BONPOINT

The French brand Bonpoint was cre­ated in 1975 and was the first fash­ion store ex­clu­sively ded­i­cated to chil­dren in France. Bonpoint has been de­sign­ing and cre­at­ing lux­ury cloth­ing items for chil­dren. If you are look­ing ac­ces­sories such as shoes, skin­care and per­fume, and of course, cloth­ing, head out to their flag­ship store on Rue Saint Honoré, one of the most lux­u­ri­ous shop­ping streets in Paris. 320 Rue Saint Honoré

GALERIES LAFAYETTE

This shop­ping dome, with its Art Deco style ar­chi­tec­ture is Paris’ most iconic depart­ment store.

TARTINE ET CHOCO­LAT

Tartine et Choco­lat was cre­ated in 1977 and has been de­sign­ing and cre­at­ing fash­ion for chil­dren ex­clu­sively ever since. Catherine Pain­vin, wanted the chil­dren to bathe in com­fort and dress them in soft­ness, in a chic style. Due to their suc­cess, the brand ex­tended their range of prod­ucts and now sell ac­ces­sories, stuffed an­i­mals, per­fume, home tex­tile and even strollers! The suc­cess has also lead this lux­ury chil­dren’s cloth­ing brand to open a large num­ber of re­tail stores in­ter­na­tion­ally. 24 Rue de la Paix

PETIT PAN

Petit Pan is what hap­pens when a Chi­nese kite de­signer meets a Bel­gian artist. Pan Gang and Myr­iam De Loor opened this very spe­cial bou­tique in 2003. At the be­gin­ning, it spe­cial­ized in Chi­nese prints, but has now be­come a par­adise for par­ents look­ing for dec­o­ra­tion, tex­tile or ob­jects for their chil­dren. 39 rue François
