With the warm weather that we’ve been getting in Toronto lately, it’s hard to imagine that we’re almost in the Christmas season already. To get the ball rolling in the spirit of the holiday season, here’s a look at Jean-Charles de Castelbajac’s work across the pond where he lit up the Parisian night.

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac was bestowed the duties of spicing up the second oldest department store in Paris, the Bazaar de l’Hotel de Ville (aka the BHV). Bright neon lights were added onto the exterior of the store while the opening performance featured Beth Ditto of the group Gossip. His work on the BHV and Publicis Drugstore (pictured below) is much like signature designs on his fashion pieces – loud bright and energetic.

The Publicis Drugstore at the top of Champs-Élysées also got a bit of a temporary facelift by Castelbajac. Bright coloured glass panels were put up in front of the windows allowing for the vibrant colours to stream into the building. The installation, known as Pop Your Xmas runs from November 20 to January 20. To all our readers out there, what has your city done to brighten up the Christmas season?
