I had other blog posts in mind but this week I fell lost for words after the terrorist attacks in Paris. I couldn’t find the energy to write anything but life needs to go on.
Paris has always been in my heart even if I left him for London 9 years ago and I still have family and friends there. I am quite lucky as they are all safe but I’m in shock as they have damaged my home country.
I have always loved Paris as it is one of the most beautiful city that fosters creativity. I have met so many passionate and talented people there. That’s the reason why I had to bring a bit of Paris & France into the UK and show the many treasures we have there.
As you are probably aware if you have read my previous post or looked at my online Boutique, I am only focusing on children’s products as I feel they are even more fun, inventive and delicate and today I am even more proud to support these amazing French brand. They are proud to work hard to preserve some great values
France is a proud country … and that is sometimes seen as arrogance but when you look at it more in depth, we really want to preserve and nurture our cultural richness.
We are proud of our heritage
Karen the designer of Leontin pre-walker shoes was inspired by the French Couture ties and used the renowned Lyonese silk, also present in Chanel, Hermes and Vuitton’s to create her sophisticated collection.
The Prince & Princess range from Bobine is an homage to the French Monarchy as French love this part of our history.
We are proud of our artisans
Unfortunately, it’s hard to compete on the mass market if we produce locally but some brands such as Lucien Zazou are resisting. They’ve made the choice to produce in France to benefit from the Know-how of the French Couture.
We are proud of the French Couture
We’ve learned so much with Chanel, Dior, Yves St Laurent… Fashion is part of our culture and we still have a great attention to details. Matching accessories can be the perfect finishing touch.
We are proud of our language
We are probably still struggling to learn other languages as we love it so much that we keep the subtitles in movies, like to sing in French and also to wear clothes with some French on it.
We are Proud of our natural resources
I am now even more determined to look for the best for Children from my home so keep an eye on Tendre Boutique & sales events!
