Nathalie Garçon - Galeries Vivienne


I am sure that you do not have to wonder how I selected this boutique for a photo...

Yes, it was initially the red walls...
and then the amazing hand-blown glass chandelier...

It was not until I got home that I discovered this delightful grand couturier, Nathalie Garçon, who created her own line in 1989 after making a name for herself with Cacharel.  Follow the link to see her website, to read more about her collaborations in many areas, and I think that you will love the music on her home page.... "Autrefois"

What a feast of colours, gorgeous!

Cacharel is on my favorites list. As a teenager I wore their Anaïs perfume. Come to think of it, I feel kind nostalgic now! (I was still living in Rome back then.)

What a feast for the eyes! I love the way the clothing on the tables picks up the colorsmofnthe wall and rug. I would live to do a little lèche vitrines avec vous!

Harriet said...

Such an inviting store front! You have photographed it beautifully.

Do some of the bold colors of the designs on her website surprise you?

I like her Spring/Summer collection. Has a rather 70/s feel. Nathalie doesn't seem to be as "cutting edge" as most. Autrefois was lovely. I let it play over and over while I worked!

Fun capture! Love all the colors and lights. The link to the music on Nathalie's website was an extra bonus -- quite nice.

Yes, I can certainly see why this place drew your excellent eye! I'm sometimes a bit intimidated by "designer" shops, but this one looks inviting.

Kris said...

Beautiful shop. Just peering in the windows can give you a thrill! Not big on the what I think are the orange stripes in the rug but other than that it's gorgeous.

Chrissa @ a tad bit creative said...

Wow, it looks quite stunning!

Jack said...

It looks like quite an inviting place, and I can understand why you were drawn to the red wall. So, Genie, what did you buy here?
