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.

One of the biggest trends from the catwalk for this season was florals, and it shows in the windows around London. It is a trend that comes back year after year, but somehow this year it seems fresher than ever. Here I have a collection of images that shows just how boldly retailers have approached this trend.
Kate Spade, Sloane Square
Miss Selfridge, Oxford Street.
Zara, Oxford Street. Bright florals are very effective with the use of twinning with mannequins with similar outfits and poses.
Joseph, Fulham Road. I walk past this shop daily and I’m really liking their windows. In this one they’ve managed to put a lot of florals into the same window: full floral outfit, the vinyl on the glass and the background with printed roses. But it works and I can’t wait to see what Joseph do next in these windows!
H&M, Oxford Street
Stella McCartney, Fulham Road
Bershka, Oxford Street

Bright, block colour is a major fashion trend this summer. Retailers are utilising on this trend to grab our attention. The stores have not just presenting their bright fashion in the windows, it’s in the window schemes themselves. Bright stock against bright background but also combined with white. Although this trend is mostly about mixing different block coloured together – I have thrown in some bright print windows as well.
Burberry, Brompton Road. Like the concept with the bags and the coloured acrylic, but the stock on the mannequins is a styling mistake..
Louis Vuitton, Sloane Street summer travel themed windows are deliciously coloured. Love the keys in the background.
Prada, Bond Street opted for an orange backdrop for their colourful accessories.
Zara TRF, Oxford Street mix up the coloured fashion with white and trow in some cool bright wigs.
I can’t remember who this is at all (terrible I know..), but nice use of mixing the bright prints with white.
Matthew Williamson capsule bag collection for BVLGARI, Bond Street.
Stella McCartney, Bruton Street. Fruit patterns are a key print in Stella’s summer collection. definitely fresh, but not sure if you would catch me wearing something like this..
Liberty of London, Great Marlborough St, London
How cool is this?!? Each window is done to a shape of a letter in We heart Stella- scheme. Let’s have a closer look at my favourite ones:
We. I am a big fan of hair in displays right now. Doing a special trend report on hair styles soon- so wait for it!! This is the first window in the sequence and I think it was a good choice to actually read out the letters clearly so that in the next ones you start looking for the letters.
E. Stella undies on what look like balloons (but are probably not).
L. How retro. I’ve given you guys this funny detail of one of the mannequins wearing eyeball goggles. At first I didn’t even notice them but after having a closer look. . How random..! But then anyone who knows me knows that I like random things, and these goggles make me giggle ;).
L. ‘Mannequin’ made out of stockings I think. Love this one so humorous. Liking and thumps up.
The undies form the bridge in the A. Seriously cool, and edgy.
I rest my case.
