Budding socialites enjoyed a day out at the child-friendly launch party for the opening of French children's shop Kaloo at the Prince's Building last month.

The store, which sells clothes, furniture and accessories for infants and toddlers, threw open its doors for the party and attracted just as many children as it did adults.

Naturally, the usual cocktails were forgone in favour of delicious sugar-filled macaroons.

Shop owners Eric and Michele Panciulo welcomed guests, assisted by their sons Lukas and Eduoard.

French Consul General Jean-Pierre Thebault and wife Aurore showed off their new baby son, while Dorothee Delage arrived with her two children, Alexandrine and Uylees. Victoria Chan and Damien Dernoncourt also attended.
