Twinkle, Dazzle, Glisten at Harvey Nichols Christmas

Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London

The Harvey Nichols Christmas windows this year are absolutely beautiful. They are inspired by the illustrations of Erte and the grand and decorative art movement Rococo. They take you to a  girly fantasy land that plays with scale and traditional ideas of function, and is filled with feathers, glitter, butterflies and showgirls.

I wanted to start with this window because it is simply amazing. The silver mannequin figure (reminds me of sci-fi films) is swinging from a giant crystal chandelier. If you look closely; also candles, cutlery, wine glasses, keys are thrown into the chandelier and the table behind it that is made out of mirror pieces. The mirror pieces are also stuck on to the mannequin, as well as lace- like tattoo and gorgeous jewellery.

Another detail of a mannequin in the same window. Beautiful make-up.

Two black mannequins form a giant butterfly surrounded by more butterflies and cute flowers.

A show girl wearing pink feathers, Swarovski crystal snowflakes hanging of a birdcage. Below a detail that has been cut out of the main picture.

Two green mannequins function as a spider in a giant spiders web with lace and flowers all over.

Hope you enjoyed the journey. Let me know what you think. And Merry Christmas to everyone!
