This month France’ s premier department store has unveiled its window display for Christmas 2015. Based on “A Christmas from another planet“, the cosmic-themed event portrays an unconventional cast of characters with the interplanetary adventures of Leon, a small robot originating from the imaginary planet of Scopi. The cute and friendly robot and his friends set on a journey to find out more about the light of a Christmas ornament they had watched through a telescope.
