It isn’t quite Christmas until it snows, or for us the equatorial inhabitants, not until the lights are up. So when both line up in a faraway, fairytale place like Paris, you’ve got to give it some attention.
Dior distilled the ideal of Paris, the City of Lights into a sprawling decor at Printemps Paris for Christmas. They drowned the facade in lights and Dior’s motifs, and dressed the windows with mannequins wearing their haute couture collection, but also dolls (74 of them might I add) in miniature versions of the couture pieces. All of this in 11 impeccably designed windows in 4 magical themes: a cosy stroll in a private mansion, an opulent ball at the Opera, a poetic winter garden, and a joyous festive outing. All of which I am unsure if I’ll ever have the fortune of experiencing in person, but am happy to share the visuals here because they are simply too gorgeous not to!
Along with the beautiful facades and displays, the Maison Dior has dreamt up some exclusive pieces available only in Printemps. You’ll find more of the amazing dolls and these items from Dior’s Noel collection here. Also, a behind-the-scenes video here. All, just in time for your mid-day viewing pleasure!
