Karl Lagerfeld’s “Noël, Rêves d’Evasion” animated window spectaculars at Printemps were created by Jean-Claude Dehix, a master artist of puppets and marionettes with decades of experience at pulling all the right strings. And spools of it! Dehix uses 32,000 feet of nylon (that’s about six miles!) in each window. The mind reels!

Here is another fun tidbit. During the course of the two-month exhibition, the animated marionettes will strike the same poses five million times. Practice makes perfect? Dehix’s fantastical series of tableaux will be on display at Printemps through mid-January 2012.

Bon Chance!
