Last year everybody was talking about Printemps' Christmas windows featuring Chanel. Mr Lagerfeld had personally designed the animated puppets - from ballerinas to air hostesses - to dance around the king of fashion, who himself stars in various forms from designer to photographer.
This holiday season Christian Dior is giving the iconic Parisian department store a New Look, decorating the Christmas windows in a tribute to the City of Lights. A sprinkling of holiday cheer comes in the form of dolls outfitted in iconic Dior pieces, decking the halls with jolly spirit against a backdrop of the French capital's legendary landmarks: ice skating at the Eiffel Tower, at a Tuileries Gardens-style fairground and taking in the sights from a hot air balloon drifting above the snowy Parisian rooftops.
