Paris has a new department store called Merci, it is a uber upmarket op-shop and provides guilt-free shopping. I love the concept and I think most cities could do with one or two of these.

It is the brain child of Bernand and Marie-France Cohen the couple behind the luxury children’s clothing brand Bonpoint.

It has a few levels that includes coffee shop, florist, habadashery, second hand books and even a fragrance store. There is of course vintage designer bags and clothes and also a designer corner where designers such as YSL, Stella McCartney, Azzaro, Alexis Mabille and Marni design new pieces that sell at a lot less, as well as cut price kids clothes from Bonpoint.

All of the profits are channelled into a foundation to support children's charities in Madagascar.
