The sales will help you realise your dreams without being too hard on your budget.
There’s a multitude of places where you can find retail bliss. To put you in the mood for your shopping spree, the team here at the Hotel Jacques de Molay have some ideas to offer. A short stroll from your room, you’ll find many on-trend fashion boutiques in the Marais.

Paris Fashion Week starts on January 18th with men's trends and then continues from the 22nd until the 26th with Haute Couture.
