#kaytips : paris couture
Paris is always a good idea, right? It’s breathtaking architecture, it’s light at 5pm before the sun sets, Le Marais, the incredibly good restaurants… the Paris at midnight (and I’m not saying this because Midnight in Paris is one of my favorite movie ever). We were in town for the Haute Couture fashion week with the team and to be honest it was one of my best trip ever.
Couture is way less stressful than prêt-à-porter, the shows are amazing as they celebrate craftsmanship and beauty. So many things happened in such a short stay! Some of our dearest friends were in town so we enjoyed some fun dinners and midnight getaways, we had an amazing stay at our home away from home: the Park Hyatt Place Vendôme, a perfect spot to relax after a crazy day, had several greatly productive meetings, I bought my first Céline bag on Avenue Montaigne (an electric blue Trapèze from the new collection), got the results of my finals when we were having lunch at Costes (I passed!!!) and above all, we were all so happy and had so much fun throughout the entire trip. I felt like it was the right time to share a little Paris guide, in a very couture style. So here we go!
WHERE TO EAT
I discover new places every time I visit Paris (and gain 3kgs at the same time). So here’s a bunch of my favorite ones: James and I agree on Miss Kô(51 Avenue George V), it’s super close from the Champs Elysées and this place is insane : very futuristic. They have the best crispy salmon ever and unique cocktails. Le Petit Palais(Avenue Winston Churchill), go there and order the figs and mozzarella for me. We also tried Saturne(17, rue Notre-Dame des Victoires) which is the perfect spot to share an evening with a couple of friends, the menu is a surprise! A very good one. La Société(4, Place St-Germain) is a little bit fancier, perfect for a date and very close to Café Flore. Our HQ this year was the Hotel Costes’ restaurant, they have the best tuna tartare! And of course, the best breakfast was at our hotel, Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme(5, rue de la Paix). Kristina was in heaven as they have the best gluten-free bread and I spent my mornings drinking their detox smoothies.
It’s not a surprise for anyone, spending time with Kristina means a macaron a day (or 10) so it’s always the hunt of the best ones in Paris. For me it’s definitely Pierre Marcolini(3, Rue Scribe) and they even have designer boxes so you can’t have better than that. Pierre Hermé (39, Avenue de L’Opéra) where the macarons have an original twist and different flavors such as olive or yoghurt, our favorite the chocolat/passion! And obviously, the king, Ladurée, is hard to beat. We can’t deny that their vanilla one beats anyone on the market. As well as the raspberry. And the pistachio. Yum.
RIDE IN STYLE
Last september during fashion week, we discovered a new app that literally changed our live and definitely eased our schedule. As we are always on the run, we usually reply to our emails in the car that bring us from a show to another, to a meeting, to the next event… CINQ-S have in-car wifi which is the best idea ever. You can order the car anytime in the day and the service is truly luxurious, so next time you’re in Paris don’t forget to download their app.
SHOP A LITTLE
In Paris you have to treat yourself, right? It’s one of my favorite cities to shop. For example Le Marais is full of little hidden gems for shopping. I never miss an occasion to swing by Colette(213, rue Saint Honoré) on Saint Honoré, they have the best beauty department. For a huge shopping session Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche(24, rue de Sèvres) or Gallerie Lafayette(40, bd Hausmann) and Avenue Montaigne are all pure magic. The Céline(53, Avenue Montaigne) and Saint Laurent stores are some of my favorites. It’s very hard to stop once you start!

Un peu en retard pour commenter cet article mais je viens juste de le lire! Je dois avouer que c'est comme d'habitude très bien écrit et illustré, et tous ces endroits me font rêver! Mais c'est aussi malheureusement ce qui me dérange, c'est seulement un rêve...Je suis une jeune parisienne de presque 19 ans et ce sont des endroits où je n'ai jamais mis un pied (bien que j'adorerais haha!). Je trouve ça triste de réduire Paris à des restaurants et magasins de luxe alors qu'il y a tellement de petits endroits beaucoup moins chers qui à mon sens, font tout autant le charme de cette magnifique ville. Je pense que cela exclut une partie de vos lecteurs, qui n'ont pas les moyens de faire du shopping au Bon Marché avec une pause chez Ladurée (je caricature un peu ;)). Les #Kaytips ont tendance, je trouve, à être trop exclusifs.
Néanmoins, je comprends aussi que comme vous n'êtes toujours que de passage, vous n'ayez pas eu le temps de tout découvrir! Je tenais juste à dire que Paris, ce n'est pas que le luxe même si ça en fait partie.
J'espère que mon avis ne sera pas mal pris, je reste une fidèle lectrice de Kayture, et j'admire toujours autant votre travail et tout ce que vous faites!
J'espère avoir l'occasion de vous rencontrer très bientôt à Paris, bonne continuation à tous!
Love Paris, everytime I come here, find something new.

