Printemps Inaugurates Men’s Accessories Floor

PARIS — The missing piece of the Printemps men’s building, Printemps de l’Homme, is in place with the inauguration today of the store’s men’s accessories department on the ground floor. The men’s footwear space remains on the site’s fifth floor.
Measuring around 22,000 square feet, the contemporary Wilmotte & Associés-designed space features a light gray marble floor and wood and copper furniture interspersed with multicolored Perspex units.
