I’m obviously biased when it comes to my review of the Bonpoint collection, as my kids have been walking their show AND we are working together for some time now, but still, with the eye of a fashion enthusiast, I’m going to try to tell you about my favorite parts of the Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2019 show, and show you the best look worn by the cutest kids, and my James and Stella!
With Stella almost turning 5 – and with that her growing personality and ideas on fashion – it’s getting harder to get them in the looks that I want her in. That’s okay. She needs that space to explore and become who she is. We usually negotiate on who can pick the top, and then the other person picks the bottom, and so on. I think to a certain extent it’s okay to negotiate with your kids, just for the sake of peace and quiet. We all live busy lives, have busy jobs, and want to be at least a little representable when going on date night – plus I like to hold off on the Botox for a little longer – so we negotiate. Don’t confuse this with bribing! This I’m completely against, and sadly see this happening around me a lot. Of course I’ve done it, and I might do it again, but trust me; those bribes were only to get that smoothie down, or take a bite of their broccoli. But It didn’t help, tears all over, never doing that again. Anyway, so my point is, it’s hard to get Stella into anything I like her to wear – especially dresses – yet when she walks the Bonpoint show she’s all in. She wants to wear it all, show it all, makes 500 more rounds during the finale and is telling me afterwards how much she loves it… Right! I cherish this moment, and soak up this cute little naughty face wearing the CUTEST dresses on the planet, because let’s be honest, nobody does dresses better than Bonpoint…
Other pieces from the collection that really caught my eye, mostly because they kind of remind me of pieces I have, or are in a current collection that I want to have… For example, if you look at the first image, do you see the girl’s sandals, both Stella’s and the girl she’s walking with? Aren’t they reminding you of those Chanel ones I showed on my instastories the other week? Exactly! And those I want so badly… you have no idea! So, you can imagine, I’ve been envying these little feet for a while now, while waiting for my size of the Chanel’s to get in! Also what really stood out for me, were the bags little plaid shoppers and the woven ones, the visors – very Dior for kids – and the perfect denim pieces! All the denim pants and jackets are like how I want to wear them, and the dress over jeans look – which Stella will love, since she’s more into jeans than dresses as I mentioned – is perfect!
Needless to say, there are a thousand little details that I loved, and you see a lot of it in the “Backstage at the Bonpoint Spring-Summer 2019 show” post I shared earlier… the hair of the little girls, with the ribbon in their braids, or the colours and patterns inspired by cultures from around the wold. It truly feels like a very easy to wear, approachable and eclectic line of summer wear, which we secretly would love in our own wardrobes! Scroll down and see for yourself… and don’t forget to tell me at the end what you loved the most!
