Repetto - IX


Dansez!


The Repetto window on Rue de la Paix is always on my list...

This display in white gives the illusion of petals being blown from a delicate flower.

What a beautiful display! The Repetto windows are always worth a visit.

Extraordinary window. It took a lot of work to put that together.

I do find the reflection distracting — making it difficult to see what you were picturing. But I think I can view enough to "get the drift" of what the creator has been doing.

Hello Genie:
Absolutely magical. When in London we have always found the window displays of Selfridge's department store equally inspirational.

OMG what's not to love about this photo? The reflections are awesome and their display is one of their best! Makes want to put on my toe shoes and tutu and just float away! Bisous chère amie.

Ah Paris.

This is Belgium said...

do they always have such a gorgeous display ? not that I am dreaming of wearing ballerina stuff ... just to make sure

Roseann said...

Gosh, Genie-

I see the floating leaves landing into the Ballet Tutu on our dancer.

Kris said...

Gorgeous window display! I love the tutu on the ballerina. So cool!

Alexa said...

I really think that some of the people who do window displays are true artists. This vignette certainly is a work of art!

Merisi said...

Beautiful! :-)

My first impression was pigeons swooping down in a feeding frenzy.

James said...

I love the display and the reflections!

Melissa, no it is not near Montmartre but on Rue de la Paix near Palais Garnier (Paris Opera). I know that there is another smaller boutique in Paris as well as an outlet.

Roseann, I love this "other interpretation" of the window... With the leaves floating onto the tutu!

I met with my dear friend Virginia in Birmingham tonight - we only live five hours apart, but we see more of each other in Paris than in Alabama... Tant pis

Starman, I agree that the reflection is distracting but regardless of the time of day, I have always found a reflection

The window designers are amazing and I always hold my breath as I turn the corner onto Rue de la Paix... What treat is in store for me in the window of Repetto this time!

Bises,
Genie

very pretty and poetic!

Paula said...

I've always thought that being a window dresser would be a lovely occupation. Love it.

I love it when you show the Repetto window Genie, must find out if there's anywhere in Perth that you can buy the flats, there surely must be! Such a pretty image.
