Another billet doux to ‘Merci’ for being the inspirational centre of the retail universe as far as we are concerned. If you haven’t read or heard about ‘Merci’ before, do have a look at our previous posts. Every time we pop in, its a brand new experience as the themes, layout, focal points and product all switch- but overall the mood is still the same- beautifully designed yet functional products for you and your environment, with a touch of humour and lots of personality.
This time, the theme of the store was ‘Urban Picnic’ and this translated as lots of gorgeous tonally dyed, soft Indian cotton and slubby jersey own label womenswear, from bikini’s through to slouchy T-shirt dresses, mixed with easy accessories so that you could be perfectly outfitted when using all of the innovative outdoor cooking and eating products on sale, creating a beachy, holiday vibe right in your own garden or your Parisian townhouse balcony if needed. More of that in our post tomorrow on the gorgeous colours we saw on this visit…
The charitable ethos of this store draws you in, but the product and the creative vibe is what keep you coming back, and back, for more. Every corner you turn is filled with the most beautiful things. We hope these pictures help to share our experience with you.
