What else can we say? Chloé, the epitome of French girlie-chic, at 40% – 70% discount. It all happens at Twin 7, a sample sale space just on the boundaries of le Marais. Most of the year, when it’s not holding private events, the boutique is the stock location of both Chloé and See by Chloé. You’ll find clothes, bags, shoes, accessories, and runway items from current and past collections.
The store is unmarked, and is technically open only “upon invitation”. So when you get there (there will be no mistaking the shoeboxes and soft leather accessories peeking through the window) just pretend your stylist friend sent you on her behalf. Or make up something equally unverifiable, and make sure to pair it with a smile. Most likely, the sales clerk will shrug you in and go back to chatting on the phone, leaving you to browse in pure shopping ecstasy.
