Shopping in Paris
 
I am looking for upscale Children's boutiques in Paris. I have a new grand-baby coming and would like to do some shopping while visiting in June. Last time I was in Paris I tried to track down the beautiful stores I had shopped at for my daughter (20+ years ago) and they were gone. I would like a place that sells classic smocked dresses, cashmere and fine knits. I am familiar with Bon Point, Jacadi, Tartine et Chocolate and Cyrillus. I can easily get them in the USA, I am looking for something more unique.

I am familiar with the type of clothing you're looking for but lived in Paris too long ago to be of any help. I put all my daughter's clothing in a tightly locked trunk in the garage. Unfortunately she didn't have children. Good luck in your search.

There is a Baby Dior on Ave Montaigne that has beautiful things. You even get a glass of champagne while you shop.

I don't think Dior sells that kind of old classic good French family style. The OP has kind of named the usual suspects. That isn't that easy to find.

You could try La Chatelaine at 170 Victor Hugo in the 16th (far west), they do have handworked stuff. They don't have a website, this is the only thing online I could find, one of their robes being sold on a consignment site

I'd probably just go to a top dept store like Printemps or GL or BOn Marche.

Or maybe check out Ovale on rue Marbeuf.
