The highlight of the Printemps is the Primavera boutique, an exhibit of Summerhouse-style articles such as ceramics, opaline, fabric flowers, bamboo and rattan furniture, a triumph of charming and livel pastel tones, and a huge selection of gifts. Fashion is held in high esteem in this gracious old store of new trends. In the magasin on the fourth floor, there’s the Rue de la Mode with couturier boutiques, and on the second floor, the trend is geared towards hyouthful, casual look. Score one for the wonderful fur department, and another for the wide selection of lingerie and perfume. Both the toy department and sound department deserve attention.The same is true for the lighting and fancy leather goods departments.
