From Tokyo to Paris to You

Tsumori Chisato for Petit Bateau

Snowflakes and reindeer and glitter..oh yawn!

Seems like every holiday, we’re expected to get all excited about the same old fruitcake.

This year, we finally get a little something different. Thanks to Petit Bateau’s collaboration with Japan’s star designer Tsumori Chisato, you and your petit princes and princesses can embrace the spirit of the season without looking like you did last year…and the year before that.

Since Tsumori Chisato first launched her own line in 1990, the onetime Issey Miyaki sportswear designer has gained an international reputation for her dreamy, whimsical style. In her holiday capsule collection for Petit Bateau, Chisato reinterprets classic holiday fare and even turns the mariniere stripe on its head for a look that evokes a winter wonderland without beating you over the head with Christmas.
