smoke & mirrors at lanvin | rue st honore, paris

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.

  1. Agreed. Champs-Élysées was way too crowded. We were there in late August/early September and it’s precisely as how you had described it. Not sure if I’d do that walk again either.. we only did so to get us from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe.
