Once upon a time, not too long ago, in the middle of 19th century Paris, Le Bon Marché was born in a period of prosperity, shortly before the industrial revolution. And it was no coincidence. The power couple that the Boucicaut turned out to be at the time, had a strong French elegance in the way they conducted their business. In fact, they made a name of themselves by making sure that their business was run with flair, empathy, heart and dedication.
And if you’ve ever shopped at Printemps, Barney’s, Selfridges or Harrods, then you know how important these places are to fashion enthusiasts worldwide. Everything in these department stores was designed to let you see, wander and wonder. Le Bon Marché is no exception.
