Dries Van Noten, Paris

Dries Van Noten
7, Quai Malaquais
75006 Paris
0033144270040

7 Quai Malaquais is not just a tonied shopping address. Perhaps one of the most beautiful stores in Europe, Dries Van Noten's boutique on the Seine shouldn't be missed.

It is a visual feast, and inspiring beyond belief. The interior is based around Dries's favourite colour - imperial yellow - and the sunny hue covers everything from the designer's lookbook to his curtains. Dries Van Noten himself transformed the 17th-century space into an elegant apartment to house his private art collection “as it would have naturally evolved from the 17th to the 21st centuries.”

The split-level store features works like an 18th-century Antwerp cabinet in ebony and tortoiseshell, a 19th-century Japanese black lacquer cabinet and a retro ‘50s sofa covered in Prelle fabric. This, all spread about in a library and balcony, a dressing room, a drawing room and a conservatory.
