Welcome aboard Air Bambino. Please sit back, open your juice boxes, and giggle freely as we prepare for takeoff.
It will be a smooth ride to Odile, the just-opened children’s boutique specializing in exclusive luxury brands. Owner Camille Cozzini travels across Europe to source clothing (Le Nouveau Né double-breasted wool coats, Baroni christening dresses), footwear (Alberto Fasciani riding boots), and gifts (sterling silver baby spoons).
The weather on touchdown will be chilly, but you’ll warm right up to the gift registry and personal shopping service.
You are now free to move about the boutique.
