PARIS WITH BONPOINT PART TROIS


Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2018 Charlotte Groeneveld Thefashionguitar

Last year during Paris Haute Couture week in July it was the first time I brought Thomas and the kids along with me. This year, the Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2018 show will mark our third time in Paris, during fashion week, together. It really became one of the first family traditions; we have our favorite restaurants – that are great with little kids, but also still amazing for us parents – the daily carousel ride in Jardin des Tuileries, and, of course, a mandatory visit to Colette to get some of their amazing, but above all unique, toys. But what is it that make these trips so unique?

For the kids the absolute highlight of our week in Paris – apart from their diet of chocolate croissants and French fries of course – is the Bonpoint show. I remember last year – which was actually the first time EVER that they went to a fashion show – Stella kept calling it a “fashion shoe” and James was mostly upset that he wasn’t walking hand in hand with his friends on the runway. I was happily surprised, because, you know, fashion is my passion, but that doesn’t mean it’s theirs too, however this could mean exciting things for the future. I’m not going to lie, I secretly always dreamed of them walking the show. Now, a year later, that’s actually going to happen, which makes me extremely proud, and beyond excited. We haven’t talked about it much – no bone in my body wants them to get stressed about the idea of having to walk the show – but whenever I bring it up, they seem still up for it. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed they won’t change their minds an hour before the show – I will report back next month..!

So here we are, preparing for our third family trip to Paris, but with a house full of family and tropical temperatures that hit the city hard. A morning in Central Park, followed by a fitting at Bonpoint on the Upper East, and lobster rolls plus a round on the carousel in DUMBO seemed the way to go. And so we did…

    It’s a shame your kids get sucked into your social media and now it seems also into the superficial and material world of fashion. Let kids be kids, do you really think they enjoy hanging around in shops and catwalks, if so you have

    e most likely not exposed them to the wider world of what makes childhood so magical and innocent. As an ex model I am very sad that you dream of them walking the catwalks, it is such a deprived world, there are so much more to wish for them. They will probably like whatever their mummy likes as a means to get closer to her, kids are not stupid…

      I knew It was only a matter of time before someone would come in from a negative perspective. And as much as I appreciate your honesty and you sharing your opinion, you have to be very careful making assumptions. Let me make one thing very clear, the kids are asked if they wanted to walk the Bonpoint show after they attended it twice, and expressed their interest very explicitly, because they loved it so much!

      It was not me or anyone else who told them they HAVE to do this. They are – as you say – not stupid, they are adventurous and curious kids, and open to every new experience that can make them grow. That’s how we raise them into openminded and well rounded kids. If they decide on the day of the show they don’t want to walk in the show, nobody will force them. Ever!

    I love this dress and how perfect it is for summer. I am also loving all of these little dresses and rompers. You almost can’t do summer without them!
