Come Christmastime, Paris truly embodies its position as the City of Lights. City streets—from the Champs-Élysées to the rue Cler and the winding rue des Abbesses in Montmartre are alit with festive lights. One of the most popular holiday attractions, however, are the windows of the grands magasins along Boulevard Haussman. That’s where rows of shoppers line up to see what the holiday season has in store behind the glass at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps.
Richard Nahem, our Eye Prefer Paris correspondent, set out with his camera to offer readers a little festive treat—a taste of Christmas in Paris at these two magnificent department stores. (The first three photos are from Printemps, followed by a peak into the windows at Galeries Lafayette.)
Happy holidays … and Joyeux Noël!
