Back in 1975, Didier Ludot virtually invented the market for vintage in Paris with his eponymous shop in the Palais Royal. Despite his reputation as the international emperor of 20th-century fashion, he can often be seen in the boutique, which sells immaculate haute couture pieces—look for the sternly handsome man with glasses. Across the park in the opposite gallery is another shop devoted to his favorite subject, "La Petite Robe Noire" (also the title of his book, published in 2001). Here, select vintage originals are merely the inspiration for his yearly collection of "petite couture"—hand-finished little black dresses that would do Audrey Hepburn proud. In 2009, he unveiled DL Palais Royal, a collection of lighter-priced LBDs that are younger in spirit; he also carries what he considers "significant" pieces that may even be from last year.

Didier Ludot open Mondays through Saturdays 10:30 am to 7 pm.

La Petite Robe Noire open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 7 pm.
