PARIS, Dec 2, 2010 / FW/ — With Kristin Scott Thomas and designer Alber Elbaz as special guests, Printemps Departement Store Paris unveiled its Christmas store windows to an eagerly awaiting crowd who also welcomed Louis XIV’s courtiers.
Cutting the ceremonial ribbon, Alber Elbaz unveiled the Lanvin store window at Printemps featuring marionettes which were gloriously dressed by Elbaz.
In fact, the Boulevard Haussmann windows reflect the fairytale magic of Christmas with the marionettes who performed for the crowd!
