When I was invited to see one of the open men’s singles matches at the Roland Garros (the French Open), I jumped at the chance. I have loved playing tennis since I was a kid and it’s the only sport that really interests me.
For the third year, Galeries Lafayette will broadcast the matches live from their panoramic rooftop on Boulevard Haussmann everyday from 10am to 8pm. Check out the stunning view, take polaroid pictures, and shop the Roland Garros x Galeries Lafayette collection if you’re in Paris during the tournament!
This year, Galeries Lafayette partnered with Roland Garros to launch a small collection of women’s and men’s clothing. I took a tour of the store and then headed to the stadium for an evening match!
It was still a little chilly during spring in Paris so I opted for a cotton-cashmere blend dress by Eric Bompard, a light jacket by Corrèges, a silk neck scarf, and knee-high boots by Carel.
