PARIS — “I don’t think we can call it a store. This is beyond a store,” Ralph Lauren mused, seated in the sun-dappled, leafy courtyard of Europe’s largest retail statement for the American designer — a 23,000-square-foot flagship in a 17th-century town house on the Left Bank here. “This is my dream in Paris.”
To be sure, the designer’s third boutique in the French capital is an ambitious statement, spanning a 128-seat restaurant and four floors of fashion set in a series of transporting rooms: reminiscent of a Nantucket sailing club one minute; a grand, colonial parlor the next.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
