Hugo and Victor

I’m not sure when Printemps, one of those famous giant Parisian department stores, was renovated. I did notice a new interior at Christmas but didn’t really explore it much.

I went in to look when I noticed the scaffolding was down on the exterior. It could have happened months ago but I just noticed.

My eye was caught by the name, Hugo and Victor, making me think of the famous French author Victor Hugo. Their logo was a bit like Louis Vuitton too. They sold chocolate and had a cute cafe downstairs.

Other side. I would have tried something there if I hadn’t just eaten.

View of the escalators from the lower floor. Very futuristic looking.

  1. The exterior looks beautiful, and the escalators definitely look futuristic.

    I hope Maurice has fully bounced back from his recent illness.
