Seven weeks of the great Galeries Lafayette, Boulevard Haussmann (9th Arondisman) is already facing the Christmas spirit. On Wednesday evening, Parisian department store displays made their way to life by magical setting to celebrate the end of the year's celebration. And as tradition dictates, personality has come to the beginning of the ceremony.
After singer Beth Ditto in 2017, American actress Jessica Chastain is responsible for enchanting the windows and illuminating the famous 35-meter-long tree in the heart of the department store. There is also a Kids United New Generation show.
Another novelty, a drawing contest for children aged 5 to 11 was organized to define the look of characters coming to life in the windows of the "dream factory". Thus, 11 animated plumage animals are modeled in the 3D Illustrator Karascoët and in the drawings of Marie Pommpuy and Sébastien Cosset.
Spring reveals showcases on Thursday
Thursday, it will be a spring transition to reveal its eleven windows in Christmas colors at 5:30 pm in the presence of Laeticia Casta. After selecting the theme of "The Magic Worlds of Christmas," the nearby Galeries Lafayette will set up two detectives in search of Santa Claus.
Spring saw things in great ways. Its stores will be adorned with 170 Christmas trees, 61,233 Christmas balls, and 3.4-kilometer set.
