There are a lot of luxury boutiques and other designer stores. French luxury abounds from the Élysée Palace to Boulevard Haussmann. However, up until the 13th century, before, the corporation of minters arrived, only the small village of Roule stood here. A symbol of commercial development and the seizing of power by the bourgeois during the Revolution, the district lives by codes borrowed from the Old Regime. Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is also a place for high fashion and is home to names such as Dior, Saint-Laurent, Lanvin, and Cartier.
