Spring on Bond Street

Bond Street, London

There was a spring in my step when I visited Bond Street- the main luxury shopping street in London. Sales are now over, and it’s all about the new season. The highlights for me were the cut-out outfits at Hermes (who are fast becoming one of my favourites when it comes to windows), a pair of kick-ass Prada heels and the nautical luxury at Ralph Lauren.

The Burberry flagship store windows pretty much consist of golden pedestal blocks, check patterned hanging elements and headless mannequins. The faces of  their spring/summer 2010 campaign, British actress Emma Watson and the indie boy of the band One Night Only serve as a backdrop. The fashion statement is all about pretty macs and dresses for women and preppy pastels for men.

I used to make loads of clothes for my paper dolls when I was young, so no wonder I like the idea taken into these displays at Hermes.

This gorgeous pair of shoes can be found in the Prada windows. Yes, please!!

These surreal hallways remind me of Alice in Wonderland with the countless small doorways. When is the Tim Burton Alice film coming out anyways?

This tiny bit freaky mannequin and Mulberry bags ride a carousel.

We are sailing – in a very luxury way at Ralph Lauren.
