Antoine et Lili designer clothing and accessories – Paris and beyond

Oh my! It is SO tiring to pull your head out from under a rock, but – Voila! – I have done so, only to discover serendipity in the form of Antoine et Lili. Truly, the quirky, original boutique has been creating artisanale women’s and children’s clothing, accessories, objects and curiosities since 1994. They ‘mix it up’ with urban, ethnic, colorful and sassy touches; and they’ve done so at such a successful clip, that they have opened sixteen stores since 1997.

The first, mais oui, was on the rue des Martyrs on Montmartre. Now Antoine et Lili enjoys several Parisian addresses, as well as stores in Aix-en-Provence, Bordeaux, Marseille, Lyon, Toulouse, Strasbourg, Nantes and Lille. That’s quite enough to gain my attention, but I think it was an airy jupe with delicate pleats that first captured my fancy.

As they say, you can spot the stores ‘a mile away’, with bright pink (bobo designer women’s clothing), green (children) and yellow (‘hip’ home décor) storefronts. Perhaps, that’s their version of “Shopping for Dummies”, as you really can’t miss the object (or store) of your affection.

Expect to find timeless clothing – silk tops, thick cardigans, wrap dresses and coats – and kitschy accessories with Mongolian, Indian and Chinese influences. Add a kaleidoscope of other things, from Russian dolls and ceramic bunnies to boots, lamps, hats and figurines.

Colorful storefronts invite your exploration

For a woman like me, who throws shame on her feminine counterparts by not favoring lots of shopping, Antoine et Lili exudes enough charm and surprising finds to make the outing a genuine source of entertainment!

We’d love to hear from you!
