    Printemps Paris Holiday Windows

    Retail Remedy: The world of Dior for the holidays. Richard Nahem continues to bring us his tour of  Paris Holiday Windows I adore the Printemps windows this year but I have a slight problem with them. As fun and imaginative as they are, they symbolize promoting a brand rather than the spirit of Christmas.
