Thanx God I’m a V.I.P.
Sylvie Chateigner opened this Paris vintage shop with an ironic name between the Place de la République and the Canal St.-Martin in 1994. A few months later she launched a series of fabulous parties under the same name that united the worlds of music, media, and fashion, catching the attention of big names such as Karl Lagerfield, a frequent collaborator. Color-coded racks hold impeccably selected pieces from designers ranging from Yves St. Laurent to Lacoste that are in superb condition and won’t break the bank. A basement space holds less expensive, multi-ethnic items.
