Temporary fashion or real revolution, concept stores are growing up in Paris. The Hotel Particulier, at Rue Leopold Bellan distances itself from the others by its location.  It is set within an 18th century mansion that was once housed by the Hermes Family and has been re-worked by Dirk Engelen (Antwerp-based architect).  The focus is on fashion of course, with a mix of well known labels along with some up and coming Parisian designers--although everything is for sale (including the furniture). And if your looking for a place to sleep after your shopping experience--the other half of the mansion is a hotel, with 5 suites uniquely designed by 5 different designers; a must see when in Paris.  We think its simply divine.
