Louis Vuitton Christmas window for Galeries Lafayette

I was recently shopping Galeries Lafayette in Paris (and getting totally lost in store) and it was the night they unveiled their Christmas windows by Louis Vuitton. Much as I am a Louis V fan I was disappointed the windows were not more “Christmassy”.

However the Christmas tree, which is always placed inside the centre of the department store, was beautifully decorated by Swarovski this year.

In contrast, Printemps unveiled their Christmas windows by Dior which featured miniature dolls in Dior outfits for a Winter wonderland theme which evoked the Christmas season.

Margiela meets H&M

Today Maison Martin Margiela finally unveiled the look book for their collaboration with H&M a week after release of the official ad campaign.

True to the brand, the range is full of deconstructed pieces including oversized coats, asymmetric dresses and boyish cuts. My personal favourites are the silver mirror ball leggings (£29.99) and fitted black blazer (£69.99).

The collection goes on sale 15th November in H&M stores.
