Retail Remedy: Rag dolls & dogs make for whimsy rather than traditional holiday window displays
Not so traditional Christmas, c‘est si bon! There’s nothing that I love more on my walking tours of Paris than to spot the unexpected, especially during the holiday season. Take these whimsical windows, for instance…
Okay, the windows at Lanvin are not your conventional Christmas windows by any stretch of the imagination. Instead of cutesy dancing bears and marionettes gaily prancing, there are dogs wearing top hats, spectacles, and bow ties and bald headed mannequins spattered in white paint. Nonetheless, I think they are the cats meow and the dog’s bark. And, almost as cute as the Printemps Loves Lanvin windows!
Love the Coco Chanel rag dolls and the white eyelet paper trees but don’t love the clothes.
C’mon Karl, you can design better than that! — Richard Nahem, the Paris Insider
