Favourite luxury fashion stores.
I’ve been shopping my whole life, and I can tell you that the best things in life aren’t things. They’re experiences. But let’s be honest: shopping is fun, too. So here’s a list of some of my favourite luxury fashion stores. A collection that includes everything from high-end boutiques to department stores to street-side stalls. There you can find unique creations from local artisans, here is our guide of the Favourite luxury fashion stores:
Saks Fifth Avenue
Saks Fifth Avenue is a luxury department store. It’s the flagship of the Saks Fifth Avenue chain of high-end department stores. The company was founded in 1902 by Joseph Saks as a small dry goods store in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA. In 1911 it moved to its current location on Michigan Avenue in Chicago and became known as “Saks 609” after that, year’s opening of another store at 609 North Michigan Avenue (now Macy’s).
In 1982 it became part of RCA Corporation with other RCA businesses such as Columbia Pictures and NBC Radio Stations. However, due to poor performance by these divisions, they live very short.
- Hermès is a French luxury fashion house based in Paris. It designs, manufactures, distributes and retails leather, silk, ready-to-wear, accessories and perfumes.
- In 1953 Georges Jacob and Paul Meusnier opened their first store on rue de Rivoli (then called “Le Louvre”). The store was an instant success; within a few years it had expanded to five locations around the world. Today there are over 300 stores worldwide including outlets in Hong Kong; New York City; Shanghai; Bangkok; Los Angeles etc., as well as many shops in France itself where you can find all your favourite brands such as Hermès handbags or Yves Saint Laurent perfume at affordable prices.
Selfridges is a chain of department stores in the United Kingdom. American-born Harry Gordon Selfridge found the company Selfridges. He is the son of a Chicago merchant and opened its first store on Oxford Street in London.
The store has since expanded to 16 locations across England, Scotland and Wales as well as branches in other countries including China, Japan, New York City (including one at Rockefeller Center) and Los Angeles where it operates under the name Selfridges & Co. In June 2016 it opened another flagship store in Shanghai. This became its sixth international outbound shop when it expands into Hong Kong later this year.
Neiman Marcus is a luxury department store with origins dating back to 1907. It is owned by the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Ares Management. They also own Saks Fifth Avenue and Lord & Taylor.
Neiman Marcus was founded in Dallas by brothers Richard and Julian Neiman as an exclusive mail-order house for American women who wanted to dress like society ladies or debutantes but couldn’t afford their dresses or jewelry at the time (this was before there were any nationwide department stores). They sold clothes from France, Italy and England through catalogues; today these are still available online at neimanmarcus.com

Galeries Lafayette is a French department store chain with its flagship store on Boulevard Haussmann in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. It was originally established as an upscale emporium for luxury fashion goods and other high-end goods (such as furniture), but over time it became more generalist, offering products from around the world at reasonable prices.

And if none of that appeals then there are also plenty more online shops where you can buy designer clothes at great prices too. So long as your credit card have enough money to buy your needs, you won’t face any problem.
