In the very heart of the city, close to the Jardin des Tuileries and not far from the Parisian Opera House, the stunning Place Vendôme is a slice of luxury. Home to all manner of designer stores and dating back to the early 1700s, this area of Paris also happens to be where you’ll find the Louis Vuitton Maison Vendôme. Here’s a glimpse of the Louis Vuitton Christmas Tree in Paris façade (as well as what else to see in the area):
Louis Vuitton in Place Vendôme, Paris
Place Vendôme is located in the 1st arrondissement of Paris and is characterised by its wide open boulevards and Haussmannian architecture. The site where the Louis Vuitton store now stands also happens to be the location of Louis Vuitton’s very first store, some one hundred and sixty years ago.
Each year, the shop’s façade is decorated for Christmas. Back in 2012, Louis Vuitton sponsored the Galeries Lafayette Christmas Tree. For those unfamiliar with this festive tradition, each year the French department store’s flagship location along Boulevard Haussmann hosts an oversized Christmas tree in its art nouveau Cupola.
Although there’s no longer the chance to admire this Christmas decoration by the design house, it’s worth noting that each year, on Place Vendôme, Louis Vuitton decorates its shop front with an eye-catching design. Whereas 2017 was a large sun-shaped mirror, 2018’s decorative piece is a quirky and modern tree, draping around the sides of the building.
Things to see close to the Louis Vuitton Christmas Tree in Paris
Place Vendome Christmas trees: Each year, from the end of November onwards, you’ll find a whole host of fir trees covered in glittering lights and of gargantuan proportions in the heart of the world-famous square. Best seen at dusk so as to admire the trees when their fairy lights begin to twinkle, Place Vendome is easily home to some of the best trees in Paris.
La Magie de Noël aux Tuileries: In past years, the most popular Christmas market in Paris has been that of the Champs Elysées. Drawing several million visitors over the course of a few weeks, owing to a dispute between the manager of the fair and the city, the event was actually cancelled entirely in 2017. This year, the festive event is back, and this time it’s held in the Jardin des Tuileries, close to the Louvre.
