Bensimon at Monoprix

Colorful, fun French line Bensimon has a new line out at hypermarche Monoprix. Bright printed clothes for mom, dad, and the kids are for sale, along with a funky line of home decor items-- printed totes, soft coolers, baby bags, and more. Fun gift items such as floral printed mugs and wacky plastic vases printed with goldfish round out the offerings. Go quickly as Bensimon is a favorite of young Parisian families, and the Monoprix line is moins cher than the regular Bensimon line found at its boutiques.

Just got an invite for this that I thought I'd pass on to all the Chic Shoppers out there:
Vente de Printemps [Spring Sale], April 1- 9, at the Loft Sevigne, 46 rue de Sevigne, Paris 3rd. No mention of what brands will be on sale, but it does say Big Name brands for women & men, French & Italian labels at exceptional prices.

new Lancel shop on the Champs

After a long closing for renovations, French leather goods brand Lancel has reopened its doors on the Champs-Elysees [no. 127, to be exact]. With a red resin canopy marking its space, the new shop shows off its handbags, leather goods, jewelry and luggage lines and adds to the chic-ifying of the Champs, started by Cartier, Mont Blanc, and the new LV boutique a few years back. Bienvenue!-- We are glad that the Champs is finally living up to its reputation as one of the most famous streets in the world.
