With its world-renowned couture houses, haute fashion districts, sprawling flea markets, and mile-long shopping streets, Paris has a well-earned reputation as a global shopping and fashion capital. Whether you're looking for the newest names in French design or a funky second-hand find, you're sure to find what you need in one of the city's many arrondissements, or neighborhoods.Triangle d'Or
The Triangle d'Or, or Golden Triangle, is the reason Paris leads the pack for high-fashion shopping. The Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V, and Rue Francois 1er form a triangle around famous fashion houses like Dior and Chanel. Think of the Triangle d'Or as the Parisian version of New York City's Fifth Avenue. Even if you're not in the market for designer wear, it's worth strolling through the neighborhood just to window shop (or lecher les vitrines, as they say in French). For more affordable upscale shopping, make your way out to the Champs-Elysees, where you'll find brands like Louis Vuitton sitting alongside household names like Sephora.
