MariaLuisaMontThaborMixte.jpgSo now that you’ve had a week to check at L’Ecclaireur, I’ve got another must-visit-as-soon-as-possible store. Since 1988 Maria Luisa has been gathering a selection of the worlds best young and established designers and supplying them to the insatiable fashion forward Parisien elite. Stocking big names like Margiela, Owens, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Number (N)ine, Jil Sander, Demeulemeester and McQueen, lesser known talent is constantly scouted for the just-off-Honore store. The newly renovated men’s store is just a few doors down from the tapas hotspot, Ferdi as well as the establishment of Le Souffle. – Andrew Mukamal
