The department store windows are always a mini stage for visual creativeness in Paris and never more so then at Christmas time! This year my favourite favourite has to be the windows at Galleries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussman. They are freakishly fun and less outwardly commercialised than some of the others, in fact not a logo in sight. Giant luxurious red velvet curtails flank a stage of fuzzy monsters in a rainbow of bright neon colours, collosal fluffy fiends trapped in over-sized glass baubles – perfect for my little people who squealed in delight at the the one-eyed, long-eared monsters peeking out of top hats!
Seriously, you won’t believe your eye! (Okay bad Monsters, Inc movie joke).
