Paris, the Boho Chic way Part-2

IMG00098-20090509-1033Now for a little more in-depth info of the 1 of the 2 hotspots we displayed in yesterday’s post.

First of all MERCI, an amazing concept store which is also environment-friendly. How so? MERCI is from the people of Bonpoint, who have created an concept store with luxury product ranging from flowers, to fashion to one-off crafted homewear items and art of which the profits go to charity in Madagascar.

Top brands have dedicated collections especially to MERCI. In the shop you will encounter pieces from, amongst others, Isabel Marant, Jérôme Dreyfuss, Marni, Paul & Joe, Stella McCartney, Swildens, Christian Tortu, and YSL.

A  good thing seeing that the top brands are all conceding their profit margins to charities in Madagascar. The place in general has a more lifestyle feel to it than a regular shop. The Charity books section, a very New York inspired place where you can rest with a tea or coffee while reading. Books are second hand, in many languages and come from donations. Other things:

  • The Annick Goutal laboratory to create your own fragrance.
  • An old fashion haberdashery shop where you can buy top buttons, ribbons and zippers
  • The flower shop by Christian Tortu
