From the boundless creative window displays of Galeries Lafayette to the fashionable Printemps ones designed by Prada, there is no doubt it’s Christmas season.
Since the beginning of november, all the “grands magasins” dressed their windows in beautiful lighting and decorative elements proper of the season. The stunning christmas window displays drew a big crowd, and it´s hardly surprising given the level of detail and creativity that goes into it. This year ¨the Beauty and The Beast¨ was chosen as main theme for Galeries Lafayette, showing fabulous decoration with old style classical clocks, dinning tables covered up in crystal and sparkling glasses, giving a full show every 5 seconds. Each window separated in well-organized section, divided to each scenes.
Meanwhile, Printemps showcased dancing bears holding Prada’s logo. Ultimately, the highlight was the moveable Santa Clauses in suits, indeed very chic and classy like the Parisian Style.
This Christmas window displays are the main attraction on the Grand Boulevards, gathering tourists as well as Parisians outside the well known department stores. The animated elements that move around inside the windows, strucked people with the charming of its dreamy and imaginative decorations. Year after year, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, are creating a magical spectacle not only for children but also for us, the grown-ups to keep the christmas spirit alive.
