I don't know how many of you know Le Bon Marché but it is one of my favorite department stores in Paris and possibly throughout the world. Today Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche is one of Paris’s oldest and most prestigious department stores, stocking international high-end designer brands from Acne and Paul Smith to Isabel Marant, but its beginnings were rather humble.
Until the end of this year, each floor is decked out with special themed decorations, and until December 31st Le Bon Marché will be hosting a series of exhibitions that celebrate the stores rich history. In style with its 160th anniversary the retailer also commissioned special-edition and one-of pieces from 160 brands including Pierre Hardy, Isabel Marant, Zadig & Voltaire, Comme des Garçons but also limited-edition pieces from Burberry, Diane von Furstenberg and many others.

Le Bon Marché also hired Catherine Deneuve, making the iconic actress the face and muse for the stores anniversary. But Le Bon Marché did not stop there, they also commissioned a short film by Loic Prigent called Catherine Deneuve Rive Gauche in which the iconic actress visits some of her favorite places on the left bank of Paris. The film is screened for a limited time at the store, also check out the videos below:
