You may think that the only reason to head to Rue Saint-Honoré is to hit Colette and all the other big name fashion boutiques. Well, I have news for you. After Merci and le Bon Marche, there is another store that I always try to get to when in gay Pareeee, and that’s the Astier de Villatte store at the Louvre end of Rue Saint-Honoré, just along from Cafe Ruc.
Its a tiny store and you could easily pass it by, but I urge you to search it out and pop in to this crazy little emporium if you are in vicinity. Aside from all of the gorgeous, milky glazed, artfully wonky, ultra stylish crockery, you’ll find their amazing scented candles and body products, alongside some quirky curios that change every time I pop in there. It’s always an inspiration, from the store windows to the tiny back room, stacked high with amazing platters and decorative ‘objets’.
If you’re not off to Paris but would still like to have a look at the Astier de Villatte range, then Liberty have a great selection.
