Rather ominous economic rumblings on rue Cambon: layoffs at tbe venerable House of Chanel. C'est pas vrai! Oui, c'est vrai! A Crime Scene Investigation vehicle is part of a French film crew preparing to shoot scenes Thursday near the Ritz on rue Cambon.
Chanel's 31 rue Cambon vitrines are as stylish as ever.
Fencing, anyone? Perhaps a bit of skiing in the French Alps?
For apres-skiing - or swimming, a warm jacket accented with Chanel's trademark camellia.
At the other end of the street, a simpler fashion advertising the winter sales.
As I was snapping this photo, two Frenchwomen walked by and agreed the paper cut-out dress was "très original."
And I love New York!
P.S. More about the Antiquites Brocante at Bercy later.
