Seventy-four dolls (marionettes / puppets) were handcrafted for the windows and each were outfitted in iconic Dior pieces (why didn't my barbie doll have THESE kind of clothes? :)). It's truly spectacular to see the craftmanship that went into making these displays and dolls. I've included several short videos below. They're in French, but just watching them is fascinating.
Dior also opened a pop-up shop inside Printemps. There you will find all kinds of exquisite Dior items, plus a special edition snow globe and advent calendar. Marion Cotillard unveiled the fabulous window display and specialty shop November 9th.
A BIG thank you to Out and About In Paris Blog for these pictures! Her pics were the best I've spotted on the web so far for this event and if you would like to see even more please take a look at her Facebook page. It's fabulous!
I'm not very familiar with the department stores in Paris, France. Have you heard of or shopped at Printemps? What do you think of this collaboration? Is this magical or what? Dolls, hot air balloons, cotton candy ahem candy floss, lollipops, haute couture. I wish I could be a doll for a day and hang out in these fabulous window displays. Wouldn't that be fun? HaHaHa Have a DOLL-tastic day!
