SLAVIC CHRISTMAS AT THE PRINTEMPS DEPARTMENT STORE, PARIS
Chanel has installed a pair of dolls inspired by its "Paris-Moscou" fashion show in the Printemps department store. The two window marionettes, Princess Nadejda and the Grand Duke Dimitri, are wearing miniature pieces from the collection. The two figures are contrasted with giant, hand-painted matriochkas, which stand over 16 feet tall, inside the store.
