Louis XIV, became the supreme authority of France chic, a position from which France has never retired. His vanity, and opulent court led to growth in the manufacturing of fine clothing and shoes, and the invention of shops in which to buy them, and to celebrity cuisine, cafes and Champagne. "King Louis was enthralled by glitter, which increased the diamond trade; and the first night streetlights (hence the 'City of Lights'). Louis also abhorred mud (so streets were paved with cobblestones) and disliked getting wet (thus umbrellas were invented)." An interesting and entertaining recounting of the develoment of France during the 17th century.
