Cartier - la panthère


This jeweler has an over-the-top display for the holidays.  
The building is washed in red light 
and one expects that the panthers will leap at any moment.

This well-known street was unusually quiet 
which suits me just fine.  
It could be that the intermittent rain 
and frigid wind kept the shoppers at home.  

No, I did not do any shopping here.

154, avenue des Champs-Élysées
75008, Paris

Bonjour ma chère amie,

Une façade chic !... Belle capture... que celle de la panthère Cartier !

Je te souhaite un merveilleux
et que ces quelques jours d'hiver soient des temps heureux !

Gros bisous à toi ♥


Over the top perhaps, but beautifully captured and quite a lot of fun to see!

What were they thinking? The shop looks so great from the outside, why would anyone need to go in??!!

Fantastic light display. I'm also impress with the rings on the tree.

Revrunner said...

Very pretty. But I must confess I don't get the connections. Are we going for something exotic here? We're just a little slow on this side of the pond this morning. ;-)

I guess Cartier is continuing with the panthers in their advertising. I really like the light display ... Very clever. And, of course, your capture is parfait!

I love over the top sometimes, and this is indeed fabulous! :)

The lights really make the building stand out. Beautiful!

Jeanie said...

I think your fabulous photo is far more lovely than anything you would ever buy there -- and you have the memories to go with it!

I love it!

Red for passion, which I guess is what Cartier has on offer. Paris rouge!
