Buy Designer, Do Good at New Paris Store

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.”
