THIS WEEKEND IN: PARIS
The globe’s fashion capital is particularly appealing during sales season, which this summer lasts until July 30. Les soldes, as they are commonly referred to in Paris, occur just twice a year, in winter and summer, so hurry up and book your Paris getaway if you want to benefit from massive discounts on designer summer goods by the likes of Balenciaga, Dior, Saint Laurent and more.
After a day of shopping, unwind at the new spa inside Paris’ five-star Shangri-La Hotel. Conceived by Pierre-Yves Rochon, the luxurious well-being space houses Carita treatment rooms. shangri-la.comParis is also a great place to stock up on fine foods.
