Reciproque, founded by Nicole Morel in 1978, is the largest luxury consignment store in Paris. Couture designer brands from all over the world are sold at Reciproque.
The fashion mall measures 7,500 square feet and comprises six boutiques adjacent to one another along the Rue de la Pompe. The designer labels include Escada, Marcel, Trussardi, Armani, Costume National and Yves Saint Laurent to name just a few. Merchandise in the boutiques is organized by the designers. So it is easy to beeline to your favorite designers and search for the best bargain items.
Three of the boutiques sell luxury designer clothing and accessories for women. N*93 houses a large selection of cocktail and evening dresses, accessories and lingerie. N*95 consists of two floors of couture outerwear, sportswear, shoes and hats. N*101 is also two floors, and sells leather goods, scarves, costume jewelry, swimwear, leather clothing and more.
Prices are very rational. For example, Chanel blouses in excellent condition are priced at less than 150 Euros while Prada handbags in pristine condition are retailed at a price of 300 Euros.
