For more than a century, Avenue Montaigne has been THE place for high fashion thanks to the presence of renowned labels like Christian Dior (#30), Valentino (#17-19), Chanel (#51) Nina Ricci (#39), Harry Winston Jewelers (#29) as well as the plush Plaza Athenee Hotel (#21), a favorite amongst many barons, billionaires, movie stars and heads of state.
Like the typical "grand dame" of fashion that it has become, avenue Montaigne is pretty complete. Parfums Caron (#34), a gem of a perfume shop with pearl gray drapes, stylist mirrors and a grand crystal chandelier, boasts a dozen monumental Baccarat urns filled with re-edited precious scents dating as far back as 1919 and sold nowhere else in the world. Take a break and have lunch at L'Avenue (#41), or at the chic canteen at the Relais Plaza (#21), Take in a concert at the Theatre des Champs Elysees (#15), or indulge in dinner at the Maison Blanche (#15) a sleek and distinctly noteworthy restaurant atop the Salle Drouot-Montaigne, itself a highly esteemed auction house.
