In the spirit of the holiday shopping weekend, I thought I would share with you all the beautiful window decorations at Le Bon Marché, one of the most wonderful and well-known department stores in Paris. This year marks it’s 160th anniversary!
To be honest, I was going to talk to you about the hours I spent at La Grande Epicerie, the amazing affiliated (but has it’s own building) emporium dedicated to la bouche (mouth). Yum! I went there to stock up on fleur de sel de Guerande, and le Beurre Bordier, but I became too wrapped into the wine tasting, sampling of items and life at the cheese counter to take any photos.
However, on my way out, I walked past these windows, designed by Tom Dixon…so my post changed. 🙂
I was probably outside for about an hour, lèche-vitrine and watching the lifelike displays…until the whole concept of beautiful things in cages, in store windows set to music in this gorgeous setting got to me…
I was lured inside (well done, Tom) and found a Bordeaux wine colored, limited edition Chanel lipstick.
