The lure of Paris - the most exciting shopping city in the world - is irresistible. But how, among all the profusion of possibilities, does one know where to turn to find the most stylish, the best taste, the best value? "Paris Chic" provides the discriminating shopper with the answers, listing more than 1000 outlets with addresses, telephone numbers and first-hand inside information. After many years with "Madame Figaro" and "L'Express", journalists Dominique Brabec and Egle Salvy know all there is to know about fashion and interior design. From high fashion to classical elegance, from high-tech to simple English-style decor, their curiosity is as boundless as their address book: and Paris Chic is based on knowledge acquired through their endless forays. From "The Art of Fashion" to "The Parisian Woman's Wardrobe", an exhaustive list of types of clothing - not forgetting accessories and beauty products unfolds the entire spectrum of Parisian modes, from the frivolous and fun to the elegant and sophisticated. "The Classics" brings together 41 basics, unaffected by vagaries of taste. The book's second half is devoted to household arts - from decorators to florists, designers to craftsmen, basic items to essential details. And since no-one can live on shopping alone, a list of places to stop for a light lunch, a drink or a snack punctuates the itinerary. The ideal pocket-sized companion for serious shopping, "Paris Chic" will save even the city's most seasoned habitues time and money, whilst leading them straight to the very cream of the city's inimitable style. Dominique Brabec has worked as a joumalist on "Jardin des Modes", "L'Express" and "L'Express-Paris". She is currently Deputy Editor of "Madame Figaro". Egle Salvy has been a journalist on "L'Express" for 25 years. She was head of "L'Express's" guide department and also responsible for "Madame-Express".
