The Printemps Christmas windows in Paris have F-A-S-H-I-O-N on the mind.
Holiday cheer is spread not through Santa and his team of gifty elves, but with a little munchkin-cute Karl Lagerfeld doll leading the Chanel team of fabulousness. Take a look… –S.H.
This year the Christmas windows at Printemps, titled Noel Reves d’Evasion (Dreams of Escape), is much ado about Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel.
Four windows have Chanel backgrounds from Moscow, Los Angeles, Moscow, and Tokyo with clever and imaginative sets and animated dolls. The other windows display animated Kaiser Karls(as the fashion flock call him); dolls dressed in his signature look of black suit, high-collared white shirt and dark glasses with his silver mane pulled into a ponytail.
A few other windows have Chanel collections from previous years. I’m not sure kids will identify too much with the Karl dolls, but its funny to imagine a sudden rush at Toys-R-Us for Karl dolls! –Richard Nahem
