Parisian fashionistas are jubilant: fashion week continues with a slew of pop up stores all over Paris to attack young designers. Joy ! What are the novelties to discover before all the best of the sap takes hold?
The most anticipated: Skims at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann
We no longer present Skims , the brand of lingerie, shapewear and loungewear highly comfortable, inclusive and so fitting from Kim Kardashian , suitable for all body types and capable of lifting the buttocks, raising the chest or flattening the small belly to be gaunted like Kim under a tight dress.
Her bodysuits (€ 73), bras (€ 38), panties, thongs and fluffy shorts (€ 68) will be distributed for the first time in France at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann , where the event is celebrated with a pop up curvaceous barrel and nude tones for which the brand is famous. Phew: even after the end of the pop-up, the collection will find its final place on the 2nd floor of the department store.
Until October 5 on the ground floor of the department store then on the lingerie floor, located on the 2nd floor of Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann at 40 boulevard Haussmann, Paris 9th and from now on gallerieslafayette.com
The most couture: Prada à la Samaritaine
Key place of fashion week, the Samaritaine is currently hosting the most desirable pop-up couture, namely a digest of the best of the new Prada collection, in a futuristic decor by Rem Koolhaas and AMO all in neon purple, orange and turquoise , inspired by the Prada Fall / Winter 2021 show.
Here we catch a legendary Cléo bag available in glitter, jacquard knit (passion) or smooth leather, we try on an oversized pink Barbie bomber , we dare the printed pants and we invest (finally) in one of these XXL headbands with rhinestones spotted on the most cutting-edge fashionistas.
Until October 30 at la Samaritaine , 9 rue de la Monnaie, Paris 1er
The “youngest designers”: Smukke
Incubator of new designers, Smukke welcomes young fashion and decoration instabrands in a nice space not far from the Bon Marché. What do they have in common? A certain idea of the green commitment.
We find the high-quality Be Amis shoes (boots 240 €), women's suits in upcycled My Tailor Is Joh fabrics, tie-dye tote bags and Atelier Fantôme gypset jewelry, so stylish and made in Paris Atelier Farny bags (Coco model € 430), Lamaro upcycled leather pop bags (€ 180 per phone bag) or - among others - the Evesome tweed and cashmere wardrobe.

The greenest: 1.618 Paris
Alert: the 1.618 Paris agency presents its new pop-up store on the theme of the handsome manager on the 6th floor of Printemps Haussmann . On the program: a selection of committed luxury brands, approved by a panel of anti-greenwashing experts.
Among the fashion nuggets: customizable jewelry from the house of Dangleterre , the feminine and timeless wardrobe by Valentine Gauthier , the sublime shoes by Nomasei , the elegant hats and leather goods from Lastelier (190 €) or the soft and colorful mohair sweaters from Katia Sanchez (€ 220) among a plethora of other super stylish labels. Or the art of infiltrating the avant-garde of fashion in full fashion week.

The most “shoe lovers”: Nomasei
2 years after their very first pop-up store, the Nomasei girls repeat their fashion rendezvous to meet shoe addicts in the Marais . The opportunity to discover and try in real life the sublime models of the winter collection, and in particular the starlet of the moment: the Whisper second skin thigh-high boot (€ 699) as sexy as any comfort.
There is also a grocery store selling Italian products made in Montopoli , the town where Paule and Marine (both formerly from Chloé ) have their wonders produced, as well as a shoe polishing and maintenance workshop with the luxury shoemaker Galoche & Patin .
From October 7 to 13 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., 12 rue des Filles du Calvaire, Paris 3rd
The most rock: Diesel at the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées
It's hard to be more desirable than the denim pieces from Diesel, which is making a cool comeback in the hands of Glenn Martens at DA (also at the helm of Y / Project). The Belgian designer presents his Avant-Première collection on the ground floor of the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées in a rock and industrial atmosphere all red with giant characters and a resolutely Insta-friendly immersive atmosphere.
Padded, worn, vintage, faded, sewn by hand ... Jeans are obviously included in the selection which will present the most avant-garde looks of the house, halfway between the punk aesthetic and the desire to gallop in horse in the grounds of an old-fashioned ranch. It remains to find the cowboy boots to go with it.
From September 20 to October 9 at Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées , 60 avenue des Champs-Élysées, Paris 8th
