Running through the 1st and 8th arrondissements, the rue St Honoré is one of the mythical streets of fashion in Paris. Here you’ll find all the big names and more, and if you want to spend some serious money it’s a good place to do it! I prefer to window shop, the Hermes windows are an event every time they change, and you can also hang out in one of the most fashion forward shops in Paris – Colette at number 213.
One of the most interesting things I discovered was that Joan of Arc was injured here in 1429 whilst attempting to take the city of Paris with her army. It’s very hard to imagine nowadays, perhaps in this street more than some others. Today it’s definitely fashion that rules here.
