Every year around mid November, shop windows in Paris take on a festive feel. The displays of the larger stores are always hotly anticipated. So much so that it’s often difficult to squeeze past all the amazed onlookers who gather to admire the mannequins and animated dolls in the store windows. Galeries Lafayette have chosen Beauty and the Beast for their theme this year, and it features some spectacular decorations. Gwyneth Paltrow unveiled the Christmas display at Printemps. Eighty Prada teddy bears in the fashion house’s iconic colors decorate the window, entitled “CHRISTMAS, A JOYFUL OBSESSION”. From the rue St Honoré to the avenue Montaigne, the displays of the biggest fashion houses offer us breathtaking scenes and narratives – a real explosion of creativity! Go on a virtual tour of Paris with our compilation of the best, most magical and inspiring displays on the Rive Droite (Right Bank) for Christmas 2013!
