Did you know that French uniform still exists?

blog_af_bobine_schoolboy.jpgThe time when all French pupils were wearing berets and school smocks over their clothes is gone. The French uniforms, worn to protect clothes and hide socioeconomic differences, disappear in 1968. In France, it was the time of the revolt and desire of freedom.

However, there are few exceptions. One state school called the Légion d’Honneur in Seine-St-Denis, some military schools and a few private Catholic schools still required pupils to wear a uniform. The debate of bringing back a school uniform also continues.

The brand Bobine started in that niche area, offered quality & traditional smocks to hundreds of pupils. Bobine continues to present every year to these exclusive schools a large variety of models corresponding to parents’ expectations and children’s needs.

Nowadays, the smock overall is not only used as a uniform at school. Nursery and Primary schools see a real interest to protect clothes during messy play. Bobine makes sure the quality is there but also that the children are comfortable and elegant.


With Bobine Paris, you have the choice between smock overalls practical for Nursery, simple for Boys and stylish for Girls at Primary School.


Bobine has been an official supplier of Happy pupils for 15 years. It is also now a famous parisian childrenswear brand with a classic feel and a contemporary twist.
