Le Bon Marché inaugurates new women’s footwear section

Mar 3, 2015

Le Bon Marché is continuing to reinvent itself, inaugurating a new women’s footwear section. Previously located on the ground floor of the Paris store alongside women's fashion, the footwear section has now been given 22,500 square feet of space one floor above.

Crowned by a spectacular antique glass roof, sixty or so brands - including fifteen exclusively distributed by the store such as Band of outsiders and MSGM - display their collections in a setting that reflects the original architectural aspirations of Le Bon Marché. 

A dark gray metal structure called "The Winter Garden" hosts the luxury houses Chanel, Dior, Prada and Roger Vivier. In an outer periphery made up of small enclaves, one can find collections by Balenciaga, Céline, Church, Jimmy Choo and Valentino.

"L’Ampithéâtre", a 120-foot long staircase, features products from brands such as Chloe, Givenchy and Lanvin, and all around are collections by designers including Dries Van Noten, Jil Sander and Proenza Schouler.

"The Glass Nave", with its twenty-foot high shelves, showcases designs from new and/or exclusively distributed brands such as Chiara Ferragni, Band of Outsiders, Markus Lupfer and the collaboration between Opening Ceremony and Repetto. The range also features fashionable sneakers by Minna Parikka and Twins For Peace next to classic brands like Adidas, Converse and Vans. 

Finally, the "L’Atelier" space celebrates craftsmanship with shoes by Clergerie, Hogan, Sartore and Weston.
