"Ahh, She's Famous for her White Tailored Blouses!" Top 5 Page for this destination Anne Fontaine Tip by BeatChick
Anne Fontaine, Paris: 1 reviews and 1 photos
Anne Fontaine is famous for her white tailored blouses that are perfect for business wear yet romantic & feminine enough for evening or casual wear. The blouses include gorgeous detailing: pintucks, embroidery, lace, fabric flowers - tres jolie! They look equally great with a tailored suit or tucked into jeans or with a beautiful long skirt. Even if you don't intend to buy, just pop in - the staff is impeccable and you may browse as long as you wish without feeling as if you're intruding. She's made the little white blouse as chic as the little black dress. I think it's very smart to specialize in one color only, especially the color that's extremely versatile - white.
Evidently everyone else thinks so, too, as her 1 little shop in the Marais has now grown to 7 throughout Paris:
50 rue Etienne Marcel, 2nd
12 rue des Francs Bourgeois, 3rd (flagship store)
81 rue des Saints Peres, 6th
Le Village Royal, 24 rue Boissy d'Anglas, 8th
Printemps (4th floor), 64 bd Haussman, 9th
Galeries Lafayette (2nd floor), 40 bd Haussman, 9th
22 rue de Passy, 16th
What to buy: White tailored blouses by Anne Fontaine.
What to pay: I popped in to do some brousing and to check out the prices; on the low end I saw blouses for 115? and on the high end 250?. That's not to say there aren't some that are more expensive. ;)
Address: 12 rue des Francs-Bourgeois - Marais - 3rd arr
Directions: Just 1 block west of Place des Vosges on rue des Francs-Bourgeois almost to rue de Sevigne.
