While everyone (and their dog) goes on and on about the worldwide economic crisis, the fashion industry continues its retail benefices completely and absolutely untroubled. The semi annual sales still make every fashionista’s delight!
The Paris sales, however, are a bit different this year. And not just because this year Lou Doillon was the sales ambassador. It’s because the overwhelming importance of the Soldes By Paris are slightly shadowed by politics. Because politicians do not agree with the majority of French population over Sunday shopping, postponing indefinitely that long awaited moment to extend Sunday openings.
If you’re a France resident, do you think Sunday openings are more important than the sales? And if you’re not a France resident, imagine yourself a tourist in Paris, on a Sunday, when everything’s closed. How would you feel then? (via wwd)
