When I walked down the Champs Elysee in August this year I swore it would be for the last time. It’s crowded, chaotic and has been invaded by flashy foreign brands. Cartier, Louis Vuitton and Laduree are a few of the remaining French houses that still cater to the tourist hordes.
For true French fashion houses, head to the nearby Rue St Honore. The stores are beautiful and impressive and are the best places to experience a fashion house’s heritage.
I fell in love with this Lanvin window on Rue St Honore for it’s use of mirrors. One solo model reclines on a platform and is reflected to shoppers by an angled mirror.
