Retail Remedy: Our tour of Paris holiday windows continues with Galeries Lafayette, which kinda sorta reminds us of a not quite as elaborate version of Bergdorf Goodman’s New York windows from a few season’s back. Or, a tad of Le Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris gone fashionista. Let’s see Richard Nahem‘s report.
A cute polar bear holding a Vuitton duffel bag, penguins wearing leopard ties and sunglasses, an Afghan dog donning a silk scarf, and a somersaulting panda all proliferate the mighty Vuitton.
The theme this season is The Ball of the Century, celebrating the 100th anniversary of the store’s iconic stained glass dome. Some of the windows have ballroom scenes with dancing figures in evening wear with animal heads. — Richard Nahem
