Although the people of Bordeaux are known for their relatively restrained dress style, they nevertheless keep abreast of all the latest trends and don't hesitate to adopt the more elegant styles that are destined to become "classics". Nothing could be simpler, with all the finest boutiques in a fairly limited zone in the city centre. Designer garments and footwear, decorative objects, cosmetics, bookshops and second-hand designer shops: give yourself a good day for a little stress-free shopping spree.
