CAP OU PAS CAP brings the best of young French kids fashion designers to San Francisco and the Bay Area.



California style often rhymes with  comfortable, casual, relaxed clothes for us as well as for our kids. But sometimes, it's great to dress them with style and elegance getting off the beaten track.


CAP OU PAS CAP will help you find great stuff for your kids through a nice selection of Parisian kids fashion designers. We met Nelly and Aude, 2 French women recently landed in the Bay Area and who answered some of our questions to introduce themselves, their project and let us know about some addresses they discovered South Bay and they would like to share with you.


Here is what they told us... 



Behind CAP OU PAS CAP, 2 French women...

We are two French women who left our jobs in France in the health industry 2 and 3 years ago to set off on the Californian adventure. As moms, we are very much into French fashion for

children and we rapidly set ourselves the following challenge : CAP OU PAS CAP (Are you game or not?) to bring the Parisian chic in American children’s closet?


We went in Paris to select and meet young French designers. And we are now GAME (“CAP”) and very proud to provide you with their creations.
