Meanwhile, near the Bastille, vertiginous heels come displayed on fashionable coffee-table tomes at Moss, 52 Rue Pierre Charon. The multibrand boutique stocks goodies by the likes of Giuseppe Zanotti, Nancy Gonzalez and Devi Kroell.

Finally, doggy lovers and keen picnickers can head to Goyard's new itsy-bitsy store, situated opposite its Rue Saint-Honoré flagship. It offers a range of monogrammed pooch-friendly accessories and leather picnic cases.

BEAUTY BOOM: Recently, a spate of stores selling fragrance, cosmetics and scented candles has opened in the City of Light.
