From the controversial name to the boudoir-like interior of the store, from the high-end lingerie, and the pleasure objects they sell, this might be world’s sexiest boutique.
Kiki de Montparnasse is the nickname of Alice Prin, a French model and artist who contributed to the liberation of Paris’ cultural life in the 1920s. Same as the muse who inspired the name of this store, Kiki de Montparnasse is for clients with no inhibitions, with confidence, and an exquisite taste for luxury. This place is unique in many ways – where else could you buy handcuffs and dildos polished with gold? The interior of the boutique reminds me of a luxurious French cabaret – one might expect courtesans to appear through the heavy red and black curtains of the changing rooms. Even if you can’t afford any of their pricey pieces of lingerie or fine erotic toys, just walking through the store is a great, sexy experience in itself.
