Inspiration from the city of love and luxury fashion

Aww yes Paris,  the city of love. Our international Zen, Leslie, taking a short and sweet weekend trip to Paris seeking inspiration from it's lively streets, musical subways, narrow stoned alley ways, historic architecture, and it's famous retail avenue of Champs-Élysées. Strolling down the street you'll see a variety of brands such as; la marque de maquillage MAC, Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss, Guerlain, Hermès, Swarovski, IKKS, Levi’s, Éric Bompard, Emilio Pucci, Dior Homme, Celine, Gucci, Chanel, Jil Sander, Christian Dior, Emanuel Ungaro, Valentino, Malo, Marni, Nina Ricci, Montaigne Market, Chloé, Paul & Joe, Blumarine, Roberto Cavalli, Atelier Renault, Les Rendez-vous Toyota, C42 Citroën, Motor Village (Fiat), Fnac, The Disney Store, Nespresso, Adidas Performance Store, Art Curial, Drouot Montaigne, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, Abercrombie & Fitch, Le Royal Éclaireur, Banana Republic, Nike, Giorgio Armani, Manoush, Dolce & Gabbana, Gianni Versace and more. 

It was the Automobile retailers, Atelier Renault, Peugeot and Toyota that caught our eye with their two story show rooms as tourists and consumers flooded their floors. Ateiler Renault was a very interesting shopping experience considering it is not your typical auto show room. Inside you'll find the Renault Cafe, a life size model of a Formula One race car built out of Legos, models of their current vehicles on the market, including an activity area for the kids to enjoy themselves. They also carry merchandise such as T-shirts and small toy cars to purchase if you're not interested in buying a vehicle just yet. Props to Renault for designing a unique shopping experience for any person passing by.

Trending throughout our window shopping experience we noticed many brands taking on a an urban street style throughout their visual merchandising including the use of digital marketing. Others played on a pre-spring theme incorporating pastel colors, butterflies and florals as props.  Boss by Hugo Boss had a simple yet interesting window display showcasing their tailored made Men's suits.
