j'adore the new store...

yes, ladies and gents the Dior flagship store in Paris has gotten a face lift...and it's pretty darn fab if you ask me!!


when you sell couture you "raise the bar of luxury" so to speak, and this from time to time means raising the bar of your store too...


and that's what they did, by pulling out all the stops...including commissioning Claude and Francois-Xavier Lalanne to create this ginkgo-leaf inspired entry piece..


almost homey in a way with the living room like furniture and the fireplace...could you imagine if this were your own dressing room!!


couture is all about details, and I love the one on the back of this chair!!!


great idea to use a blown up map of Paris on the cash wrap...and through out the store you'll find the artwork of Rob Wynne (mirror-back molded glass letters)...


this screen has constant footage of catwalk shows to keep you entertained, but for me just being able to visit this store would be entertainment enough...

...well do you j'adore this new store design !?!?!...
