I’ve walked past the new Ambercrombie and Fitch store on the Champs Elysees before but never went in because there was such a line to get in. The other day I passed and there was no line so in I went.

You enter a gate and walk down this path to get into the entrance at the back.

The grand entrance.

What I saw when I entered. The young man was modeling a coat with a bare chest. They had ten or so young people, really gorgeous looking, standing around wearing clothing instead of manniquines.

It was very dark inside and hard to get any good photo which I found out weren’t allowed anyway. The floors were painted black and there were people working there with dust mops continually cleaning the floors-I think people brought in white dust from the gravel outside.
I didn’t buy anything but it was fun to look.

  1. Linda, Here in the US, the A&F stores are hardly bearable because the music is really loud and the perfume is very strong. They’re dark here too, but the floors aren’t black. Thanks for taking us in.

  2. Looks very interesting! I like the idea of having real, live models model the clothes actually. But I guess it costs them a fortune.

  3. I can never understand the lines on 5th Ave here in NYC for this awful store. And we have the naked models too…. So sorry it is in Paris…

  4. At first I thought this was some sort of joke! It looked like the entrance to a museum or something. I’ll have to check it out next time I’m killing a few hours in that area, which is near where I go to meetings in Paris.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I seem to be constantly dropping in and out now…it’s hard to get consistent motivation going.

  5. Must have had the feeling of a cross between a nightclub and a museum! How strange I enjoyed the visit through your “eyes”! Have a great holiday, Linda!
