Iris is one of the best-kept secrets of several top runway designers. The Italian-based shoe manufacturer produces shoes for Chloé, Marc Jacobs, Victor & Rolf, John Galliano, Veronique Branquinho, and Paul Smith. And at this boutique in the 7th, they have gathered their factory exports under one roof.
The deco is nothing extraordinary or memorable for that matter: white on white. However the spotlight is on the abundance of shoes lined on shelves. Shoe-addicts will think they have died and followed the white light. But before one gets too excited about the designer roundup, mistaking the minimal space for a stock store, know that the prices are equivalent to each designer’s boutique. The advantage of coming to Iris is having the variety of styles as well as sizes, and of course saving yourself a trip to six other boutiques.
