As part of his ambitious plans to take the French capital by storm, Roberto Cavalli has opened a boutique on Avenue Montaigne. And, while the store may seem a teaser for the house's seven-level flagship, which is expected to bow on Rue Saint-Honoré next year, the 5,400-square-foot space is notable in its own right.

"I want to have a hot spot in the French capital because this marvelous city is an unquestionable style epicenter," said Cavalli. "Everything here oozes chic and elegance and, as a designer, I'm hugely inspired by Paris."

The women's collection is located on the second level of the store, which boasts a brass-covered elevator, ivory-toned floors and brass- and gold-leaf-plated walls. A plethora of inviting furniture, such as brocade and shantung sofas and crocodile skin-covered units, enhances the luxurious vibe, as does a VIP room for select clients. Roberto Cavalli, 53 Avenue Montaigne, Paris; +33-1-5688-3770.
