Welcome to Racked's first annual Travel Week. Over the next five days, roughly half of our content will be devoted to everything you need to know about traveling to and from New York City—whether you're entertaining out-of-towners, killing time at the airport, or planning the ultimate staycation.

Can't swing a ticket out of town? That's where our Staycation Shopping guides come in: each day this week we'll profile a different country with details on where you can shop that nation's best without leaving the five boroughs.
First up is France, which has steadily infiltrated the city's retail scene. We last visited the French store-splosion in honor of Bastille Day, culling all of the old school maisons (Lanvin, Louis, etc.) alongside the younger, contemporary brands (Equipment and A.P.C. among them). The list has ballooned again, with the exciting Carven opening coming Thursday and a Bloomingdale's shop-in-shop from Claudie Pierlot, now totaling a whopping 30 French fashion imports.
