Les grandes magasins

Printemps, Galerie Lafayette, Le Bon Marche are the grandes magasins (big stores) in Paris. They are like a Nordstrom or Nieman Marcus except inside they have other stores without walls. Like on the women’s clothing level they have Yves Saint Laurent, Armani, The Kooples and Zadig & Voltaire in sections of one level. All of which you can normally find in individual stores on the street.

And like most big department stores they have holiday scenes in the display windows over Christmas. I KNOW it is just past Christmas and we just took our wreath down but they are so stylish and funny how it is supposed to be for the kids, but really it’s not.

These photos are from when the theme was Russia.

And one for the kids!
