A reservation at the Hotel Jacques de Molay, in the Marais district, will ensure that you are right at the forefront to enjoy the astonishing deals available during this discount period, and to catch some of the Paris Fashion Week shows and presentations.
The Paris Winter Sales; your chance to buy great clothing at knock-down prices!
The winter sales begin in Paris on January 6th, 2016 at 8 am precisely and that’s when the action starts as savvy shoppers snap up fabulous items at discounted prices. It’s shopaholic heaven and sheer joy for bargain hunters, offering the opportunity to buy shoes, a dress or a great brand jacket with discounts of up to 70%. A word of advice; be on the ball by identifying the items you’re interested in a few days before the kick-off, so you won’t be wasting any time hunting on that frantic first day. Remember, too, that high end shops are no exception to the rule and will also be slashing their prices for the six weeks of the sales period, increasing the discounts as time goes by. Galeries Lafayette, which is besieged during this period, offer Lacoste outfits or Karl Lagerfeld handbags at amazing prices. There are also many other great places, such as Bon Marché or the Forum des Halles, where you can find top tier fashion item at the lowest prices.
The six week sales period is wonderful fun, and you’ll return tired but happy to your Hotel Jacques de Molay, where the best thing to do is relax and enjoy a zen moment in our welcoming wellness centre. Here you can benefit from a relaxing massage and a soothing spa session, also at bargain prices.
Paris Fashion Week
It’s perhaps the world’s most hotly anticipated event for hardcore fashionistas. Paris Fashion Week bursts into strutting life in January 2016, at the same time as the winter sales, conveniently enough! The focus is on men's fashion from January 20th to 24th, while Haute Couture takes its turn in the spotlight from January 24th to 29th. The hottest designers in the world will present their new collections for the upcoming season in shows vibrant with creativity. Only people with an invitation can get into the most exclusive shows to admire the works presented on the catwalk.
