Galeries du Palais-Royal

Galeries du Palais-Royal

Map
6 Rue de Montpensier, Paris, 75001, France

A collection of excellent shops along the galleries that enclose the garden behind the palace itself: Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, the glove maker Mary Beyer, Rick Owens, the king of vintage couture Didier Ludot, and the accessories genius Pierre Hardy, who also designs for Balenciaga and Hermès. In spite of its dead-central location, the Palais-Royal is quiet and calm. This is partly due to its status as a historically protected monument (it was built as the home of Cardinal Richelieu in the early 1600's): the companies it houses can never eclipse the structure itself. In most cases, the original shop signage remains virtually unchanged from a century ago, so it's the windows, far recessed under those gorgeous colonnades, that have to do the talking, and most of them choose to whisper. You could visit the gardens and almost not know you were in the city's coolest de facto luxury mall.
