There is no better place to browse high-end boutiques than Paris. As one of the major fashion capitals in the world, the city is the spiritual home to some of the biggest names in the business. The boutiques are spread throughout the streets surrounding the Champs Elysées with the Triangle d’Or (Triangle of Gold) containing many of the most famous brands including Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Dior. Start at the sizable Louis Vuitton flagship store on the Champs Elysées before heading off the busy street to Avenue Georges V and Avenue Montaigne. If you are in Paris for shopping and shopping alone, then stay at the Plaza Athénée, which is located right in the center of the Haute Couture district on Avenue Montaigne. The hotel is deeply entwined with the fashion houses that surround it and can arrange a number of private experiences with your chosen boutique.
