Paris is home to many world-known and industry-leading fashion brands. The city’s streets look like a catwalk! It is also known as one of the most important fashion capitals in the whole world! As a result, you might guess that vintage shopping in Paris is a great shopping activity here. Accessories, scarfs, jackets, shoes, necklaces, nightgowns, pajamas: There is everything in vintage in case you are looking for! In order to upgrade your shopping experience, here is INSIDR’s selection of the best vintage clothing stores in Paris! You will go back in the time with all these shops, enjoy a quaint yet a modern ambiance, find high-quality brands from even 60’s and 70’s! Have fun looking at the colorful racks and a piece of fashion history in these wonderful stores!
La Textilerie is more than just a regular clothing store; it is where the modern fashion world’s magic happens. First of all, the concept of the store is quite complex. You can call here an atelier, a café, a clothing store or even a recycling point. At the atelier part of the store, you can take courses to learn about how to operate a sewing machine, sewing basics and repair your old clothes. On the other hand, there is another area where you can check out and buy textiles, even organic cotton or recycled ones where you can also grab a coffee in the corner. Lastly, there is a part called recycler-y, where you can shop the second hand, vintage items in good conditions for very reasonable prices to give them a second life.
In addition to those, things which don’t make it to the racks of the store are still used in workshops or in the atelier for other crafters for a project they are working on. It is definitely a magical place to be. You can see the community working together, learning together and plus you can give a second life to a forgotten and unused item here. If you want to attend the courses, workshop or seminars here, check their event calendar as they have many different events each week.
