If a discerning shopper had just one afternoon in Paris, we’d recommend a trip to this strip off Rue Cambon, with its bespoke tailoring, vintage couture, and what may be the city’s best cheeseburger.

Maria Luisa Retailer extraordinaire Maria Luisa Poumaillou had a shoe boutique and a women’s store. Now all the favorites—Balenciaga, Rick Owens, Martin Margiela—are in this 2,000-square-foot space on the corner of Rue du Mont Thabor. 7 Rue Rouget de l’Isle; 33-1/47-03-96-15

Ferdi The menu at this restaurant, owned by Poumaillou’s sister, is simple: burgers, caponata, ceviche. The crowd—Lee Radziwill, international fashion editors—is not. 32 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/42-60-82-52

Egle Bespoke This custom shirtmaker offers a slim cut and laser-engraved buttons (from $270). 26 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/44-15-98-31

Maison Darre Furniture with an, um, anatomical theme: An aluminum mirror features a femur-shaped frame ($7,125). 32 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/42-60-27-97

Yohji Yamamoto On the corner of Rue du Mont Thabor and Rue Cambon, this place looks like an art gallery, but trust us, there are clothes inside, including a children’s collection. 4 Rue Cambon; 33-1/40-20-00-71

Neila Vintage and Design For vintage that doesn’t look aged. A sixties Chanel suit is paired with a rock-crystal cross from Robert Goossens for Yves Saint Laurent. 28 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/42-96-88-70

Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle’s one-room shop has his full range of sophisticated scents. 21 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/42-22-77-22

Masomenos A graphic designer-DJ and her producer-director boyfriend stock their shelves with vintage Pez dispensers ($7) and Lucien Pellat-Finet cashmere sweaters ($2,800). $ 34 Rue du Mont Thabor; 33-1/42-96-61-78

Pierre Herme In the same building as Yohji Yamamoto, Pierre Hermé’s new macaron and chocolate boutique features flavors—for example, peach, apricot, and saffron—that, like fashion, change seasonally ($35 for 12). 4 Rue Cambon; 33-1/43-54-47-77
