What are some French brands that do stylish, reasonably-priced clothes?
I'm not talking Chanel but somewhere that does stylish, good quality basics that aren't too pricey, as my budget is more high street that haute couture! Am off to Paris next month and will have a bit of time to shop. I'm feeling v uninspired by the British high street at the moment...
There are some nice little independent boutiques which aren't expensive if you go somewhere a bit less smart. The Main Street in Montparnasse - think it's called General Leclerc - has some. Or did when I was there, (over ten years ago now)! It isn't my favourite area though. Also, there's a lovely market on Rue Mouffetard, but it's mainly food.
Monoprix, especially accessories. Galeries Lafayette's own brand for really good tees, sweaters, accessories. Burton is not a men's suit shop in France, they also sell womenswear, good for co-ordinates and colour.
