Icon-Icon Opinion :

The iconic store on the Pont-Neuf tells its story in this beautiful book… A family history, of fashion and commerce, at the origins of the unprecedented relationship that the Belle Epoque initiated with luxury and finery!

The Samaritaine department stores are part of the history of Paris. Their rehabilitation makes it possible to deliver a very complete work, abundantly illustrated, which covers the rise of Parisian shops, the work of the architect in charge of the project by Cognacq-Jay, the introduction of art nouveau in Paris, the integration of the building on the front of the Seine or the American influences on this unparalleled complex. With contributions from Pierre Pinon and Simon Texier.
