Abstract grandeur at Selfridges

14 Mar

New window scheme at Selfridges (photos taken last Sunday 11th March), following the ‘Bright Young Things’ scheme promoting new and up-and-coming brands, here we have a window for the international Womens’ luxury brands.

The minimal colour palette is juxtaposed with a variety of textured props: paper, linen, stone, pebbles, sheet metal to name a few.  Unusual poses of mannequin make for some striking compositions within the window that cannot fail to stir the imagination. It’s a very moody display for this Spring transitional period, though. It’s as if Selfridges are subliminally trying to tell us all to start building our autumn wardrobes now!

Above: paintings by Georgio do Cherico (left) and Paul Delvaux (right) – for some reason the Selfridges windows reminded me of these Surrealist paintings… Wonder what the inspiration really was?
