Trust the French to make everything about taste. Even window shopping. The expression faire du lèche-vitrine translates as window licking, implying that your face is pressed up so close that you can literally taste the experience. That’s how beautiful the window displays are in Paris. More dreamcatcher than product pusher, window displays are an invitation to Stop. Stare. Dream.

“More dreamcatcher than product pusher, window displays are an invitation to Stop. Stare. Dream.”

Rather than limiting the act of window shopping to just passing by, or just a passing buy, faire du lèche-vitrine offers an opportunity to abandon reason and obligations and to delight in a moment full of magic and wonder. A festive blend of color, texture, and exquisite details that fills our hearts and lets our imaginations swell.

The following window displays take you on an enchanting stroll through the streets of Paris and reflect a holiday message of gratitude, love and kindness. Enjoy yourself, and revel in your own dreams.

Go ahead. Get closer. ‘Tis the season for window licking.
