There aren't many children's clothes shops on avenue Montaigne, but the fact that Bonpoint is present shows just how the brand is now positioned.
Created in the 70s by Marie-France Cohen, it was at the time the first Parisian children's clothing house, combining smart and glamorous looks and perfect cuts with subtle colours.
However, it's only in the last ten years that the name has really taken off, with boutiques in London, Milan, New York, Tokyo, Beverley Hills and Barcelona.
As well as their trademark country dress, Bonpoint have expanded into perfumes, shoes and opened a 1000m2 concept store in a 17th Century townhouse in Saint Germain. Of course, not everyone can get over there, and we think it's easier to pop into the much nearer avenue Montaigne store!
Alain Bernardin founded the Crazy Horse Saloon in 1951, drawing creative inspiration from American striptease.
An institution for night owls, the Crazy Horse Saloon is know for its teasing but tasteful topless dancers, and has been carefully renovating its image over the last few years, with guest spots by stars such as Carmen Electra, Dita Von Teese and Pamela Anderson.
A succession of sassy and glamorous images, Desires combines chic and sensual. Zula Zazou, Jade Or, Psykko Tico or Nooka Karamel will take you into an universe where aesthetics is sometimes combined with humour without ever abandoning the codes of the house.
