Palais Royal (or to be specific, the Galeries de Montpensier) is known for its manicured trees, delightfully shaded cafes, and, ok– Marc Jacobs and Pierre Hardy stores. It is the perfect place to sit out by the fountain on a lazy Saturday morning and read the journal.
Enjoy that tranquility while it lasts, because the Palais Royal is fast on its way to rivaling other shopping districts like Avenue Montaigne and the Marais.
Now rumored to be joining Marc Jacobs on the arcade is Stella McCartney, who is looking to open her first Parisian store. Ralph Lauren is already committed to the location. And Acne Jeans will come in to provide something we can actually afford!
