Chic Shopping Paris
By Rebecca Perry Magniant
Photographs by Alison Harris
Not until Rebecca Magniant moved to Paris did she discover the concept of "les bonnes addresses," the personal list of favorite shops meticulously compiled and jealously guarded by every stylish Frenchwoman. When Magniant assembled her own, and some of her finds impressed the impossibly chic belle mère (mother-in-law), she knew she was on to something. She went on to found the premier Parisian shopping service and now, in Chic Shopping Paris, shares the crème de la crème—those places that every discerning shopper should know—including many boutiques that offer goods or services only available in Paris. She's also included websites to give a sneak peek and to help you plan an itinerary.
