Mardi 4 May – 12h : after scampered under the arcades of the Rue de Rivoli in tutus to catch up, I take my left : Rue Cambon. I realize while c & rsquo; is the first time in my life that I & rsquo; put there feet in the direction of the legendary Chanel boutique in Paris.
I'm a big uncultivated in terms of & rsquo; fashion history, I discover, j & rsquo; learn, j & rsquo; listening… But I don & rsquo; there know much. C & rsquo; therefore j & rsquo;'m embarrassed d & rsquo; use the stairs that lead to the & rsquo; Gabrielle Chanel's apartment, j & rsquo; have the feeling of not really deserve a visit. But that & rsquo; matter, I am delighted d & rsquo; to be there for that & rsquo; it tells me that I know this brand too bad.
C & rsquo; is Marie-Louise de Clermont Tonnerre, colorful character and brand memory from the death that makes us miss the guided tour. It n & rsquo; has not his tongue in his pocket, it is a treat. I do not expect much at this relaxed and sometimes mocking gaze focused on that which once occupied these places.
We discover a reconstituted lounge with care : chinoiseries, master paintings and sculptures that sit alongside objects toc, strong memories and collections lions and d & rsquo; wheat heads of Coco Chanel. It is learned that this small cage that n & rsquo; s a & rsquo; casually here, next d & rsquo; a hand of Giacometti is actually the starting point of the advertisement Jean-Paul Goude with Vanessa Paradis. A tassel remained in the mouth d & rsquo; a brass frog n & rsquo; has not moved 40 years old, and the debate on the & rsquo; origin of the quilted 2.55 that takes its origin in the grounds of the sofa animates the brand representatives…
Thursday morning I woke up without dawdle gasping under the duvet as I usually, even if the alarm sounded an hour earlier… I got up d & rsquo; good, excited to & rsquo; & rsquo idea, go to Printemps where m & rsquo; was invited to discover the Christmas windows in preview. C & rsquo; was like a day at disneyland, but better :)
Because I never miss the Christmas shop windows you see, j & rsquo; it adooooore, and even s & rsquo; one must brave the looks outraged parents came with their Mouflets who consider you don & rsquo; n & rsquo have nothing; plug here I am with return every year.
This year c & rsquo; is Russia which is at the & rsquo; Honor in France : Chanel, Victoire de Castellane and John Galliano for Dior imagined small dolls with d & rsquo costumes Russian inspiration that s & rsquo; agitate in animated displays of spring. Here are some pictures of Chanel dolls (s & rsquo; it hides the pictures & rsquo; a small golden panties…), I will let you discover the Dior dolls the day of & rsquo; inauguration showcases !
Me with my camera sneak in those windows to see all these people work was a rather unique moment. While I m & rsquo; excites kicking on my device at all going without thinking small Russian dolls and their eyes, I realize that stands beside me Jean Claude Dehix, the “puppeteer son” that gives life to this little world. J & rsquo; learn while animated displays are a French specialty for c & rsquo; his father who first had the & rsquo; idea to replace the hands of the puppeteers by motors. Depuis, c & rsquo; is his family business which is absolutely behind all animated displays Boulevard Haussmann.
This year is a bit special for spring because its facade was finally restored : tarps that still hide the result will be withdrawn on 12 November at 19:30. For the occasion, spring offer a seemingly amazing show about the famous facades and all night (a sound and light crazy j & rsquo;'m looking forward to it). I'll be waiting for you, do not miss it !!
P.S : the animated displays will be inaugurated Thursday :)
Reminder mood of the principle : // write three words on what the image suggests you (so instead she awakens in you more than what we see in the first reading) //avoid to repeat the words of his cronies, if it comes last is widening more brains :) // use double slash between each word with spaces, to facilitate my task ;) //
