The city of arts and pleasures. Home of amazing monuments and priceless artworks. Symbol of French culture and landmark of its greatness for the world. A world that Paris conquered among centuries with its influence in politics, culture, lifestyle and economics. Ever since the origins of Europe, Paris has been a rule maker for the western side of the continent. Paris cannot be mentioned without its association with love. It’s the city of lovers, and it’s a city you end up with falling in love to. So this is why a recent study stated that Paris, with over 28 million of visitors per year, is the most visited city on earth. And also the most expensive one, according to the Economist.

But when QUIIMA thinks of Paris, all that we see is luxury. The dashing showcase among the notorious boulevard, the trend runaways, the five star apartment with a view on Eiffel Tower, the businesswomen walking down the Champs Elysees wearing our most precious made in italy shoes filled with shining jewels.
Shopping on sundays in Paris
The Sunday’s opening for Parisian boutiques has always been highly regulated by French Government, but something is going to change. A new law promoted directly by the Minister of Economics Emmanuel Macron, about “Zones for International Tourism” has just been approved. This agreement between storekeepers and labor unions will permit the opening on sundays for boutiques and shop if it is in their interests.
This agreement involve the flagship store of over 30 luxury brands like Chanel, Christian Dior and Louis Vuitton.
