The Most Famous Window Display in Paris
To celebrate Christmas 2016, the department store introduces us to the characters Jules and Violette, two spellbound children who take centre stage as they, along with all manner of Christmas exuberance, come to life in Printemps’ very own Christmas story. Created in collaboration with three esteemed partner brands: Jimmy Choo, David Yurman and Bonpoint; the display promises to unleash some festive magic upon Boulevard Haussmann.
Behind this year’s ‘magic’ is award-winning artist, Peter Diamond, who with his surreal, symbolistic style of illustration is guaranteed to depict Christmas in an unconventional light, whilst still maintaining all of the enchantment synonymous with a Parisian Christmas.
