Buy Designer, Do Good at New Paris Store
If you still have the disposable income to buy Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Stella McCartney, you might also want to buy a plane ticket to Paris and visit a new store in the Marais called Merci. The shop is the brainchild of high-end childrenswear designers Bonpoint, who decided to use their fashion industry muscles to do a little good in the world. They’ve stocked their store with custom pieces by some of the world’s most coveted designers, donating 100% of the profit to a children’s cause in Madagascar (does anyone know which one? Would love a link).
We love to see people doing good in the world, using their connections and expertise to help those in need. But the IHT might describe this venture best: “The shop…gives luxury customers exactly what they need right now – guilt-free shopping.”
