This Christmas, Galeries Lafayette invites young and old alike to escape to distant lands by taking a fantastic voyage around the world. Climb aboard alongside Céleste, a young intrepid explorer, who discovers a hybrid aeroplane from another age on the roof of a Parisian department store. It belongs to Jules Védrines, the daring pilot who successfully landed on the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann one hundred years ago. Guided by chance and the stars, she travels the globe meeting some fantastical characters along the way. From snow-covered jungle to wonderful polar bear village and via the desert too, she brings back thousands of gifts in her magic trunk, souvenirs of faraway lands. Her extraordinary odyssey ends in Paris, under the lights of Galeries Lafayette’s Giant Christmas Tree.
