    VIBE

    Immerse yourself in the chic-meets-boho vibes of Paris’s gentrified Latin Quarter as you trawl the cute boutiques of intersecting streets Rue St-Sulpice and Rue Bonaparte. While the nearby Sorbonne is famed for lending an intellectual air to the area, the École des Beaux Arts (or Fine Arts Academy) on Rue Bonaparte contributes artsy, funky color with its creative student population and the bevy of galleries, cafés, and art shops that have sprung up around it. On Rue Bonaparte, we like popping into local boutiques like Dinh Van (simple, pretty jewelry), Les Montres (high-end watches), Le Jacquard Français (fun table linens), and Estime (simple canvas and leather luggage). On Rue St-Sulpice, more established labels like Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Annick Goutal, and Shanghai Tang caught our eye.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    We like how these Rive Gauche neighborhoods have a bit more funk and color than the ever-elegant Rive Droite. Our usual itinerary: taking a leisurely poke around the area and popping into any shop that catches our eye, followed by taking a chilled-out café break.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    The nearby Jardin du Luxembourg (at the south end of Rue Bonaparte) makes a nice spot to take a break from shopping. Pick up a couple of decadent macarons from Pierre Hermé on Rue Bonaparte, and then snag a cute green chair in the park to rest on as you nibble on cookies and review your purchases.
