While most surely a large number of the readers of the “Concrete Jungle” are not located in France, it’s a pitty because that city is one of my favorite destinations when it comes to design. And nost just the practical side of it, but the very practical side of shopping and getting all that great stuff that you sometimes don’t even need. It’s easy to get lost in this city with shopping, which is why a short visit is recommended to limit the load. But then there is the online side of it all, where anyone from anywhere can engage in not just design shopping but just about anything, that is french. Most probably the easiest and the most affordable place to obtain your French goods is the well known Amazon store. But don’t worry about the language, because now you can access Amazon.fr in English without problems. And for those who are still not convinced, Amazon is the biggest internet retailer in the world. So naturally, it means big business and one of the biggest collections of just about anything, French style!
But there is much, much more to explore on the online world of France itself. So read on!
Though the French are not as keen on internet shopping as people in other countries, this is slowly changing. People all over France are now opening up to the idea of staying in and shopping from their home. This has not only boosted the online market economy, but is also giving Francophiles all over the world the chance to get their favorite French products right on their doorstep!
Fashion has an iconic importance in French culture. That effortless French chic has been making people all over the world jealous for centuries. It is no wonder, then, that the fashion industry is the one that is profiting the most from this new boom in online shopping. There are thousands of shops, but there are some that have specially won the heart of the French. Stores like Colette and L’Exception offer exceptional fashion items with a unique flair. La redoute provides people all over the world with the newest styles and variety. For high couture at reasonable prices, Etoile Isabel Marant- by one of the most famous French designers- is a great option, hugely popular amongst the English.
Online shopping, however, isn’t limited to fashion. Customers can go to the FNAC website and get all the music, books, and movies that keeps them coming to this widely popular chain. Another store where people can find these items, along with many others, is Amazon France- the French version of one of the world’s most successful online stores. For electronics and anything related to technology, Rue du commerce is the most popular site in the country. For an original website that lets you buy and send delicious French delicacies online check out the incredible Valette Foie Gras.
There is no end to what you can find in online French stores, so whether you are in France or somewhere else in the world, take advantage of technology and get the best items France has to offer without leaving home! And remember, that if you want to get started on your French shopping voyage abroad, head on to Amazon.fr for your basic needs.
