Cool French clothes for Kids

If you’re bringing home clothes for kids in the family, there’s no place like Paris for finding cool kids clothes – especially in September for ‘Back to School’ or ‘La Rentree’ as we call it here.

Just like their Parisian parents, kids are going to school a lot more casual these days, but little girls – and their moms still like to wear dresses sometimes. Yes, even in Paris parks.

Khaki and camouflage green with a hint of orange are very big this fall in shop windows. You’ll find that French kids’ clothes tend to appear in more muted and sophisticated colors.

Here’s a rundown on the well – known kids shops you’ll find in Paris, starting with some of the chic spots to shop:

You may remember in a past post I mentioned IKKS. IKKS is definitely a hot label – for kids (and for their Moms as well). You’ll want to check out their new store that just opened at
114 Champs Elysees.

More IKKS branches:
6 Rue Rosiers 75004
13 Rue Vavin 75006
14 Rue Passy 75016
12 Rue Sevres 75007
129 Rue de la Pompe 75116
140 Rue Rivoli 75001

Where does Parisgirl do her shopping for kids?

I really like Mini Junior at 114 Blvd. Montparnasse, simply because the reception is always friendly. You can find quality clothing here and designer brands such as Kenzo which will delight Parisian Moms just as much as the kids. Mini Junior is a small boutique so you won’t find a vast inventory, but everything is handpicked to mix and match well.

Mini Junior
114, Boulevard Montparnasse
75014 Paris
Tel. 01 43 22 05 30
