Couture Christmas

We bundled up, filled up a thermos of hot chocolate and snuck out at midnight for one of my favorite holiday traditions. As I do every year, I’m sharing with you a bit of the holiday cheer and special collaborations going on behind the glass at Printemps in Paris. It’s always a pleasure to see what they will come up and this year’s Dior collaboration was as whimsical as one could wish for. Dreamscapes of a snow and couture covered Paris is just what it took to get me in the Christmas mood…

    Gorgeous! I can’t wait to go to Paris someday and see the window displays. This puts Halifax’s Christmas windows to shame.

    Hot chocolate and the Christmas magic of the Grands Magasins animations, sounds like a plan :) How clever to do it at midnight, without the crowds. I’ll have to think about it!
