Swiss binding. Publisher's description: Founded in Paris in 1975, Bonpoint creates children's clothes that embody Parisian elegance, excellence, and the playful spirit of childhood. Under artistic director Christine Innamorato, teams of expert stylists, designers, cutters, patternmakers, and graders cut and measure cottons, canvases, and woolens and create Bonpoint's iconic A-line dresses, embroidered shirts, "grandpa" vests, Liberty bloomers, and more. Behind-the-scenes photographs reveal unsurpassed quality, perfect proportions, and flawless finishing -- true high fashion for babies, children, and teens. Bonpoint attracts customers such as Michelle Obama, Beyonce, Kate Moss, and Jane Birkin, whose children have all worn the brand. In this book, a random stroll through Bonpoint's offerings and boutiques, as well as a look at the creative imagination of Christine Innamorato at work in her sketchbooks, shows that children's clothing can truly be high fashion.
