Paris is renown for the incredible opportunities it offers to obtain shopping euphoria. In a city already teeming with a dizzying array of chic retail options, from the flea markets to the couture houses, a couple more noteworthy events have just been illuminated for the lucky shoppers in the City of Lights.

Nina Ricci lovers will soon be able to snag designs by Olivier Theyskens, the Belgian-born designer
who showed his premier collection for Ricci this past March. The French house is planning to clear out it's inventory on Friday in a major one-off sale in Paris. The pieces up for grabs will cover several past seasons and include former runway show ensembles as well as ready-to-wear outfits. In addition to the luxe apparel, shoes and accessories will be available for as
little as 40 euros, or $55 dollars at average exchange rates. Allons-y! 250px-Galeries_Lafayette_inside

The legendary Parisian department store, Galeries Lafayette, is about to become even more of a fashion maven madhouse with the opening of a dedicated footwear
that the store claims will be the largest in
the world. Plans for the 34,500 square feet space, which almost doubles
Lafayette’s current shoe department in the Boulevard Haussmann store, will include a pedicure salon and a cobbler in addition to an inventory of an astounding 150 brands, half of which will be exclusive. With their key demographic of tourism in mind, the store has arranged for the staggering shoe supply to include European women sizes 34 to 43, or American sizes 2 to 9. The price range of the shoes will span anywhere from 100 to 1,300 euros, or $148 to $1,925. The shop, set to open in the basement of the Haussmann store, will debut next month.
