Christmas windows in department stores
What are we doing in Paris as the holiday season approaches? We rush along the illuminated windows of department stores! At Galeries Lafayette, Le Printemps, Le Bon Marché, Le BHV… a fairy tale of lights and colours, a host of unusual creatures colonise the front. Don’t ignore this pleasure: nothing like it to put glitter in your eyes and dream in your head!
Galeries Lafayette At Christmas, children are kings! They are the ones who imagined the eleven little heroes who populate the windows of Galeries Lafayette. At the end of a drawing competition, Sacadot, Sacrifor, Sapique and the others were chosen, drawn and modelled in 3D to animate “La Fabrique des Rêves”. Discover them through different skits evoking the highlights of Christmas.
Printemps A little further on Haussmann Boulevard, the magic continues behind the Spring windows. Here the heroes are called Jules and Violette. Follow them on a dreamlike journey through a thousand enchanting landscapes: frosty valley, rose garden or delight workshop… A whole joyful and colourful world where adorable puppets come to life.
Le Bon Marché Another atmosphere at Le Bon Marché. Here Christmas smells like a Christmas tree: he is this year’s star. The scenography, a bit crazy, surprises or makes you smile. It’s not that often you’ll see firs playing cheerleaders, spiking on Swan Lake or dancing the French cancan!
BHV Supercalifragilistic expialidocious! The BHV is now on English time and invites young and old alike for a Fabulous Christmas with Mary Poppins. Accompanied by her penguins, the famous nanny promises you a shower of magic and surprises. Rendez-vous in front of the windows of the rue de Rivoli.
To be discovered until the end of December-early January.
