WINDOW DRESSING: The rock iguana is playing Father Christmas for Galeries Lafayette this year. A bare-chested Iggy Pop, shot by Jean-Paul Goude, stars in posters for the French department store’s rock ‘n roll-themed Christmas campaign. As part of the festivities, live singers will be performing in the windows of its Paris flagship from Nov. 9 to 17, while Fender will host electric guitar workshops from Dec. 8 to 11.
At nearby Printemps, Karl Lagerfeld will be joined by longtime Chanel muse and brand ambassador Vanessa Paradis to switch on the Christmas lights on Nov. 9. Chanel has designed 11 exclusive window displays for the Boulevard Haussmann store, including four animated windows that will feature puppets dressed in its clothes.
