It is in the historic heart of the Saint-Ouen flea market, the largest antiques market in the world, that Isabelle Klein opened “Les Merveilles de Babellou” at the Marché Bert, in 2008.
With its expertise in vintage fashion, it contributes in its own way to the heritage of this emblematic institution, by presenting a very cutting-edge selection from the history of great French fashion designers and brands. More than a country, it's a whole universe to discover in a refined setting.
Indeed, owning rare or exceptional pieces is a luxury when these flagship models are part of fashion history. Beyond the cultural endorsement of a trend, vintage luxury is a dream, a journey through time that meets the dual requirement today of being both unique and eco-responsible.
Specializing in fashion jewelry from fashion designers including those from Chanel, Isabelle Klein has assembled a large collection of luxury clothing and accessories paying tribute to the history of fashion.
With passion, she has developed a precise knowledge of the various internationally renowned designers and major manufacturers of fashion jewelry, enabling her today to be a recognized expert in the field.
Authenticating a collector's item of jewelry means first and foremost locating its manufacture in the history of the workshops that Isabelle Klein masters down to the smallest detail.
All this knowledge contributes to the reputation of the “Merveilles de Babellou”. Close collaborations with the greatest professionals in luxury, fashion, the press and cinema are a guarantee of notoriety, but hospitality and the broadest advice remain the essential values of the universe of Babellou.
