NEW BEGINNINGS: The Paris retail scene is seeing a flurry of activity this fall.

On Thursday, Moncler will inaugurate its Paris flagship just steps from its previous home on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. The three-story boutique, designed by architecture studio Gilles & Boissier, will carry all the brand’s collections for men and women, in addition to accessories.

Children’s label Petit Bateau is hosting a pop-up store in the Marais district from Sept. 23 to Oct. 22 to celebrate the launch of the first collection for adults designed by its new artistic directors, Gildas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki of hip label Maison Kitsuné.

Danish brand By Malene Birger is making a big push into the French capital with the opening of its first freestanding store in Palais Royal, as well as a 460-square-foot corner at Galeries Lafayette’s flagship on Boulevard Haussmann.

Misericordia, the clothing line born out of the shantytowns of Lima, Peru, is also gaining a foothold in Paris with the opening of a bijou black-and-white boutique in the trendy Bastille area with a highly unusual feature: The changing room is a black oak 19th-century confessional.

Fans of Anne Fontaine’s signature white shirts can get a preview of the store she will open on New York’s Madison Avenue in November with her new boutique on Rue Saint-Honoré — both spaces are the work of interior designer Gabriel Kowalski.
