LA PLACE DES VICTOIRES


06.2014

Paris boasts five royal places, open spaces each designed as the setting for a monument to one of the Bourbon kings. Straddling the border between the 1st and 2nd arrondissements is Place des Victoires, a perfect 80m-diameter circle offering a worthy setting for Louis XIV on his rearing horse. Some of the splendid mansions around it now boast fashion stores such as Kenzo, Zadig & Voltaire, Maje and Claudie Pierlot.
