A new life in the French Countryside

A new life in the French Countryside

While most kids around the world have been back to school those past weeks for a new beginning, this September marks also the start of a new chapter for Belle Vie Paris.

Thank you to all of you that have supported the online boutique, since our opening 6 years ago.
At that time, inspired by the creative vibes of my adopted city -Portland, Oregon- where I had moved with my family, I opened Belle Vie to share with you beautiful pieces produced in small series, to dress your kids and your home.

Since the beginning, the boutique and the brand have been intricately connected with my life, my journey and who I am.

And, as things are always in motion, life took a new turn this Summer as I moved back to France with my family, to start a new life in the French countryside.
We discovered a real gem in a small village of the beautiful Bugey region, an 1750 old wine house, by the Rhône river, at the feet of the French Alps.

And so Belle Vie is crossing the ocean too.

I will continue to bring to you the brands you like, offering beautiful, qualitative and durable products created and produced with a slow fashion mindset, which has been the Belle Vie core vision since the start

And as I am renovating the house and rediscovering my own country with fresh eyes, I would like to share with you this journey and the sights, flavors and inspirations from France. My wish is to bring to you the beauty of my country, wherever you are.

Eventually, the house will be opened to guests and will incorporate all of those Belle Vie's favorite brands that we have been curating for you over the years, as well as our own limited editions creations from the Belle Vie label.

I welcome you to join me on this new adventure.

Thank you deeply.
