Shinzi Katoh & Paddington Bear at Colette

IMG_2336Last month, while meandering around the first arrondissement, I decided to pop into Colette to see if I could find any last-minute Christmas presents. I went downstairs to the water bar for a drink, when to my surprise, I came across a little Paddington Bear wonderland instead!


Japanese illustrator Shinzi Katoh and Colette joined together to host a children’s English goûter, or snack time, with Paddington Bear, in celebration of the upcoming 2014 movie release.  Katoh created a Paddington Bear- and Colette-inspired wallpaper print, which lined the downstairs walls.  The children got their portraits done by Katoh and had a cooking class with the renowned food blogger, Mimi Thorisson from Manger

I loved this unexpected sweet moment. (I’m always happy when cupcakes are involved!) It was beautiful to see one of my favorite childhood stories come to life in Paris.
