Even if you’re not part of the Gucci and Prada brigade, the architectural wow factor of this trio of shopping complexes (called Quartiere ), linked by a subterranean passageway, is undeniable. Highlights are Jean Nouvel’s shimmering glass funnel inside the Galeries Lafayette , the dazzlingly patterned art-deco-style Quartier 206 and John Chamberlain’s tower made from crushed cars in Quartier 205.
