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.
