Avenue Montaigne: Paris’ Most Fashionable Street

December 28, 2010

Fancy some glamour and high end shopping? Then look no further than Avenue Montaigne, one of the most renowned fashion streets in Paris. Though there are several other “fashion neighborhoods” around the city, none of these can rival with the avenue’s who’s who-list of prestigious designers and luxury brands.

Located between the Champs Elysees Avenue and the Seine River banks, in the golden triangle, and originally called the allée des Veuves (widows’ alley) because women in mourning gathered there, the street is now occupied by high fashion institutions such as Chanel, Nina Ricci, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Valentino, Emmanuel Ungaro, D&G, Ralph Lauren, and Giorgio Armani. These “maisons” rub shoulders with luxury accessory boutiques like Caron, a stylized perfume shop which displays a dozen monumental Baccarat urns filled with re-edited precious scents dating as far back as 1919, and sold nowhere else in the world.
