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.
Bentalls, Kingston, Greater London
With this post I take you to the suburbs of South West London, so you probably haven’t seen these windows even if you live in London. They belong to Bentalls, a department store in Kingston. They can do pretty much their own thing in their windows, because they’re not a big chain, but they are a part of Fenwick. All the windows are bright and summery, just what you need on a grey day like today in London. The theme is nautical and the painted back walls have vinyl repetitions of anchors etc. The slogan is (if you wondered why the title) Bentalls-On-Sea- Wish You Were ‘Ere.
Superdry. I like the shovels, they make this look really playful and fun.
Swimwear by Panache and Esprit. All the windows also have Polaroid looking images of the relevant brands.
All the stock is by Fred Perry.
Stock from Vilebrequin.
The two above both have Joules stock in them.
Scotch and Soda.
