Walter Raymond


This exclusive department store keeps all the leading brands under one roof.


 

 

Strolling through the streets of Paris is one of the most intense experiences for those who live in or visit the City of Light. But reviewing the immense variety of exclusive boutiques— looking for clothing, jewelry or accessories— requires a great deal of time. However, when time is sparse, there is an option that allows you the pleasure of enjoying the most distinguished labels. Located on the Rive Gauche— one of the city’s most aristocratic areas in the heart of the bohemian neighborhood of Saint Germain des Prés— is Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, the exclusive department store that brings together all the leading fashion brands under one roof.

Elegance and good taste
 
From Louis Vuitton to Dior, and including brands such as Chanel, the most prestigious clothing, watches and jewelry firms find space in this luxury bazaar. Here, you’ll find exclusive collections of women's shoes, fine leather goods and accessories for the most discriminating taste distributed in three luxurious levels. One of the most beautiful spaces on the second floor, called La Neuf de lumière, is devoted solely to women’s footwear while the large Art Deco hall on the ground floor is dedicated to beauty products and perfumes.

The universe of glamorous and sexy lingerie has an intimate, discreet and comfortable space with personalized advice that facilitates decision-making.

Le Bon Marché features a generous area dedicated to male elegance. The path to browse the diverse garments and accessories for men goes through soberly decorated sectors that are linked in some way to the various stages and facets of male routine: The Entrance, The Office, The Dressing Galerie, the gym and the library.

The barber shop and the shoeshine section are clad in exquisite detail. Both are decorated in a traditional style. To complement the offer, there is also the Cava, with more than three thousand different wines selected among the elite of French and international productions, plus the exquisite restaurant Balthazar.

Origins and evolution

In 1852, Aristide Boucicaut created the first department store in the world, Grand Paris Le Bon Marché. Later, in early 1875, the store sets a new trend in Europe opening an art gallery where painters and sculptors would exhibit their works  and—as a result—attract a refined clientele. 

In 1984 Le Bon Marché became the luxury store it is today. Located in an elegant Parisian enclave, it combines modernity and tradition in a warm and special ambiance. Since its inception, the display windows of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche have become an additional attraction for passersby for their creativity, their ability to surprise and their usual touches of humor.

An aesthetic and instructive visit
 
The art gallery has become one of the focal points of the Parisian art circuit. That original idea to attract consumers interested in art and culture to Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche has become a reality in the capital's vibrant art scene, becoming a permanent venue for exhibitions of established and emerging artists from France and elsewhere. The works are strategically distributed in different spaces, adding a significant aesthetic and intellectual value to the elegant proposals of the Rive Gauche. ■
