Dior’s Christmas Windows

I know- several weeks late, and in the case of Dior, several tens of thousand dollars short. But I was completely smitten with the understated elegance of the Dior windows on Montaigne, and I think you will like them, too. And don’t worry- I have pics of the current windows, and they are knock-out, as well.

Usually I try to avoid taking window photos during the day because the reflections are so bad. However, in this case, I thought the reflections added some interest. I”ll show you day and night photos so you can decide for yourself.

First, the gigantic chandelier hanging on the corner of the Dior store was a show stopper.

The windows, with groups of oversized metallic ornaments, were gorgeous.

Doesn’t it look like the ornaments are popping out of the windows?

At night the windows just exuded elegance.

J’Adore Dior

Actually, I have never owned anything that said “Dior” on the label.  But the Dior windows right now?  A. Maz. Ing. Totally. They have transformed Paris windows into an exotic tropical wonderland, with hanging orchids that look oh so real. Gorgeous.

Am I right or am I right? Well played, Dior; well played.

If you could take home piece, which would it be?

Paris Windows

Anyone who has lurked around this blog for any length of time knows that I love the windows of Louis Vuitton.  And really, who doesn’t?  One of my favorites was the “circus” series, which I shared here. They were over the top and just, well, fantastic.  On the other end of the glitz spectrum were the “apartment”  windows, which were up early in the fall.  I totally loved them. Despite being  simple and plain, they really captured my imagination.  Whose apartment? What would she do there?  Can I go in, too?

Time to go get dressed for the day.  Will it be my LV or my Dior on this rainy Monday morning?  If you said it would be my old and faded work-out clothes from Academy, you are correct!

Happy Monday, mes amis, and whatever you are doing today, I know you will look fabulous!
