The Marais, known to be Paris’ Jewish/gay district, is also known for its collection of contemporary and indie boutiques that ooze style and creativity. Having retained the feel of medieval Paris, each of the Marais’ numerous small side streets contain a hidden gem, be it a custom-made shoe store or a depot vente with vintage crocodile Birkins. With the help of Parismarais, the go-to website for everything and anything about the Marais, here are the best places to shop for your perfect Parisian fashion find.

This boutique is your best bet when searching for that quintessential Parisian scarf.
