Merchants Aime Paris

MERCHANTS AIME PARIS will see the iconic African Concept Store Merchants On Long make its highly anticipated appearance in Paris as a pop up boutique within the heart of the elegant 8th Arrondisement at Amastan Paris at 34 RUE JEAN MERMOZ 75008, FRANCE.


The Merchants Aime Paris installation at Amastan will be a continuation of the successful Merchants pop ups, following on from the 2012 Merchants in London pop-up which took place at the Blue Bird Shop on the Kings Road and the 2016 London summer pop – up ‘Merchants x Okapi’, which saw African handbag brand Okapi host Merchants on long at its London store alongside a host of designers from the continent. The carefully curated Merchants Aime Paris pop up installation will be a truly integrated experience transforming the Paris space into a treasure trove of African design and hosting an array of talks, events and surprising performances throughout its residency at Amastan.

Alongside Okapi other designers showcasing at the Paris installation will include – Frazur Parfum, Halsted, Maxhosa by Laduma, Henriette BothaLaurence Airline, Bantu, Lalesso and loza maléombho

The MERCHANTS AIME PARIS pop-up will launch at Amastan Paris on September 2nd until October 6th and will be holding designer hosted showcases throughout its residency. Follow Okapi and Merchants on Long on social media for updates @okapibags @merchantsonlong.
