Didier Ludot


24 Galerie de Montpensier,


For vintage threads, this boutique situated among the gardens of the Palais Royal attracts a well-heeled clientele. Every piece in fashion expert Didier Ludot’s shop is hand-curated from French haute couture houses, including Givenchy, Chanel, and Dior, but there are also international selections, such as Valentina, Charles James, and Mainbocher. Pieces in the shop range from over-the-top evening gowns to timeless little black dresses all created between 1900 and 1980, and although previously owned, these items do not come cheap. Ludot contributes his own personal style and vision with a line of original designs.
