“A MOVEABLE FEAST”
During the festive season, the city’s lights blaze. Already we see people working on the department stores’ windows. The Champs-Élysées is impatiently waiting to wear its ceremonial dress. Te diamonds on the Place Vendôme shine more than ever. Te alleys of the Tuileries are, gradually, covered by a thick white coat. Te smell of freshly cut pine trees invades the snowy streets, and despite the cold, the terraces of Saint-Germain-desPrés are always full.
All over the city, stores are busy, flling their shelves with gif boxes and hanging Christmas lights on their storefronts. Visitors from all over the world stroll amid the markets and set their bags in Paris’s luxury hotels. Among them, our guest star for this special holiday issue, the Tai actress Araya A. Hargate is staying at the very chic Peninsula, before venturing on a shopping adventure.
Te holidays are the perfect time for L’Officiel Shopping to award its first Shopping Awards to the stores that have made the biggest impact in 2014, and to unveil 400 addresses not to be missed this Parisian winter.
Christmas is fnally here, and the City of Light is ready to host its biggest event of the year.
