A travel guide you'll actually use.

Words by

Giulia Brugliera

Travel guides are antiquated. There, I said it.

With unlimited travel info available at the behest of a Wi-Fi password, and luggage allowance a precious commodity, carrying a travel guide can be a burden.

But when your travel guide is by Ines de la Fressange, one can obviously make an exception.

Following the best selling Parisian Chic, Parisian Chic City Guide is a curation of the very best salons, stores, cafés, bars and hidden gems that Paris has to offer. Recommendations are grouped by arrondissement, with an accompanying one-liner explaining why it’s worth the trip.

In true Ines style, it’s a masterful mix of high and low price points that only the fashion elite do best.
