Flashy shopping gallery, Arcades des Champs Elysées, Paris

Walking on the Champs Elysées in Paris, direction of Place de la Concorde, we saw on our left side an interesting flashy shopping gallery. The gallery is called Arcades des Champs Elysées and looks very stylish. This is the home of 40 boutiques and right in front of the entrance is a Starbucks Coffee shop. In the American style, not the Dutch variant of a Coffee Shop. The main area is covered by a glass roof supported by marble columns. One of the shops “Immagine for men” attracted our attention. The style of the clothing and the displays looked so exclusive, we were impressed. The architecture of the complex is also special. If you pass by, you should have a look.

Wandelend op de Champs Elysées in Parijs, in de richting van Place de la Concorde, zagen we op onze linkerkant een interessante en zeer flashy winkelgallerij. De galerij noemt “Arcades des Champs Elysées” en ziet er zeer stijlvol uit. Dit is de thuis van 40 boutiques en recht voor de ingang is er een Starbucks Coffee Shop. De Amerikaanse stijl, niet de Nederlandse variant van een Coffee Shop. De middenbeuk is overdekt door een glazen dak ondersteund door marmeren zuilen. Eén van de winkels “Immagine for men” trekt onze aandacht. De stijl van de kledij en de etalages zagen er zo exclusief uit, we waren onder de indruk. De architectuur van het complex is speciaal. Als je hier voorbij wandelt, moet je zeker eens binnengaan..

  2. Hi Filip, I guess Starbucks is everywhere on Earth! (Even in the most exclusive places, people want coffee...) You asked about the Point Reyes lighthouse - I couldn't photograph it because it was too windy. The approach was impossible to navigate because of gusts so they closed the steps. Hope Tommie and Tessa are doing well!
