New Bonton Store

bonton1It is hard to believe but Merci, one of Paris’ most fashionable concept stores has been out-trumped by a kid’s store.  Just a stone’s throw away from Merci on the corner where the boulevard Beaumarchais turns into the boulevard Filles du Calvaire, Bonton has opened up a 800 M² new flagship shop. It is absolutely fabulous! On over 3 floors you can find clothes, clothes and even more clothes, a book shop (with a GREAT selection of books), a bakery, a sweets bar, a hair dresser, a deco area and I don’t even remember what else.

Rebecca (who used to write for us from Washington and who has, luckily for me, moved back to Paris) and I went to the opening and had a blast. The Prosecco was flowing, there was a huge counter full of hams and cheeses and little sandwiches. It was a great way of discovering the shop and the new Bonton summer collection.

Top-1Oh, did I mention that they also have one of those old-fashioned photo booths with a bucket full of dressing up hats in front of it? We also took advantage of that, though we were the only grown-ups queueing up for it in a huge line of kids…

Thank you for directing me to Bonton. What beuatiful things. I love the change tables they feature in the furniture section on their website. Does anyone know where you can find/order for delivery something this simple and elegant in Sydney, Australia. Jane

just went a month ago, amazing place! I felt like buying everything there, the baby shoes, little dresses, but I had done so much damage before (and not at Merci!) that I got a scarf for my boy (white, blue and red gingham style) that I also put on my daughter too! so cool! That area is great, there’s also balouga, a fun place for kid furniture/design…and a lovely little bookstore where i found great books for my 5 year old son…
