Colette

213 Rue St.-Honoré
Paris , France http://www.colette.fr/
33 1 42 86 95 90

With its always-surprising mix of art, high-tech gadgets, music, books, and individualistic curios, Colette has quite simply become the bellwether for all things stylish in the capital of style. At this likely spot for celebrity sightings—from models to Sienna Miller—and brimming with Parisian attitude, you might want to don your sunglasses and cultivate a distracted air before stepping inside. On the shelves, you’ll find rotating photo exhibits, designer T-shirts and sneakers, lace adhesive tape, Viktor & Rolf bags, Vitra clocks, Speedo swimsuits designed by Comme des Garçons, Pez candy dispensers, and yes, sunglasses. The lower level of the three-floor shop contains a dramatically lit restaurant with a water bar and a resident canine, Oscar. The fare, from soup and Caesar salads to fresh pasta and croque monsieurs, is surprisingly good and fairly priced for a place this chronically, achingly hip.

Insider Tip: The restaurant does not accept reservations, so if you’re hoping to eat, show up by 12:30 p.m.
