PARIS — The swords are drawn in the increasingly spirited war between the department stores here.
Printemps, the Boulevard Haussmann store controlled by billionaire François Pinault, who also controls Gucci Group, has burnished the luxury goods floor it christened last year by adding new in-store shops, including Bottega Veneta and Tiffany, slated to open in time for Christmas. It is also expanding its beauty offering and opening a new home furnishings department this month. Last month, it finished a major revamp of its lingerie department.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
