PARIS — With its trendy little food shops, cozy restaurants and art venues on every corner, the Marais is the most buzz-worthy of all Parisian districts, drawing crowds of arty types, fashionable weekend flâneurs and international hipsters. Last fall brought an influx of independent men’s retailers to the neighborhood, upping the area’s coolness factor even more.
With brands such as Ami Alexandre Mattiussi, 13 Bonaparte and Éclectic hanging up their hats, le Haut-Marais, just north of Rue de Bretagne, in particular has gone through a genuine transformation.
