There's lots of downtime during couture week, which begins Monday, so here are some stores, restaurants and spas to squeeze into the schedule.
LEFT BANK BEAUTY Celebrity colorist Christophe Robin's new Left Bank enclave boasts both premier pedicurist Bastion Gonzalez and facial expert Joelle Ciocco on its books. The three-story, 17th-century locale features oak floors, satin pink walls and shiatsu armchairs. The space also includes a fashion boutique offering vintage clothing, jewelry and accessories by Dorothy Barrick. Treatments include coloring for 350 euros to 600 euros, or $450 to $775, while skin services start from 240 euros, or $310. Christophe Robin, 9 Rue Guenegaud, 75006; 331-42-60-99-15
THE EYES HAVE IT The Spa du Regard (or "sight spa" in English) is billed as a first. One flight up from the high-end Esple eyeglasses store is a cozy room offering a workout for peepers, called Eye-San. Conceived by an in-house optician and orthopedist, the treatment involves eye-muscle exercises, plus a focus on breathing and visualizations to help keep vision in tip-top shape. A one-hour session costs 80 euros, or $103, and there are package deals. Also on offer are two different types of massages for the eyes. One is inspired by shiatsu and uses digitopression and crystals, plus oils and creams, to brighten the eye area and face. The other is based on traditional Chinese massage (with reflexology) to help revive the area around the eyes. Each session lasts for one hour and costs 85 euros, or $110.

ANNICK'S BOUTIQUE Annick Goutal's boutique on the Rue de Castiglione has been transformed into a luxurious spa and lifestyle store. Treatments include the hourlong Soin Castiglione Visage for the face and Soin Castiglione Corps for the body, each at 95 euros, or $123. In the shop, look out for a high-end Goutal stationery collection, plus jewelry by France Thierard alongside Goutal's signature skin care and fragrances.

"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)
