Hi ladies I know this is the Chanel Thread but is CHANEL a brand where you just have to go when in France to purchase a bag etc. before coming back home? Are there any other brands that we can't get here or styles of bags that is a must? :P

There's also LV, Celine etc. I would appreciate your thoughts.

Perhaps Goyard...

Also, when I was in Paris I bought perfume from small boutiques that don't carry their fragrance overseas. I thought that was a pretty unique gift (one you can only get there).

To add to the list of non-usual suspects, Perrin Paris. I die for their exotics.

They only have two boutiques in the U.S. (LA / BH and NY / the carlyle) but their flagship is in France. And other than their gloves, which is what made them famous in 1893, their bags are extremely well-made and well-priced.

They have this one rendition of the Hermes double sens in all ostrich and the leather is soft, smooshy and tdf. Love.

If you are not looking for Chanel or Hermes, Dior and LV are also great brands to buy in Paris. Have fun!

Hermes in my opinion...but buying any french designer in France is a good choice,it all depends of your style,financial situation etc...

Check out Moynat. Last summer, i had a bag personalized then picked it up in Paris during our holiday. Moynat's customer service is great. Check out the moynat thread.
