The new cool at Galeries Lafayette

At Galeries Lafayette, a circular and more responsible creation is being spotlighted from April 19 to June 26, through a wide-ranging initiative dubbed “The New Cool”. Karine Viel, the Director of Sustainable Development at Galeries Lafayette, outlines the approach: “Circularity means adding value back into things, designing with the product’s second life already in mind”. To bring this concept to life, Galeries Lafayette is buzzing with initiatives: a pop-up offering personalized advice, clothing repair workshops, and a Jaiio consignment sale (which also has its own store at 10 rue du Jour in the 1st arrondissement), talks with committed designers (for instance, on April 20, Patagonia, Veja, Ecoalf will discuss whether a brand can become a symbol of a more responsible lifestyle)…
