Christmas 2012: jewellery and accessories

Various, Sloane Street area, London

I don’t often do this but I wanted to draw your attention to jewellery and accessory windows as they can often very elaborate or miniature schemes to make such small products stand out. So here are a collection of high-end accessory windows mainly from the Sloane street area in London.

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?
