HOT SHOP: BONTON FLAGSHIP STORE IN PARIS by guest blogger Liz
Let me introduce myself; my name is Liz and I live with Lou and our son Flip (0). We live in Amsterdam but love to travel around the world. We are always looking for new local hotspots, young designers and trendy gadgets. Cities we’ve been to we re-discover with the little one and a pram ;-)
Close to the famous fashion concept store Merci is the flagship store of BONTON at boulevard Filles Du Calvaire. The brand has several stores in the city but this one is no less than 800m2, devided over 3 storeys. It’s truly a beautiful store. And so much to do. Apart from clothes they created a shop in shop feeling because of the bookstore, hairdresser and photobooth. I leave Lou and Flip at the photobooth, fully equipped with cool gadgets to create a great atmosphere in the booth.
I decide to have a further look. The clothes of BONTON are available for babies and kids till 12 years old. The French brand, which exists since 2001, is famous for its basics. They describe their style as basics sprinkled with colour & fantasy. I can not deny that, and the flagstore is completely set up according to those standards. Honestly, it’s not really our style. The accessories on the contrary are great. In the store are cool Fluorescent pink flip-on shoes (too bad that Flip is not a girl), a hip Paris tote bag, cool summer sneakers and an original baby gift the ‘Born-in-2014-button’. Obviously I took one of those for Flip!
Downstairs at checkout, the items are beautifully wrapped in an original BONTON tote bag. Right in time because my men are done playing at the photobooth!
Not in Paris but love to get one of those BONTON gadgets? Luckily they have an online store!
