It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

28 Nov

Some of my fave festive window schemes from the high street this year:

Above: Zara Oxford St West puts on 3 different shows, from puppets to demonic horns to sparkly chic

Above: Zara Oxford Circus puts on a gothic & beautiful still-life piece of theatre, like a mysterious scene from Hansel & Gretal.

Above: John Lewis creates minimal elegance with a Scandinavian feel, even down to the detail of the pricing signs being framed in wood and nailed onto a tree.

Above: Topshop Oxford Circus goes for a simple White Christmas, with the real drama being in the styling.

Above: H&M also goes for a White Christmas. I’m hoping this scheme will develop over the coming weeks.

Above: Not especially festive but I just love Oasis on Argyll Street. The styling’s great, the mannequins are beautiful, the scheme is striking. Can’t wait to see what they do next!
