Concierge.com's insider take:
If Paris has a priestess of high fashion, it is surely Maria Luisa Poumaillou. A champion of young designers since she opened her original store on the Rue Cambon in the late '80s, she was among the first to recognize budding designers John Galliano and Alexander McQueen, and introduced Parisians to Manolos. A constellation of boutiques followed, which now have been consolidated into two: one for cutting-edge womenswear and another across the street for menswear (38 Rue du Mont Thabor, 75001). Of late, her unerring eye and inherent elegance have won her a new title—that of "fashion editor" to the department store Le Printemps, where she opened an eponymous space in late 2009.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10:30 am to 7 pm.
