Just a few steps from the rue des Martyrs on the rue de La Vieuville, Paris fashionistas have beaten a path to the door of Spree. Husband and wife team Roberta Oprandi and Bruno Hadjadj pioneered the Martyrs area ten years ago with the notion of giving talented young designers an outlet. They later branched out into fashion elites—Margiela 6, Isabel Marant, Comme des Garçons and Tsumori Chisato. What’s great here is that the staff has done all the work for you—the expertly chosen inventory of big-name designers alongside fabulous finds from labels you’ve never heard of seems almost curated. There’s also a choice selection of accessories and jewelry, along with notable pieces of mid-century modern furniture and lighting; a revolving exhibition of original artwork by local artists completes the gallery atmosphere. 16 rue de La Vieuville, 18th, website
