Galeries Lafayette in Paris currently features window displays with an Asian influence. Designs from Japan, China, South Korea and Taiwan are presented, with many mannequins wearing bubblegum pink or cherry red cotton-candy wigs, sportswear-influenced clothing in bright colours and loads of bling-bling jewlery and accessories. The increasing influence of high-technology and digital games, as well as various sports and medals are referenced in the vitrines, a nod to this summer's Olympic games in China. Visit Paris Parfait again on Friday for more Asian-inspired photos.
I've spent much of this warm, sunny holiday (in France) at Bastille, for opening day of the Antiquites Brocante. I was happy to see some old friends and be invited to participate in an exciting new venture; meet some interesting artists (and by happenstance, a French fan of my blog) and find some very unusual things. Check back later for photos galore.
