Galeries Lafayette: Shopping for the French Lifestyle

A large building with many windows

(Sponsored article) Located in Paris’s ninth arrondissement right by the Palais Garnier opera house, Galeries Lafayette Haussmann is an experience not to be missed. As one of the most famous department stores in the world, Galeries Lafayette possesses a cultural significance that has influenced French style and living since the store’s creation in 1893 and still even today. Four bloggers were invited to the Galeries during Paris Fashion Week to experience this amazing Parisian shopping opportunity.

Influencer Christine Hsu, based in Los Angeles, CA has written her blog kkarmalove around her chic lifestyle and travel adventures. Galeries Lafayette offered her a trip to their flagship store in Paris to see what the fuss was all about. Suffice it to say, she fell in love: “They are seriously the most gorgeous department store I’ve ever been in.”

Spreading the “art of French living” best summarizes what to expect. Living like the French is about lifestyle, about things beyond the basics of clothing, accessories, jewelry, shoes. Galeries Lafayette pays attention to the details of French lifestyle, providing the services and products to fully live à la française.

While all the dresses, pants, shoes, bags, and jewelry that provide that base appearance of a French lifestyle are available in Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, they go beyond clothing. The beauty department has makeup counters offering services to help you master that minimalist French look. For the French haircut, they have a salon on site, the Alexandre de Paris Salon. The luggage section ensures you can find what you need to travel stress-free and in style.

For the rest of your living needs, Lafayette Maison has Francophiles covered. Galeries Maison can outfit an entire home in the French style. Linens, décor, candles, cooking, dinnerware, and more are laid out elegantly in the store dedicated just to French living, located just next to the main Lafayette Haussmann.

Finally, French living is appreciating the finer things in life, away from the tourists. Forget the line for the Eiffel Tower, and visit La Terrasse rooftop on the Lafayette Haussmann for its drop-dead gorgeous 360-degree view of the city.
