THE STORY OF BONPOINT
ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS BONPOINT.
Following the tradition of the great fashion Houses, Bonpoint has established a creation and
production process where stylists, designers, pattern makers, and cutters work
in close collaboration.
Bonpoint styling turns happiness into an everyday lifestyle.
Since 1975, Bonpoint has remained faithful to its exceptional savoir-faire and core values: the precision of beauty, a passion for quality, and meticulous attention to details and finishes.
Bonpoint is symbolized by two little cherries. This charming, instantly recognizable logo
evokes the origin of the fashion house.
Legend has it that all the family secrets were whispered at La Cerisaie, the founders' home set among the cherry trees in Aix en Provence.
