I go into Le Louvre Apple store all the time.
Adjacent to Apple is the new Printemps Louvre branch open about 10 days
An extended gallery of the Louvre showing 6 international artist's creations interpreting the handbag amongst the merchandise.
Fanciful harmless animals greet you at the door.
Maybe not so harmless..
The giant purse is perfect.
Wonder if you can sleep in it?
The pattern? Witty broken plastic chips. Trés plasticy.
A melting handbag. That's happened to me.
Bear inside my bag.
Happens all the time.
Fun animals everywhere.
And you can TAKE PICTURES! Are they thinking Louvre visitors are not going to put their iPhones/cameras away once they enter? Plenty of smiles all around from staff. Very nice.
Karl has cats onboard and Marc has catty iPhone covers.
There's even a mini park with bench to rest your Louvre-weary feet (instead of inside the Apple store). Can you bring your lunchbag too?
A classic Longchamps boutique is inside the store.
There are perfume and makeup boutiques too. I didn't get up to the second floor.
Roget et Gallet has beautiful displays
You can depart le Louvre through the Richelieu wing and go out the portal that opens onto Palais Royal. *By the way you DO NOT NEED a ticket to enter this way (minus the crowds)...I was mistaken.
*PB POSTING may be spotty for a bit till I get my new wifi set up. Please stand by PBers ;)) Tanks.
