Galeries Lafayette’s fabulous art nouveau dome was created in 1912 and remains the architectural centrepiece of the much-loved department store, which is a repository of all things luxurious from cosmetics and high fashion to homewares and childrenswear. To mark ‘100 years under the dome’, Galeries Lafayette is staging a series of exhibitions in the Galeries des Galeries on the first floor, relating to the building’s architectural heritage and the store’s leading role in fashion. Running until 26 January 2013, the exhibitions cover everything from Galeries Lafayette’s history to its ethos of art–meets-fashion. Look out for the specially commissioned souvenir book highlighting the legacy of one of Paris’s most fashion-forward stores.
