This concept store seems coming out of a novel by Agatha Christie: furniture in the seventies with their mix of geometric prints. What makes this vintage shop unique is the presence of a bar where you can sip a drink during an intense shopping session. The small tables outside recall the Parisian style and are also suitable for a romantic evening. Snooping around, I was kidnapped here by the fancy dresses and leather jackets, really gorgeous.
