Saint-Paul, the secret Marais

by Camille Girette - Translation by Cara Scouten, fashion & style specialist,
In partnership with Elle à Paris
Le Marais has a number of public parks and gardens springtime visitors shouldn't miss. Our favorite is Place des Vosges (originally named "Place Royale" during the time of Louis XIII and inaugurated in 1612). It is an absolute square, surrounded by perfectly symmetrical brick and stone apartment buildings sitting atop a colonnaded walkway.
Under the arches are some of Paris' chicest designer boutiques, art galleries, three-star restaurants and four-star hotels. Planted with well-pruned square-shaped trees, there are patches of lawns that only a few years ago were opened to the public for trespassing on -- sunbathers and picnickers quickly spread their blankets. Children play in the sandboxes and the harmony of the scene is entrancing.

A hidden garden worth taking a peep at are just behind the gates of the Musée Carnavalet at 16, rue des Francs Bourgeois. The museum is dedicated to the history of Paris and is formed of two 16th and 17th-century mansions around a perfect example of a formal French garden. It is designed to reflect the time of Madame de Sevigné, who was born there in 1626, and where she died in 1694. The true secret gardens of Le Marais lie behind the massive doors of the "Hôtels Particuliers" that the average visitor doesn't venture into.
Don't be afraid to peek in. Very often, the "digicode" allows entry during the day with the press of one button and what you will discover are quiet cobblestone courtyards and lovely gardens. Those who live in the converted apartments of these private mansions overlooking such serenity cannot help but to truly love living in Le Marais!


1 Aspic Basilic
This « cabinet de curiosités » encompasses the mineral, vegetable and animal worlds. The new collection uses garden vegetables and insect shells to create design objects and accessories. You can also discover shrimp life in an ecosphere (from 99 €).
2 Azag
All of Elle à Paris’ favorite brands are on rue François Miron. At Pierre Azagury’s shop, discover his own ceramic creations (vases for 17 €) as well as notebooks by Madame Mo, bags by Jack Gomme, and objects by Press Citron…not far away, Sentou and Happy Home also rank among the best design shops of the capital.
3 Cornershop
Dishware, home decoration, furniture…the selection is chic and beautiful. This shop promotes French and foreign designers who you won’t find anywhere else. For example, for 80 €, the rechargeable electric candles by Jean-Luc Le Deun.

4 Sensitive et Fils
The two children of Lethi Tran, creator of the brand Sensitive, have each opened a boutique. One at rue Faidherbe, and one here, at rue François Miron. Manufactured in Asia, the clothing follows clean lines. Mao jackets are 61 €; accessories, a line of childrenswear, as well as new and old furniture are also available.

5 La Tête Ailleurs
Ethnic decor and large windows, we rushed to try their Mediterranean dishes : lamb shoulder, polenta with rosemary sauce, red berry and caramel panna cotta. A very reasonable 30 € a la carte per person.

6 Harnn et Thann
Thai culture is found here in the two skincare lines. The Harnn line combines the benefits of rice oil and tropical plants. Thann is a more technical line but still made from vegetable products. All products contain no preservatives and are never tested on animals.


All the hip labels : Maje, Antik Batik, NoCollection…

Ségo Spa
The advantage of this new spa : modelage while being misted by essential oils (30 € for 45 minutes).

This store sells its own line of creations : rugs, jewelry, and bracelets made of natural grains.



7 Aux Comptoirs du chineur
Laurent only sells vintage items from the 50’s to the 80’s in a happily organized clutter : sunglasses (from 40€ to 80€), watches, records, boots, bags, telephones…the prices are from 2 € to 3200 € for an authentic 70’s « bubble chair » (a plastic egg suspended from the ceiling that you can swing in) and are based on purchase price and not on market value.

8 Analog collector
Real finds for new and used records. Specializing in classical music, the store stocks quite a lot of jazz and pop-rock as well. Prices vary from 1 € to 100 €. And for those who want to clean out their collection, you can also re-sell or exchange your old albums.

9 Galerie Brasilia
Re-issues of contemporary furniture by famous architect Oscar Niemeyer, superb and unique pieces made from exotic Zanine wood : this new space opened by a Brazilian passionate about designers from his own country is well worth the trip. But expect a price tag of 7000 € for a meridien by Niemeyer…or, settle for one of his lithographs.

10 Le Rouge-Gorge
The menu here changes every day. At lunchtime, a large plate (meat or fish with a vegetable and cheese) is only 10 €, entrées are from 14 € and appetizers are from 6 €. This little restaurant is also a wine celler with a great selection from the Corsican island île de Beauté.

11 Sultan
Jeremy bargain-hunts for fabrics and leathers from the 40’s to the 70’s and transforms them using dyes, detergents, or bleach. His men’s collection of shirts, sweaters, and coats are very elegant and he has also just launched a line of limited edition sweaters for women for 130 €.

The Sans-Arcidet collection paris was created by three sisters, Corinne, Myriam and Sylvie Sans-Arcidet. Their style expresses a very Parisian soul in a pretty ethnic look...raffia, cotton, leather, wool and denim are just some of the genuine fabrics used to create these special handmade collections. Famous French and foreign boutiques have already adopted their "ethno-chic" spirit. All samples are entirely handmade in the pure artisanal tradition.
Using knitting, embroidery, basketwork, canvas and high class leather, the Sans-Arcidet collection paris also offers a large variety of bags, pouches, hats and soon many other products. More than just a label, the Sans-Arcidet collection paris has founded a new "savoir-porter"!

Domino Shopping Effect

PARIS MARAIS SHOPPING EFFECTIt took a surprisingly long time to happen considering its proximity to the heart of the boutique-saturated Marais, but the “upper” Rue Vieille-du-Temple (between the Picasso Museum and the Cirque d’Hiver) has finally blossomed into a center for chic clothing shops and galleries specializing in design and contemporary art. On days when the galleries are holding openings, the street swarms with artsy types who are sometimes more colorful and interesting to look at than the artwork.

Here’s a door-to-door survey of the street’s retail topography, starting at the Cirque d’Hiver end. A detour on Rue de Poitou and Rue Charlot leads to more trendy shops and galleries.
