Printemps - les jambes



Printemps


This eclectic and brightly displayed window at Printemps is a collaboration 
between Louis Vuitton and Chinese artist Yayoi Kusama.


The repetition of red dots with the assistance of mirrored surfaces is a favorite of mine.  The simplicity of the design has a great impact with this creative display.

A brilliant image Genie. It is quite fascinating how such a simple design has created such a complex image. Cheers J.

Red and black are wonderful contrasting colours. I'm certainly seeing lots of dots before my eyes.

Hello Genie:
This really is outstanding. Such fun and such a display of talent in conceiving and executing a brilliant idea.

Very amusing. Who doesn't love polka dots. They're so whimsical.

Cela attire l'oeil, avec quand même quelque chose de maladif. On pense davantage à une épidémie qu'a un ornement.

I love it! Simply wonderful! Full of JOY!

I love the pseudo leopard-print spots, too. Definitely plenty of joie de vivre on display here, Genie.

I must say that they have the most interesting and unusual window displays. I wonder who comes up with the designs and how often they change the window displays. Polka dots are in this year...at least in a lot of the fabric I've been seeing. :)

JoeinVegas said...

Yes, a very nice display. Makes you look.

Connie said...

Oh, I love this :)

Starman said...

Classic! Bravo M. Kusama!

TheChieftess said...

Interesting window decor...great shot!!!

Randy said...

That's alot of dots.

Vagabonde said...

I have seen some of Yayoi Kusama’s work – in New York I think. She is very talented and does fun art.

Mary said...

How very stunning! I love, love, love it!

Jack said...

Hah! Window dressers can be so creative!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Vagabonde, you are correct. I adore her work and admire her determination.

Thank you for your comments. I am catching up with your blogs to see what you have been up to!

Bises,
Genie

Alexa said...

They recently had displays like this in NYC LV stores. Such fun!

Halcyon said...

You always get something good in the windows of Printemps!

Cheerful and impressive - and just the right angle.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Such an appealing window Genie, it would certainly draw me in.

SRQ said...

If you explained this concept to me, I'm sure I would've been dazed and confused. But, seeing it...well, it's quite appealing. Good eye! I doubt I would've stopped for this shot, which is one of many reasons why I enjoy visiting your blog.

VP said...

An excellent image of an unusual display!

Rob Mandy said...

Well spotted...

Michel Montbazet said...

Très joli et amusant.
Proche du pop-art, non?

Jeanie said...

This is a fabulous photo! Sometimes I think Printemps does windows better than anyone, but this one is pretty masterful! Nice shooting with a minimum of reflection!
