Paris is a truly magical city... At Christmas, it becomes especially magical and its name "The City Of Lights" takes on a whole new meaning: all the streets are illuminated and a million twinkly lights glow all around the capital. On the Grands Boulevards, where the main department stores are, the Christmas decorations are truly phenomenal. Each year, the windows become the main attraction for Parisians and tourists alike.
When I was a little girl, my mother used to take me to the Galeries Lafayette every Christmas holiday to admire their wonderful windows, they seemed like a portal to a different dimension, where nothing could ever go wrong. I remember vividly the sensation I had walking through the Beauty Hall, all the scents, the colours and the shiny surfaces made me a little dizzy. Now I am the one taking my daughter there, like a family tradition.
This Christmas, when little girls and their mothers come to dream in front of the windows of the Galeries Lafayette, they will be able to dream in Visetos, as we are proud to present our "Golden Punk Party" display as a part of the legendary department store's festive extravaganza.
For this display - our second window at the Galeries since August - we mixed the Galeries Lafayette's theme for this year "Timeless With Watch" and our own "Golden Punk Party" and created a whimsical, surreal display that will certainly inspire children and adults alike.
Our AW13 collection is playful and contemporary, but it becomes utterly timeless when mixed up with our beautiful Heritage Visetos leather. This is what timelessness is about.
You may remember MCM already popped up twice at the Galeries Lafayette this year: in July for the "Eyes on the Horizon" collection, then again in August to celebrate "Fly With Punk". We currently have a "Beyond Snowdome" pop-up stand on the Ground Floor of the Galeries Lafayette, where you will find all the newest items from our AW13 Craig & Karl collaboration as well as our classic lines.
The small leather goods would make perfect MCM stocking fillers while our bags are of course the most amazing presents... Who wouldn't want a beautiful bag under their tree?
The pop-up stand has put on its festive gear: luminous ski goggles, snowflakes on a Visetos Noir background and of course all our mascots out in full force. I wonder if Santa's reindeers will come in Cognac VIsetos this year?
One last time, because I just can't get enough of this wonderful display... And I am sure you can't either!
Happy holidays, and if you are in Paris, don't forget to come pay us a visit!
