If YOU ARE IN OR VISIT PARIS ..NOW

   

The Paris eponymous department store Le Bon Marché celebrates its 160th anniversary.

The entire store is decorated with a black and white illustration decor reminiscent of its 19th century origins. For the occasion, exclusive products have been issued and Catherine Deneuve is featured in an short film and she has been ‘cartooned’ for the window displays.

Do not also miss the exhibition recapping the store’s owners history. Fascinating!
