Left-Bank Glamour Near Le Bon Marché:
Suite 114 is a relative newcomer to the Paris concept boutique
scene. It's degrees less pretentious than Colette
, but offers the same attention to promising new designers and fresh ideas in fashion. Price tags at Suite 114 are too steep for most of us, but going here for a little inspiration can still be worth the trek to a quiet corner of west Paris, just around the corner from the legendary Bon Marché department store
. Unlike its hipster concept store counterparts on the right bank, Suite 114 maintains an image of subdued, old-fashioned glamour, in the tradition of the very chic rive gauche
