Chic Tots – 20 Best Kid’s Brands to Shop in France

By on 05/09/2016

If you’re a parent you’ve probably experienced before that feeling of frustration when September begins, everybody’s excited (hmmmm…) to start a new chapter at school, but unexpectedly the sleeves and legs of your kid’s pants seem to be … shrunk.


Don’t blame the washing mashine – our little ones are not little anymore and they definitely need new clothes.




The children clothing paradise

exists in Europe – it’s France. It used to be a surprise for me since I always thought “Parisian chic” relates only to adults! But the truth is – little French people learn how to be effortlesly stylish even before they do the first step. Because not only their moms and dads look great, but the way they are dressed – totally comfy but also according to new trends – is also impressive! Note that in France designers use way more colors and darker, “adult”, shades than only pastel pinks and blues.

If you’re very busy visiting Paris, Cannes or Nice (yes, there’s a lot to do!) stop at any department store – they carry a big numner of French clothing brands along with widely known names and high fashion for kids (Baby Dior, Gucci, Chloé, Stella McCartney, to name a few).

But if you’re ready for a stroll try our favorite French children’s wear – in all price ranges!

Below you’ll find our list of the most interesting French brands selling kid’s stuff in Paris, Cannes and Nice:

I'm Bogusia - founder of ShopTrotter and Age_Concept Blog I kind of like fashion - meaning: I like to look good, but spending too much time shopping is something that makes me feel overwhelmed. Besides of that - I have a walk-in closet full of wonderful stuff that I use once in 1-2 years... I know, it's outreagous! So I decided to start the Instagram account and try to reuse pieces I own for a long time, without compromising on fashion and style. My new motto is to re-create and re-cycle, instead of buying new stuff over and over. Now I shop consciously - buying only the items that complement my other clothes.
