The Quartier Saint Germain des Prés is THE place for shopping. The key word here is luxury. The neighbourhood has become a byword for chic, with top designers like Yves-Saint-Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Christian Dior, Sonia Rykiel, Givenchy, Céline, Cartier, Armani, Versace, Guerlain, Louis Vuitton etc. vying for space. In addition to the luxury storefronts of the boutiques selling fashion and accessories, however, the many art galleries, antique dealers and antiquarian booksellers still preserve the spirit of the historic Saint Germain des Prés.
