L’Espionne is one of the most famous concept stores in Paris – a stylistic temple dedicated to fashion enthusiasts – it is the favourite address for men and women who love famous brands such as Balmain, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Marni, Saint Laurent, Lanvin, Alaia, Alexander McQueen, Martin Margiela, Miu Miu, Revillon, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester …
Located within the Palais des Congrès shopping center in the chic 17th district, L’Espionne boutique already stands out by its location – far from the traditional districts of fashion – a very avant-garde choice like its owners, Claudine Barnabé and Christian Martin.
In an open space, side by side there is two shops combining comfort and elegance. It is with a cup of coffee or a glass of champagne, that the customers are received – a friendly welcome to make the fitting sessions a pleasure and real shopping experience. A large part of this clientele are loyal and regular, some even becoming friends with the owners. “We become confidants, we know the circumstances in which the garment will be worn, we even buy unique pieces by knowing who will love them …We love fashion, but the person is more important than clothing,” says Christian when talking about his loyal customers.
Since its creation in the 80s, Christian and Claudine have a very particular vision of fashion – They love above all exceptional creations and we see this “love for fashion” in the choice of each piece.
The beautiful brands are all there, and it’s their unique ability to identify and select the very best of these brands that make this fashion duo a real success and that allows them to continue to be the very best in their domain. Between the last collections signed for the most famous labels, to new designers, the shop is a treasure cove for fashion lovers.
A mandatory address for those who like beautiful brands and exceptional pieces in a cool and cozy atmosphere.
