Paris Christmas Windows chez Printemps

Paris Christmas Windows chez Printemps

Christmas in Paris is probably one of my favourite holidays ever. As much as I love the lights of Oxford and Regent Street and the frenzied vibe of last minute shoppers in Selfridges and Liberty’s, nothing quite compares to the couture vitrines of the Printemps on the Boulevard Haussmann, or the animated scenes on display at Le Bon Marche… it’s always quite an event heading out on a crisp November evening, wrapped up in duffel coat and boots, to view the new windows and this year did not disappoint.

Despite leaving big shoes to fill after the 2011 Chanel windows (complete with mini Karl Lagerfelds!), this Christmas it was Dior who stepped up chez Printemps with re-creations of perfume ads (Miss Dior CheriePoison…) and full-size, as well as miniature, couture gowns. There were masqued balls, ice-skating rinks, unicorns and a complete fair ground full of little Dior-dressed dolls… oh how I wish they were for sale!
