Story of the month
Walking in a Parisian Wonderland

This year the mittens were off, as stores played to our nostalgia during the emotive Holiday Season, reminding us that this is a time of family and solidarity. From stars to star systems, Christmas trees to disco balls, playful cut-outs to piles of laundry, snow-filled days and warm cosy cups of cocoa by the hearth, they evoked the sense of togetherness that this time of year specialises in.
The ongoing trend for external facade dressing was taken up a notch, with giant necklaces at Chanel, decorative light spheres at Cartier, compass points and crashing waves at Christian Dior, projected glistening stars at Burberry and much more to the delight of the people on the streets taking selfies.
A special mention this year goes out to the Haute Joaillerie boutiques on Place Vendôme. Their attention to detail and whimsical world-building were second to none, elevating the jewellery and telling a unique story each time.
Happy Holidays from the team at American Supply, Paris!
