Le Bon Marché : spotter of unusual objects

Much more than just a great shop, Le Bon Marché is a Parisian icon, a place where one comes since160 years eyes closed, totally sure to find there up and coming designers, a pair or zany shoes, impeccable classics, the hat that will steal the show at a wedding, the perfect little black dress one will not see on the girl next door, a demonstration of exacting rarity.

But by what strange magic do the shelves showcasing blenders and kitchen robots manage to make us dream? Fashion hesitants will find the perfect Carven, decorating allergics start thinking design, anti-dream of a high tech helmet and kitchenet duds suddenly nab a cast-iron pot ! Quite simply because behind each display hides the talent scouts of each creation, picking up at the four corners of the globe the Rolls-Royce of products, the vision of real French luxury, the cult of know-how and not bling, in all categories…

Behind each category, it is possible to stick on a tag that is priceless when it comes to a true Parisienne: the « caution of good taste ». Suddenly the Left Bank touch is ours, this little pair of patent leather Repetto flats with motifs one finds nowhere else, a bow tie for an elegant dandy signed Monsieur Jean Yves, the author of the bow tie, incredibile low-boots in leather and lace signed Nicholas Kirkwood or the latest «Mossi» vase by Lalique in black crystal that flirts with a rock touch. In short, everything we love…

Great news for overbooked working-girls, lazy bones and twigs who don’t have time to go over to Bon Marché… Their ultra-trendy selection can also be made from your « home-sweet-home » on a rainy Sunday or an evening of doldrums. In the series Dark Romance: the Marc Jacobs biker boots, the divine blouse with lace sleeves signed Paul & Joe or a gold Imaï cuff… All iconic pieces that can be yours in just 3 little clicks: www.lebonmarche.com

PS: car fiends will really appreciate the valet parking.
