Pierre Hermé
Galeries Lafayette, 40 Blvd. Haussmann, 9th
Parisians swear Pierre Hermé's macarons are the best in town, and we're inclined to agree.

The chocolates shouldn't be missed either, and neither should the croissants.
L’Eclaireur
26 Ave. Champs-Elysées, 8th
There are very few boutiques that fully embody an aesthetic, but L’Eclaireur does this perfectly—no small feat, considering there are seven very distinct shops scattered around the city, as well as a bar/restaurant that doubles as a shrine to Piero Fornasetti.

While the Hadidas have had every opportunity to rest on their laurels, the pace has been relentless ever since as they’ve continued to ferret out the world’s best new talent, in fashion, in jewelry, and in home goods.

Under the light cast by a strange and fantastic bird chandelier, you’ll find Fornasetti umbrella stands, chunky chain link bracelets from Mawi, cashmere travel wraps by Denis Colombe, and coated Saint Laurent skinny jeans. If time allows, their most recent project shouldn’t be missed, either: They’ve taken a space in Habitat 1964’s vintage village at…
