Marguess Sousi opened her first Petit Bazaar branch on Sheung Wan’s hip-hub Gough Street in 2010, and she’s been schooling the city’s littlest fashionistas in whimsical, French-designed chic ever since. With most of her micro-edit unavailable anywhere else in town, it’s little wonder the store has attracted a fan base growing as steadily in numbers as it is in collective height, and now Hong Kong’s most darling name in stylish tot-wear just got even more adorable with the opening of a third location in Stanley, on the island’s South Side.
With snuggly knits and yummy berry-hued dresses and separates from April Showers by Polder, boys’ and girls’ rompers, hoodies, smocks and vests by Ketiketa, and bohemian Barcelona label Búho lining the shelves, along with knitted toys by Anne Claire Petit and a myriad of other ultra-cool brands like Louis Louise, Dandy Star and Rose & Theo, the precious burdens have never looked so suave.
There are back-to-school bags, shoes, lunch pails, and pencil cases to ensure junior is the prince or princess of the playground, plus a range of furniture including desks and beds, so even study and sleeptime is stylish. Throw in a colourful collection of toys and games such as painting and clay modelling sets, and you’ve got the best one-stop-tot-shop in town.
