September Paris Childrens Clothing Map

The SEPTEMBER PARIS MAP is in the mail as of today the 28th. Hooray. Everyone thinks French women are so chic. Look at the kids. Super chic from day one. So are the kids clothing shops in Paris.
The Paris mom above was trying to pull her chic kiddie away from this Gerard Mulot patisserie window
Did you know Monoprix has chic kid's clothing?
I would love to buy. The price is right. The size is not sadly.
Back on Paris' streets a white tulle skirt with red tights and navy cardie. Why not?
Just cute if not chic...
This threesome simply dressed but chic. Navy blue wins the day.
At last a selfie even if only in shadow.
Look in kids store windows for latest trends. French kids wear a lot of neutrals just like their parents. 'Sober' is a word you'll hear to describe children's clothing. Nothing to do with the state of drunkeness and everything to do with classe and elegance. Look at elegant brands Bonpoint and Jacadi.
Sergent Major is a terrific chain to check out. No sober clothing here but plenty of fun, color and prints.
A tiny shop with wonderful windows, Billie Bush. FYI many kids shops are in the 6 arrondissement.
A must visit and la creme de la creme is concept store, Bonpoint at 5 rue Tournon, 75006
Bonpoint LOVES sheep by the way. This store is in a mansion with many, many rooms of treasures.
The clothing is elegant, priced accordingly but beautifully presented and worth visiting even if you don't have kids. A brilliant presentation of the brand and stunning publications you can take away too.
million and one sketches later that only took me 3 weeks to do. *note there are many sheep.
Thank you Google for your fab research images.
Scrapes of doodles kept getting lost. Another reason the Sept map is late. My non-existent cat also knocked over the alarm I don't have.
I took many shots of rentRée signs so maybe next September I will spell it correctly? Thanks for all the corrections PBers.
Ta Da. Huge sigh this is done and on its way to you. Thank you for your patience. Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast!

  4. I love this map. This had to have taken a lot of time to do but first just putting it together.


  5. Love your card (at the end!) ;-) Well done! :)

  6. Love the map. It has so much detail. Parisian children really look cute especially in their red coats. Monoprix does have cute children's clothes if they carry clothes. Bought a cute shirt at the BHV with a Union Jack flag for a grandson. He and his mother liked it till they went to take a picture outside and it had a little glitter. I had bought a girls. At least know a little french if shopping. Good job Carol.

  7. This was so much fun..thanks

  8. That would make the MOST AWESOME giftwrap for baby and children's presents!


Love hearing from you
