Paris Shop : The Cream of Vintage
Those who can’t get enough of famous name brands like Chanel and Hermès will absolutely love this incredible Saint-Germain-des-Prés spot, filled with vintage pieces from the 80s and 90s that are no longer made and are such a delight to rediscover.
You’ll find an impressive collection of Hermès handbags, including the legendary Birkin and Kelly – which will never go out of fashion – in mint condition.
When I visited, I had the pleasure of meeting Catherine b., owner of Les 3 Marches, a very exclusive shop, a charming and passionate woman whose eyes light up when she talks about her bags, their design, their leather, when they were made, the gorgeous patterns on Hermès scarves, the choice of colors, and the quality of the silk. A veritable encyclopedia who knows the stories behind these legendary Haute Couture Designer Brands like the back of her hand. No doubt, we’re dealing with a true connoisseur.
Careful though, this is not the place for bargains. These are unique and highly sought-after pieces, a paradise for collectors looking for rare jewels. And if you go next door, you’ll find clothes, jewellery, a ton of accessories, pretty Hermès bracelets offered in a large range of colors, suitcases, fabulous shoes and even an amazing Chanel bicycle. Nothing but luxury vintage as far as the eye can see.
