London Windows Support Team GB

Chelsea, London

The Olympic Games here in London are well under way and is the talk of the town, and I would imagine on peoples minds all over the world. The retail world is showing their support to the Team Great Britain with these eye catching windows.

I love the humorous take in these Gieves & Hawkes windows in Sloane Square.

Tommy Hilfiger, Brompton Road.

Ted Bakers windows are always full of humour.

Valentine’s Day Windows 2011

Various, London

I’m writing this post on ACTUAL Valentine’s Day at 9 pm, so I’m obviously not on a hot date. I’m not sulking at all.. But luckily I can still appreciate this day in a much deeper level; on its commercial value. No, it’s never been sexier to buy your loved ones some perfume, jewellery or underwear. Hope you will like the selection of windows I have picked out for you.

Harvey Nichols, Brompton Rd, take this opportunity to sell menswear, food, womenswear and accessories. The white shirt is the stable of these windows, I especially love the ‘O’.

Calvin Klein, King’s Road.

Peter Jones, Sloane’s Square and the tree of love.

Agent Provocateur, Pont Street never disappoint me with their Valentine’s Day windows, cool play on words: ‘4 flashes, 1 strip’.

Tiffany & Co, Sloane Street.

Links of London, Sloane Square. Cool retro theme, reminds me of playing this ages ago.

Myla, this is almost trashy..

A few words on sale windows

Various  stores, London

Wow I havent pressed the ‘New post’ – button for ages, but I’m back – finally. The sale time is nearly over, but I thought it would be good to look at what the stores got up to this winter sale time. And a couple of windows really stood out from the samey sale POS noise.

The White Company, Symons Street. It’s nice to see a completely white sale window scheme, without any hint of red.

MCM, Sloane Street makes sale look exciting with a fresh take on the chosen colours. The use of three and two-dimensional letters adds interest.

Marie Chantal, Sloane Street. A very understated but funky take on the subject. Also very similar to their last winter sale windows, which you can find here.

A lot of stores rely on POS posters to tell ‘the sale story’. Here are some that I really liked.

Anthropologie, Regent Street add a ‘hand-made’- touch to sale POS.

Desigual, Regent Street. Clever use of the iconic I heart T-shirt. Funky idea, but does it look professional enough?
