Galeries Lafayette Flagship Store

The first major Parisian location to feature in Christmas Flow is the flagship Galeries Lafayette store. In the series, the shop is all decked out for Christmas and features the Galeries Lafayette Christmas Tree from 2020.

In the series, Lila and her sister are shown shopping in the iconic Parisian department store. In another area of the store, Marcus is out shopping with his friend/ manager. The two meet in the most unlikely of scenarios in a Galeries Lafayette security office.

Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré

From the looks of things, it would seem that Marcus’ apartment is located somewhere along Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. This road in the city is known for its designer shops and stores.

Rue Colbert

Keen eyes will spot that the sign painted over in the first episode where the women are pasting their feminist messages to the walls will notice that ‘rue Colbert’ is listed as being in the 11th arrondissement.

In actual fact, rue Colbert is actually located in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris. In the scene, the name ‘Colbert’ is replaced with ‘Malala Yousafzaii’. The pasting of feminist messages on outdoor walls across Paris in big black and white fonts is a real movement and the group is collectively known as Collages Féminicides Paris.

Asnières-sur-Seine

Many of the important scenes in the series, such as those filmed at Marcus’ childhood family home are shot in the suburbs of Paris. We know that marcus’ family home is probably in the 92nd department of France (Asnières-sur-Seine) as the girls drive along the Quai du Dr Dervaux and past Aixam Noël Auto 92 in the first minute of episode 2.

Jardin des Tuileries Christmas Market

Faux snow and all the vin chaud, if you want to visit a Christmas market in the heart of the city, then the Jardin des Tuileries Christmas Market in Paris is the largest winter fair in the French capital. Of all the Christmas Flow filming locations listed in this article, the Christmas market is probably the easiest to visit.

The market and funfair is featured in the first few minutes of the third episode (as well as the ice skating rink there), as it is presumably close to Marcus’ recording studio, where his producer is encouraging him to create a Christmas album to boost record sales.
