With clothing and products for women, men, children, interiors and vintage available as well as a used bookshop, café, floral shop and Annick Goutal perfume counter, Merci is the new retail mecca in Paris for those of discerning taste.

The extensive women’s section features clothing and shoes by French favorites like Isabel Marant and Freelance, with a selection of pieces by international designers like Stella McCartney, Marni, Paul & Joe and many more. Several designers have created special styles available exclusively at Merci, which are denoted by a tiny gold medallion. Merci is a must-stop for ladies in-the-know looking for one-of-a-kind pieces.

It’s no secret that Parisian men have a keen eye for fashion and enjoy putting together chic and unique ensembles. Merci’s men’s corner is a direct reflection of this, featuring superb sartorial choices by the likes of Paul Smith and Lanvin among others. Don’t miss the selection of Clark’s desert boots, special Vans and Levi’s for the option to either dress up or down.

Given the owners’ history in the childrenswear industry, it’s no surprise that the children’s section at Merci is a whimsical paradise, with adorable pieces by Bonpoint, Antik Batik, Petit Bateau and others rounding out the selection. A playhouse with a pint-size dressing room is on hand to make youngsters feel more at home while their parents choose adorable, sophisticated pieces for them.

The vintage corner at Merci features a well-edited selection of laundered and ironed vintage pieces for women, as well as a rack of charming children’s clothing. Silk nightgowns from the 1930s sit next to vintage YSL and Valentino, all reasonably priced and in good condition. A small, rotating selection of accessories ranging from handbags to belts to jewelry, as well as a handful of well-worn yet comfortable armchairs, round out the vintage offerings.

The top floor is an interior-lover’s dream, with a plethora of unique ceramics, glassware, furniture and more for those with discerning yet eclectic taste. Well-sourced vintage furniture is mixed in amongst new pieces, helping create a “refined flea market” feel that is clearly embodied by the interiors section at Merci. Don’t miss the basement, which features a selection of affordable tableware and innovative lighting solutions.