Dainty & Chic
Good food, goof sightseeing and good shopping is all a trip needs for me!
This is a nice and nicely written article about the nice spots in Paris. But let's be realistic, it is totally cliché for a parisian insider !!.:-) I know the places you mention and I go shopping at the Bon Marché, my favourite fashion destination and la Grande Epicerie next door for food and wine shopping and tasting. There are many more restaurants though which deserve a visit and best of all, affordable;-)!!!.
Congrats on passing your exams!
hi ! my blog is pretty new but I was wondering if you could check it out? capri-rush.blogspot.mxhttp://capri-rush.blogspot.mx/
Je ne me lasse pas des Kaytributions de Fiona !http://helowisewithlove.com/
Même en tant que parisienne, je découvre de jolis lieux à découvrir ! Merci :)
Love the article!! But I have to say it - sorry... Please, think about eating tuna. It truely is a highly endangered species (as many fish are) and close to dying out completely...
Fiona is really a great writer! And one lucky girl - Paris has always been my dream since I read the three musketeers..ah (sigh)
I usually enjoy a lot the Kaytips but I am pretty disappointed with this one! Almost all the places you talk about are so famous I wouldn't say you really give us "tips", and furthermore they are very expensive. I live in Paris so I know that there is a lot more to discover than avenue Montaigne, le Bon Marché or Ladurée to discover, I think you could have chosen more interesting and unusual places.
Btw we don't write "Galleries Lafayette" but "Galeries Lafayette"!
Still a nice post, xx
paris est une ville changeante ! je l'ai vue se transformer , s'épanouir ,pendant quarante années de ma vie ! de la construction du centre Georges Pompidou ,de la tour Montparnasse ,de la Grande bibliothèque de France ou BNF, POPB paris bercy , ministère des Impôts ,doublement du pont de Bercy ,reconstruction de la Gare d'Austerlitz et de Lyon, musées de Paris Orsay , centre d'affaires Paris la Défense et j'en oublie !!!!!oui j'ai vu naitre une nouvelle vie pour la Capitale !!!!mais il ne faut jamais la quitter !!!on ne peut pas oublier tout cela !bravo fiona pour ces partages ............de ................cookies !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yes ! Merci Fiona pour ce post. En amoureuse inconditionnelle de Paris je vais bien prendre note de toutes ces adresses ! En particulier celles liées à la nourriture !! Et c'est évident pour moi, aucun macaron de bat celui à la vanille de chez Ladurée ! Prochaine visite je te tiendrai informée de si j'ai pu ou non tester tes recommandations.

Love Paris !
Bravo! Those are really good places to go!https://quintessenceparisienne.wordpress.com/
Anyone who travels to Paris should follow your advice. These are the places where real Parisians go.
Miss Ko is amazing and my husband proposed at the restaurant La Société!
Le Marais is indeed a great place for shopping!
Bisous from Paris!
Truly love this post! I travel to Paris at least once a year and I also tried the CINQ-S service! It's so handy! Have a lovely day ahead ;) xo Vivian
Merci pour ces KayTips Fiona ! Forcément, tous ces sites ne sont pas pour toutes les bourses, mais ce sera toujours joli d'y boire un café ou de regarder des vitrines. Paris, c'est aussi un état d'esprit à partager.
Keep on :)

This is an amazing post!http://eternallyundefined.blogspot.com.au/
So happy to hear that you passed your finals, congratulations!
I'm currently in my senior year at school.
I have to admit, when buying macarons I'll more than likely make my choice on the aesthetics of the box. I mean, you can never have too many macaron boxes.... right? That's probably not right, but who can resist designer ones? I'll add that to my must see/do in Paris list.
Thanks for sharing these tips!
This post will help me with my future endeavor! I love your posts like this! Im obsessed with your blog by the way!http://haileyheavens.wordpress.com
Love this post and your tips. I'll be going to Paris in less than two weeks :)
This all sounds so amazing, Fiona! I was in France about 4 1/2 years ago, but didn't go to Paris (we went to Monaco - so far from Paris) so this is a great and simple guide that's not overwhelming for me to file away on Pinterest. What a perfect trip to spend time admiring walking pieces of art, enjoy good food with friends and buying your first Celine. It sounds like you had a great time. Congratulations on passing your exams! I can't wait to see you show off your new bag too. Side note: I'd die for a pistachio macaron right about now, haha!http://withfaithandhappiness.com
This post makes me yearn for Paris. Thank you for letting us live vicariously through your adventures!

Nice post! tha's a very nice city
These are some very useful advices,especially the eating spots. My first time in Paris was kind of disappointing as I imagined Paris more pretty and more chic than it actually way. Maybe I need to return and visit other places in order to start loving it :)
And congrats on your Celine bag,you wont regret that bag ever. The quality is great and the look fabulous.Enjoy it :)
I am so beyond jealous of your trip! All of the pictures are absolutely lovely! And I love macaroons as well, but I mean, who doesn't?http://nomoreboringclothes.blogspot.com/
love this kaytips post! hopefully I go to Paris sometime soon!
Can't wait for my first trip to Paris in May <3
Thank you for that great post!
That Celine store is my fav! Love the restaurant recommendations, going to try a few of them:P

Paris is really a good travel idea. Beautiful article.
Luise | www.just-myself.com
This post is great but let's be realistic for a second. Everybody can't afford those places. Maybe next time you should do a post where you talk about nice restaurants that are less expensive or where to find high end stuff for less money (Zadig&Voltaire stock on rue du temple for instance). Anyway I live in Paris so I personally am fine with those luxury places that you show us since they are dreamy but for other people maybe it would be useful.http://fashionbackyard.blogspot.fr
I love your articles Fiona! always pleasure to read :)
Great and helpful tips! Visited Paris recently in November, and gotta say that, to me, nothing beats Avenue Montaigne. Could wander the street forever just admiring the display windows.
