Bonjour was created in 2014 by Anne Millet. A stylist in children's fashion for over 20 years, she wanted to create a more personal universe, one influenced by a love of travel and the colours and textures found in far flung flea markets.

Bonjour is a family business - Anne and her partner Yorick joined forces to help develop the brand, together creating the trademark aesthetic and imagery that is so loved by parents and their children the world over.

We are delighted to be stocking Bonjour here at Junior Edition for our third season now and truly believe that Anne and Yorick have created something really quite magical. Each season they produce the most beautiful collection of clothing showcasing traditional techniques such as embroidery, smocking, quilting and block-printing, all expertly produced by hand in collaboration with their partners in India.

Each limited edition Bonjour collection offers retro-shaped clothing and accessories in exclusive prints on linens and, as with the case with any item that has been handcrafted, each piece is unique in its own small way. Differences to be embraced as part of the beauty of working with natural materials and traditional techniques.

SS22 is our biggest collection yet and comprised of 55 styles at launch  - as always with this highly coveted brand some styles and sizes sold out almost as soon as we went live but there are still so many incredible pieces to choose from in 13 print styles - Tropical, Small Pastel Flowers in White, Pink and Violet, Purple and Ecru Gold Polka Dot, Tie Dye, Pink Stripe, Violet Gingham, Pink Dip Dye, Purple Flower Stripe, Purple Check and Ikat.

New styles for the season include a re-worked apron dress which I absolutely adore. The basic shape is still effectively the same and those cute pockets still feature but this years designs showcase an amazing new neck and collar with smocking and pretty embroideries.

You'll also find some gorgeous pieces for women. I had two blouses last summer that I ended up reaching for all the time so I knew I'd be back for another this season! It was so hard to choose between the three prints but I eventually settled on the purple check. It's such a flattering cut - ever so floaty and great for keeping cool in hot weather without having go bare armed.  Choose from small and medium  - I'm a UK dress size 12 (or so) and 5'8" and find the medium the best fit but the loose cut makes is suitable for a wide range of heights and body shapes.

As well as clothing you must check out the dolls clothing, bags, pillowcases and tablecloths - I love that these gorgeous prints and fabrics are available in a wide range of accessories for use in and outside of the home.

Bonjour, a taste of elsewhere with the scent of yesteryear, online now and in-store for a limited period.
