Published on Friday, 10 July 2015 in the category Fashion & Shopping

The story of the Grands Magasins department stores represents a high point in the history of Paris. Therefore it’s entirely appropriate that the 150th anniversary of the most famous of these stores, Printemps, should be celebrated in a big way, and you can join in with the fun.

A major event for fans of fashion

An exquisite triumph of Haussmann era Parisian architecture, the emblematic Printemps Haussmann department store is classified as one of the historical monuments of France. A symbol of fashion and French chic, the building is a treasure trove of leading brands and couture creations guaranteed to delight fashionistas and prêt-à-porter enthusiasts. High-end and luxury items are offered alongside the more popular brands, all of which never fail to seduce Parisians as well as visitors from around the world when they step inside this enchanting place. Remember, the perfect opportunity for lovers of fashion and the latest trends to take advantage of the Printemps selection is from June 24th to August 4th, the period of the famous Paris summer sales. For the whole of 2015 the store will be celebrating its 150 years of existence and dozens of designers and major brands have joined in the celebrations by offering new creations available exclusively only through Printemps. When you stay at the Hotel Paris France, in the heart of this most fashion forward of cities, you will be able to join in with the various events designed to commemorate this extra special anniversary. Just wait until you see the floral decorations adorning the façade of the Printemps-Haussmann building, admire the fabulous window displays created by leading artists and designers and meet the store’s delightful anniversary mascot, Rose.
