Merci Merci1 The opening of the concept store MERCI by Marie France and Bernard Cohen, founders of the childrenswear couture house Bonpoint has caused a minor Parisian sensation.

At first glance the store could be mistaken for an Urban Outfitters with its eclectic mix of color and clothing . This 1000m2 loft comprises a literary café, a florist, a combination of furniture and clothing - both new and rare vintage finds - at a variety of prices - disguised in a sleek layout. But more than a trendy shop with some serious "bobo" attitude, all proceeds are donated to charities.

A place where you can lose yourself between retro chic and futuristic designs. You can also find labels such as Paul Smith, Stella McCartney, APC and some vintage Yves St Laurent at 3 euros a pop.
