FRENCH FORMAL GARDEN
Echoing 17th Century ponds and groves, the nef of the Grand Palais is transformed into a verdant landscape for the Spring‑Summer 2018 Haute Couture show. An alcove of leafy and wooden plaits surrounds the fountain, elevated at center stage. Beneath the arcade of this junction that are punctuated by the four entrance lodges, the models cross paths. Guests can watch them from the benches on which they sit.
