Printemps Palace


For its third edition of the “Printemps Palace” series, the beloved Parisian department store enlisted the photographic eye of graffiti artist-cum-nightlife impresario, André, for a series of portraits featuring “It girls” and taken in eight iconic hotels.  Rock ’n’ roll royalty Alexandra Richards and Pixie Geldof are featured in André’s own Hotel L’Amour and The Bristol, respectively, while singer Sky Ferreira, contemporary artist Aurel Schmidt, and UK-born model Poppy Delevigne pose in the likes of The Plaza Athénée, Hôtel de Crillon, The Trianon Palace, and more.  A fixture in the store’s August windows each year, the “Printemps Palace” series is always accompanied with some serious fall fashion, cheekily displayed on a rolling hotel luggage trolley.
