The countdown for Christmas has officially begun and we are all looking forward to capturing the holiday spirit. The Maison Christian Dior conspired with the French department store Printemps Haussmann in order to create eleven dreamy window displays, paying tribute to the city of Paris and the heritage of the French Haute Couture House. The ‘Inspirations Parisiennes’ transport us to a magical universe, where handcrafted miniscule Ladies Dior appear into iconic Dior pieces and enjoy the Parisian heaven on earth, composed of elements of silk, velvet and tulle.

Once you step inside, you will come across the mystery of the Dior pop-up store and a limited edition of more than thirty creations dreamed up by the Maison exclusively for Printemps, such as a Lady Dior bag in painted black tweed, a pair of Dior Chérie suede pumps and a pair of crepe satin ballerinas with a star lace effect jewel, all waiting to be placed under the tree…

Keep window-dreaming until next week, more enchantment is coming up!
