Breaking the Rules

21 Feb

Whether it’s chalky pastels or acid brights, the one rule on the high street now is: COLOUR

Sunflowers, Spaceships and Flowerpots

16 Mar

Thought I’d share some of the lovely Visuals spotted on my travels recently.

Forever 21 Oxford St, London have upped their game with this window display. Pastel coloured furniture and lace decals and depth and dimension to this high window that some of their previous schemes have lacked – hope to see more great stuff from them in the future.

Paint drips frame these dressmakers’ mannequins. High impact and generally a pleasure to look at on the otherwise drab Regents Street.

COS, Regent Street. These upside-down plant pots made me do a double take. Love a bit of bonkers.

This is my favourite of the Liberty childrenswear windows currently on display, the colours are lovely and the hanging spaceships are so incredibly detailed they look like they’re on hire from NASA!

Massimo Dutti on Regents Street has a sophisticated Palm Springs vibe.

Desigual, Oxford St. I’m rarely a fan of their OTT schemes, but their mannequin hair and make-up is often wonderfully creative. These wigs couldn’t fail to catch my eye.

I’ve seen this scheme at a few branches of Zara including Regents Street (though this is a photo of the Windsor store – shame about the dropped clutch bag on the floor!) Such minimalism is hard to pull off but with a dramatic composition like this and fantastic styling, it makes a great statement.

Call Dale Winton – a River Island supermarket sweep would be right up my street!
