Spotlight On: Parisian Street Society

Tucked away in a little arcade off Toorak Road in South Yarra, Parisian Street Society is the realisation of a long-term dream by owner Shannyn and her mother Terry. Filled with treasures which have been collected by Shannyn and her mum mostly during yearly trips to France, Parisian Street Society is the perfect place to find a unique statement piece to complement any outfit.

During each trip to France, Shannyn and Terry trawl markets, brocantes and vide-greniers, carefully mapping out and planning their way around Paris and French countryside markets in search of beautiful collectible pieces.

Most of the jewels and accessories in Parisian Street Society are from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Collectibles from mainstream designers such as Chanel, YSL, Christian Lacroix, Lanvin and Givenchy, are mixed with treasures from rarer designers such as Isabel Canovas, Inna Cytrine, Dominique Aurientis and Edouard Rambaud. There is also a small selection of new French clothing labels from Zadig et Voltaire, The Kooples and Isabel Marant with a handful of wearable vintage garments from Givenchy and Hermes.

So make sure you stop by and check out all the beautiful pieces Parisian Street Society at Shop 7, 101- 105 Toorak Road, South Yarra. You’ll be in good company with Olivia Newton John visiting the store during her most recent trip to Australia, buying a lot of pieces including a Chanel backpack! Make sure you also check out the Parisian Street Society blog and Facebook page for stock updates and wardrobe inspiration.
