Now on its 120th year, Petit Bateau (French for little boat), a high-end clothing brand originating from France, sailed its way to the Philippines as it opened its very first branch in the East Wing of Shangri-La Mall last April and another one in SM Aura Premier earlier this month.

The brand prioritizes fine craftsmanship without sacrificing style. In fact, almost 90% of their garments come from its own factories in France, Morocco, and Tunisia. Petit Bateau makes such clothing that people would say it is made out of 50% cotton and 50% love!

Although, it originally started out mainly as a children's brand in the market, the brand also has something for you, Candy Girls. Since 1995, they have partnered with established designers like Dider Ludot, Tsumori Chisato, and Carven to design daywear for young adults. In fact, the classic meriniere (sailor striped T-shirts) has been one of the signature designs of the brand since the 1970s.


For their spring-summer 2013 collection, they released a very stylish line with a very classic and nautical vibe. As stated in its latest campaign, "For Never Old," the brand defends the child in all of us as the designs embody cheerfulness, spontaneity, and playfulness. Without fail, the brand still has that certain charm and good quality that has been their signature for 120 years.
