PARIS - Dries Van Noten boutique

At the Dries Van Noten Boutique. The Louvre across the Seine is reflected in the windows of the new Dries Van Noten boutique at 7 Quai Malaquais. At last, we have a boutique with a personality. It looks more like a Parisian apartment than a clothes store; it is luxuriously decorated with mixed eclectic pieces from different periods. Formerly a bookstore, the boutique, in the heart of the rive gauche, is surrounded by antique dealers and art galleries and, if you don’t look too closely, could easily pass as an antiquaire.”I wanted to preserve the identity and the history of this18th Century building, of the quartier and the surrounding environment.’ Van Noten explains. Put it on your “to do list” on your next trip to Paris.
