The rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is a street located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France. Relatively narrow and nondescript, especially in comparison to the nearby avenue des Champs Élysées, it is cited as being one of the most luxurious and fashionable streets in the world thanks to the presence of virtually every major global fashion house, the Élysée Palace (official residence of the President), the Hôtel de Pontalba (residence of the United States Ambassador to France), the Embassy of Canada, the Embassy of the United Kingdom, and numerous art galleries.

The rue Saint-Honoré, of which the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is now an extension, began as a road extending west from the northern edge of the Louvre Palace. Saint Honoré, Honorius of Amiens, is the French patron saint of bakers.

Until the 18th century, a few villages were dispersed in a rural area that extended west of the Louvre. The main street (a dirt road) of Roule, one of the villages, became rue Neuve-Saint-Honoré; it was lined and surrounded by a few mansions. The passage was upgraded in the 12th century to accommodate the increasing traffic from Paris's central market, Les Halles, to the outer villages. (The market was moved in 1971 from the center of Paris to the suburb of Rungis.)

The road extended to the edge or gate of Paris. The passage was renamed rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré when the village became an official suburb of Paris; (foris burgem in Latin means "outside the city"). Originally, the passage extended to the Forêt de Rouvray ("oak forest"), which covered a vast area west of Paris. Remnants of it are the Bois de Boulogne, as well as the 5,100 ha Forêt Domaniale de la Londe-Rouvray in Normandy.

The rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré was incorporated into Paris's city limits in 1860.

Contemporary Paris

The newest styles in Paris can come from any number of arrondissements[1] but, depending on tradition, the reliable gauge of style in Paris and high style can be found along 10 blocks of rue Saint-Honoré, from rue Cambon to rue des Pyramides.[2]
