Le Bon Marché


- 01/09/2016 -

As LAPS participates in the "Paris!" Exhibition held at Le Bon Marché, LAPS tells you a little more about the history of this great mythical establishment.

In 1852, Le Bon Marché opened its doors for the first time under the direction of Aristide Boucicaut. From then on, the store has been dedicated to presenting a selection of exceptional and specialized products, bringing together the collections of French and foreign designers, and is the place to be for Parisian trends. 

But Le Bon Marché isn't just any store. Thanks to its tea rooms and shows, it became a place of sharing and pleasure that charmed the bourgeoisie at the time. It is also one of the pioneers in the development of customer relations. Each person is accompanied so as to make his or her experience in this unique place unique. In literature, Le Bon Marché inspired Zola in writing his novel Au bonheur des dames which relates the habits of Parisian women in department stores. After Tokyo, Rio and Brooklyn, Le Bon Marché honours the creators of the City of Light, Paris.

For this occasion, LAPS will present a selection of its best products from September 2 to 15 at 24 rue de Sèvres 75007.
