Very popular thing for this (dare I say hot) summer in window displays is the animal theme. It can be anything from insects at Aquascutum, deadly snakes at Alexander McQueen and domestic animals at Oasis. Here I show you some of my best finds.
Aquascutum, Regent Street. Almost like from the Hitchcock film The Birds.
Cool elephant pedestals, I like the use of bamboo here.
The Butterfly Catchers. Aquascutum used a very limited colour palette for these, next Tiffany & Co on Bond Street and a lot more colourful butterfly window.
I love these Alexander McQueen windows; the mannequins are a cool touch. It is all based on the collection, which is amazing.
And how much do we love dogs? A lot.
Here at White Stuff for their 25th birthday windows:
And here cute poodles at Oasis. Ahhh. although they could have done them a bit more visible.
Various, Oxford Street, Bond Street, London
At the time of London Fashion Week , which is now, quite a few stores use this time to promote their fashion in their windows. I did see some really good ones, but last autumn was so much better with Zara doing backstage scenes, and so did Debenhams. Instead the shops want you to see the actual shows: TopShop is showing their catwalk show live on a large screen in their Oxford Circus store windows, and Burberry were advertising their website for live coverage.
KG, Regent Street. I had to show you these first because they are so funny, and a great idea for a shoe display. Suits Fashion Week because it gives me the feeling of the buzz in shows that general public can’t see. I saw something similar in Saatchi Gallery a month ago where lots of legs were showing on the bottom of a large pile of clothes. It might still be there so go and have a look.
Fenwick, Bond Street.
House of Fraser, Oxford Street. Loving the pastel paper airplanes.
John Lewis, Oxford Street.
Monsoon, Oxford Street.
Peter Jones, Sloane Square. Old shelving put to good use..
Jigsaw, Argyll Street.
Oasis, Argyll Street.
Warehouse, Argyll Street and flowery fabrics.
Burberry, Regent Street. You can watch their womenswear fashion show live on Burberry.com on 23rd of February at 4 pm. Also if you’re interested of catching some more shows; there is live streaming on londonfashionweeklive.co.uk.
