Galeries Lafayette - Arctic Christmas

The arctic window displays at Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris recount the epic tale of a family of polar bears who, faced with the relentless melting of the ice caps, journey from the North Pole in search of a new home.


The bears have fun playing and dancing around each floor of the store before embarking on their journey back to the North Pole.



The scheme is designed to highlight the importance of protecting the polar ice caps.



The store also hosts its first ever all-paper Christmas tree, designed by artist Lorenzo Papace. The gigantic tree is brought to life by a ferris wheel and cable cars, and takes centre stage beneath the century-old dome.
