Online and in our Parisian boutique L’île aux Fées, we are often asked questions on how to dress children in a classic chic French style.
Raised in Paris and living in the French capital half of the year, here are a few guidelines from our designer and tips from the team:
Less is more
To enhance children’s natural features, sobriety is the key word. No need to over do it by dressing them up to much. Leonardo da Vinci’s quote “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” perfectly reflects this French state of mind.
Avoid superficial details, bold accessories and rich ornaments. Life is party and childhood is meant to be celebrated but with discretion and subtillity.
