Ready-to-wear and designer boutiques: Saint-Germain, or in other words, the essence of Parisian shopping.

For a shopping spree in the heart of Paris, not-to-be-missed districts are Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Sèvres-Babylone and rue de Rennes. Haute couture and ready-to-wear: everything is there!

On rue de Rennes, there is a line-up of major brands including Etam, H&M, Gap and Kookaï.

At the bottom of the road, on boulevard Saint-Germain and in neighbouring streets, the window displays of grand couturiers vie with one another: Giorgio Armani, Sonia Rykiel, Christian Dior, and also Ralph Lauren, A.P.C., Carven, Vicomte A., and finally, for bags, Jérôme Dreyfuss. The designer Karl Lagerfeld has a shop at 194 boulevard Saint Germain.

In 2013, the chocolate and sweet maker Meert (originating from Lille), well-known for its inimitable vanilla waffle, has opened a shop in the 6th arrondissement. The first Parisian shop of La Tarte Tropézienne, founded in Saint-Tropez, has also opened on rue Montfaucon.

The district also has a variety of brands with shops like Caroll, Havaianas, Ice Watch, and Edward.Edward.
