Christmas Display Windows at Printemps

I’ve never been a big fan of the Christmas season, perhaps because I absolutely detest the cold weather that comes with it, but I have to admit that I do like all the cosy festivities you’ll find in Paris during this time. … And if it weren’t for the freezing cold, I might even look forward to this time of the year. During every December as a child my family took my sister and I to the big department store NK in Stockholm to admire the beautiful windows decorated for the holidays. It was always such a special event (my favourite part though had to be the yummy raisin cookies we bought inside to enjoy while watching) and I still remember it so clearly today. Maybe that’s one of the reasons behind my obsession with display windows, huh?

Anways. I couldn’t hold in my excitement for long when my friend Shini told me about this year’s windows at Printemps, all decked out by Prada. On one afternoon, before going back to Sweden for the holidays, I ended up admiring these window displays together with several kids and their parents. I have to admit that it’s not as magical as it once used to be (today you tend to notice all the strings and mechanics behind it) but it certainly gets you in that holiday mood.

    Lovely. We did this recently in nyc and it was a great way to get into the Christmas mood. We have several friends who are spending the holidays in Paris, and now we are thinking we should go next year, too.

    The ornaments are beautiful and really all of these are. Thank you for sharing them! I actually took photos of Harrod’s Christmas windows this year and will be sharing them on my blog on Christmas eve (shameless plug, I know). It’s always so magical to feel glamorous and giddy about the holidays :) x

    Everything is so beautiful, I’ve never been there at this time of the year mainly because of the cold but I would love to see these display windows live!

    Carin, everything you do on this blog is a true testament to the artist you are. Wonderful stuff!

    Oh my goodness, this has to be one of the most darling windows I’ve ever seen. Usually I’m a big fan of the ultra glam windows created by Tiffany’s or Bergdorf’s but I must admit that this definitely captures the magic of the holidays in a whole different way.
