In Transition

28 Sep

The leaves have started falling, the mornings are dark. I’m still gripping onto the last moments of summer with the senseless optimism of wearing sandals every day, but I know there will come a day within the next fortnight that the desire to wear a coat and a pair of boots will overrule. The shops are ready. Oxford Street is already a vision of cosiness and autumnal sophistication.

JW Anderson at Topshop

18 Feb

I snapped this pic of Topshop Oxford Circus at the weekend.

The ad campaign images (which you can view online here) have been circulating for weeks now, featuring these 2 girls (?) with absurdly long hair. One of them reminds me of the girl from the Ring, the other of a particularly unkempt elderly Maths teacher I once had. Either way, it’s a bold look. Fantastic to see it brought to life in the window, though!

What do you think of JW Anderson’s new collection for Topshop? Did you bag any of the pieces? And more importantly, will you be rocking the Sadako look any time soon?

Window Round-Up

28 Apr

WAREHOUSE – There’s a sophisticated simplicity to this ‘Day Out’ concept.

OASIS – How fun is this scheme? ‘The Printcess and the Pea’, is a real stop and look window. I wish they had maybe used some prints that were more on-trend (baroque or geometric) to prevent it from drifiting into twee territory.

TOPMAN 

TOPSHOP – there’s a lot of jungle action going on on the high street right now and Topshop is no exception. Particularly love the butterflies above the trees.

ZARA

 ZARA Oxford Street East – HOW FAB IS THIS ANDY WARHOL INSPIRED WINDOW?! LOVE IT!!
