Michel Léger, Paris Boutique, St. Germain-des-Prés

Happenstance led me to discover another designer, Michel Léger, while wandering around the Left Bank, on my way to Mariage Frères, where I sipped my favorite tea and nibbled on pastries.

Michel Léger greeted me warmly and enjoyed showing me his simple and unstructured separates in natural fabrics like silk, wool, linen and a beautiful high end synthetic with the drape of a wool crepe. These are easy to wear, throw on pieces that are both classic and elegant. The sizing is very generous and forgiving. Neutrals coordinated beautifully with prints and strong colors and helped them pop. There are complimentary scarves as well. Kyoko was the charming salesperson from Japan who helped me, and who confessed that her dream is to visit San Francisco!

 

The boutique is on the ground floor of a 17th century building in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, at 19 rue des Grands-Augustins, Paris 6th.

After shopping, you can rest your feet and have tea at the nearby Mariage Frères.
