Travel Treasures: Centre Commercial, a hip concept store in Paris

Let me start with this pic and introduce you to my last find  in Paris – a cute Veja bag -trying to get Spring her as soon as possible.

Voy a empezar este post con mi última adquisición hecha en Paris – un bolso de Veja -intentando provocar que llegue la primavera cuanto antes! 

This is the reason why I stayed longer in Paris after 2 working days: the Centre Commercial in the 10ème arrondissement I had found somewhere in the net. When researching on their site, I guess calling them a concept store would be pretty exact, I realized I didn’t know more than a 10% of the brands they carry being that the main reason I wanted to pay them a visit.

Extendí me estancia en Paris la semana pasada después de un par de días de trabajo porque quería visitar esta tienda: el Centre Commercial .

They offer labels made in France, Denmark and Great Britain with a focus on local production which has become a true philosophy of mine. On top, it is a collective space, uniting local, social and environmental initiatives.

Llevan marcas de Francia, Dinamarca  e Inglaterra que se producen localmente, así que otro punto a favor porque ésta ya es del todo mi filosofía ahora. Además, se trata de un espacio colectivo que se utiliza para iniciativas sociales y de impacto medio-ambiental.

I was lucky enough to still see the collaboration of Bérangère Claire and the Centre Commercial (external window set up)…

Tuve la suerte de ver aún la colaboración entre  ellos y Bérangère Claire que montó el escaparate ….

…and the small collection exclusively created such as those gorgeous shirts with different fabric pockets. All sheltered by a pretty glass roof!

…y dedicó una colección en exclusiva con prendas estupendas como estas camisas con un bolsillo de diferente tejido.

They sell everything you can find in the store, with the exception of this lighting made by a Brasilian artist.

Venden todo lo que puedas encontrar en la tienda, excepto al luz del techo que diseño un artista brasileño para ellos.

The founder of the Centre Commercial have previously embarked on the cool label Veja with ecological sneakers, bags and accessories you can find here too (see the sneakers with the yellow laces and the bag behind?). The one I am wearing is from the same brand.

Los fundadores del Centre Commercial ya habían creado anteriormente la marca Veja que se caracteriza por sus zapatillas ecológicas, bolsos y accesorios. También se vende aquí como las zapatillas de los cordones amarillas y el bolso de atrás ( y el mío:-)

And this is a new collection of men shoes in 3 colours with their own label design. I like a lot the coloured lace detail! I already know today when visiting in September the Maison&Objet, I’ll be back!

Esta es su primera colección de calzado de hombre que han lanzado bajo la marca de Centre Commercial en 3 colores. Me gusta el detalle de los cordones. En fin, en Septiembre estaré de vuelta como muy tarde para la Maison&Objet, y no me perderé una segunda visita!

How about some extra inspiration?

    1. I was surprised by the whole neighborhood in fact! It was stumbling from one interesting place to the other! Guess I missed the Galerie Végétale but will go soon again!

    1. Ja, und dann hätten wir eine neue Kolumne. Wer trägt die gleiche Tasche und wie kombiniert!:-) Ich sag doch, wir machen noch was zusammen…

  1. Da hätte ich aber auch gern geshoppt (schöne tasche auch, übrigens!) Oder auch nur geschaut – solche Läden mit ausgewählten Produkten sind ja immer wie eine kleine Ausstellung der schönsten Dinge.

    1. Sie haben sehr interessante Marken. Rosanna, eine französische Designerin soll wohl in Paris gerade das must have Label sein. xx

    1. I get along with the small bag and my Iphone when I am around in town. But yes, for larger excursions, of course I do carry a bigger bag!

  2. What an interesting find. I love collaborations like that and the mix of clothing and vintage furniture. Love your bag, very sweet and a good size – I’m looking for one like that! x

    1. You can shop online at Veja if you want too. But this year there is really a good choice at so many brands. It’s going to be a colorful season!
