Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche recently celebrated its 160th anniversary with a special in-store event held after hours. Fashion insiders were invited to the department store to party the night away in a celebration that took over the whole building, from the lower ground floor to the highest storey. The evening’s entertainment was as eclectic as Le Bon Marché’s anniversary collaborations with 160 brands and its offering of 600 celebratory new designs: an orchestra played from the escalators that criss-cross the store and the A-list attendees were treated to canapés and drinks to toast the department store’s prestigious history. Decorations included model helicopters and hot-air balloons hanging from the ceilings and, to end the evening, the stars were showered with confetti.
