Editorial Reviews

Review

"Paris Chic & Trendy: Designers' Studios, Hip Boutiques, Vintage Shops is another collection for shoppers who want to know what's hot and what's hip, and with a sense of style. You'll find items that you may not find in other cities in spite of the world becoming increasingly global." --BonjourParis

"Author Adrienne Ribes-Tiphaine, formerly a writer for French Vogue and now affiliated with Elle, takes a look at small studio-shops run by up-and-coming designers featuring only their work or that of friends, alongside a sophisticated edit of pieces from seasoned designers who supply French fashionistas. The pocket-sized guide is full of photos of shops and merchandise, from jewelry and lingerie to shoes, handbags, separates, sweater sets, stilettos, boots, trench coats and Little Black Dresses." -Ventura County Star

"Even if you aren't planning a Paris splurge soon, indulge in the fantasy with this charming little book." -Anne Fitzgerald, Boston Globe Travel Editor

"From the publishers behind Markets of Paris and Literary Paris (as well as many more gorgeous Francophile-friendly guides) comes Paris Chic & Trendy, a guide to up-and-coming designers' studios, hip boutiques, and vintage shops. Written by Adrienne Ribes-Tiphaine, a writer for French Vogue and Elle, and featuring stunning photography by Sandrine Alouf, this is one shopping guide to Paris that would ooze chic..." -Gridskipper

"Ribes-Tiphaine's pocket-size book is essential for armchair and real-world shoppers alike." -Vogue

"This hip travel-size guide lists the best designer studios, boutiques and vintage shops in the city." -Newsweek

“Pretty...practical and absolutely essential.” –Le Figaro

“A glance through Adrienne Ribes-Tiphaine’s colorful new pocket-size guidebook Paris Chic & Trendy is a whirl of colorful storefronts and close-ups of jackets, underwear and accessories she and Sandrine Alouf, her photographer, found worthy of note.” –France Today

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By M. Courtois on December 22, 2008
Format: Paperback
I was hoping for a complete shopping guide which would include the good old stand-by's like BHV, Hermes and Printemps.
This book as well as Chic Shopping Paris provides information on specialty boutiques but is limited to very few per district.
It's better to plan ahead than to rely on this book for all of the best shopping Paris has to offer.
