Sylvia Toledano ..shopping Paris style....



Paris is always a good idea... as the lyrics state...

I love Paris in the springtime.
I love Paris in the fall.
I love Paris in the winter when it drizzles,
I love Paris in the summer when it sizzles.

I love Paris every moment,
Every moment of the year.
I love Paris, why, oh why do I love Paris?



One of the many reasons to love and adore Paris is it is a fashion mecca as well as a shopping paradise. When next you visit the city of light, you must make sure to see the latest addition to the area of the Place Vendôme where you will find the eponymous shop of Sylvia Toledano is where she rules the kingdom of all that is haute!.  You’ll find her near the Louvre, the Palais Royale and Palais Garnier.




This soigné shop will evoke the feelings one might have experienced when entering the private rooms of Coco Chanel, Diana Vreeland, possibly Versailles but most of all you will know this is a place where luxury and fabulous coincide. The “magasin” has an intimate atmosphere that might cause some to say “well, I could just move right in!” The mission is to expand and encourage the shopping experience.



Ms. Toledano’s accessories are for both the ladies who lunch as well as the ladies who just love to have a good time and don’t mind a bit of flash and dash. The minaudieres evoke both humor as well as the classical and the jewelry reminds us of the artisanal as well as the precious. In other words, Ms. Toledano does not limit her appeal or audience by only offering one point of view.




This is where you find cuffs, rings, brooches, earrings that carry evocative and provocative names inspired by heroines and femmes fatales of history as well as by talisman, Byzantium, and the Amazon. Their sumptuous appearance, made possible by gilded metal and semiprecious stones such as Labradorite, Lapis Lazuli, Carnelian, Tiger Eye, Moonstone and more.



26 rue Danielle Casanova 75001 Paris.
Hours: Monday to Saturday from 11am to 19 pm.
