The iconic Publicis Drugstore has just recently reopened its doors. Over 2000 square meters of restaurants (there are 2) and shops (there are 10), where you can seven days a week till 2.00 am, eat, buy and browse. From books and newspapers to gadgets & toys, a pharmacy, a deli, and a movie theatre, the Parisians can shop once again in the iconic 133 Avenue des Champs Elysées.
Renewing with the Drugstore DNA of the sixties, Maurice Lévy hired two prestigious project managers. Star designer Tom Dixon for the interiors and multi-starred chef Eric Frechon for the restaurants. Their mission was to re-invent the Drugstore as it was in the sixties.
Publicis Drugstore is back. Why change a winning team ?
I came across this divine little shop while staying in Mykonos this summer. Ergon Mykonos offers an elegant and contemporary selection of home accessories, fashion, and art as any concept store should. The selection takes its inspiration from the tales of Greek mythology combined with contemporary aesthetics. Founded 5 years ago by Marietta Karpathiou, Ergon Mykonos showcases a refined selection which spans from kaftans, espadrilles, pillows and beach towels to sculptures and jewelry. Each item is original and successfully blends Greek heritage and pop style. Don’t miss dropping by this little gem of a shop. It is a feast for the eyes.
Charismatic Artistic Creator and General Manager Sally Perrin sets the tone. Founded in 1893, RigaudyPerrin was France’s premier purveyor of leather gloves for the major couture houses.

The newly launched luxury line of handbags and leather accessories revived the multigenerational family business by combining the finest quality skins with highly conceptual design. brother, Henri, oversaw the Perrin tannery in Vietnam. although Michel’s family history in the leather-glove business extends back generations, Sally & Michel Perrin opted to relaunch the brand by introducing a line of handbags to compliment the glove collection.
