Le Bon Marché is quite simply Paris’ most chic department store for everything from designer fashion to costume jewellery, lingerie and cosmetics. And just across the road, its food court is on par with London’s Harrods when it comes to range and presentation. You can expect to see locals, rather than tourists, pushing a fully stocked trolley here, however. For the business traveller who has forgotten to pack navy blue socks or for the summer sale seeker (the designer shoe sale is particularly impressive), this store offers a definitive edit of the best Paris has to offer.
The Left Bank’s 7th arrondissement lies just below the river Seine and is one of the most prestigious districts of Paris owing to its wealth of government buildings and residing dignitaries. It is also home to the city’s premier visitor attraction the Eiffel Tower.
