  • Christmas at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in 2015

In 2015, the window display of the Galeries Lafayette are based on “a Christmas from another planet” with its lots of robots, Jedi, imperial troops, R2D2 and Stormtroopers echoing the release of a new Star Wars episode. Standing under the beautiful Art Nouveau cupola, the giant Christmas tree consists of a myriad of gold and silver stars and meteorites.

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.
