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.
