered dresses
Stay: Hidden Hotel
If your style is boho-chic, this effortlessly shabby-chic hotel — which incorporates handmade craftsmanship and natural materials that give it a contemporary and Zen-like vibe — will be right up your alley.
Shop: Isabel Marant
Lucky Says… Her name? Globally synonymous with “bohemian chic.” Her embroidered smock dresses and eclectic knits? Coveted by style arbiters worldwide. Still, there’s something about the contemporary, understated Saint-Germain outpost of Ms. Marant’s internationally beloved line that feels so distinctly French. 1 rue Jacob (6th arr.), 33-1-4326-0412, isabelmarant.tm.fr
Cozy knits and menswear-inspired pieces
Stay: Hotel Britannique
The 39-room Hotel Britannique is a charming, mid-range boutique property in the heart of Paris. It exudes a warm, homey feel with leather furniture and wood-paneled walls.
Shop: Journal Standard Luxe
Lucky Says… Bare nails as hooks, tree branch clothing racks and partially whitewashed brick walls perfectly mirror the rustic, lived-in feel of this Japanese import’s stock, including faded boyfriend jeans and muted striped tees plus boiled-wool cardigans from in-house line Roots. Jardinsdu Palais Royal, 10-12 Galerie de Montpensier (1st arr.), 33-1-4020-9083, journal-standard.jp
Edgy boutique finds
Stay: Hotel Apostrophe Rive Gauche
This cool spot is just a little off-beat, which is why we love it and why we think you will too. The boutique hotel has 16 artsy rooms that feature distinct themes — like the “Musique” room, which has a hand-painted musical mural on the wall.
Lucky Says… On a narrow passageway in the Sixth sits this just-under-the-radar boutique owned and operated by two talented friends named Delphine. Their exclusive designs (one creates edgy jewelry, the other slouchy leather totes and boots) are the shop’s main draw, and a well-tailored rack of simple Laurence Dolige and Hartford clothing rounds out the effortlessly cool mix. 5 rue de Conde (6th arr.), 33-1-4325-3795
