A Thoroughly British Summer

17 Jun

The Jubilee may be over (sob!) but the Great British High Street shows no signs of abaiting the patriotic feel. There’s untold mileage in a string of bunting!

Here’s a few things of my favourite things I’ve snapped recently.

DANIEL

I don’t know much about this department store in Windsor (is it a chain?) but their Regal display was fit for a Queen!

BELOW: an independant shop in South Kensington, exclusively selling Royal-themed tat in would seem. I imagine they’ve been doing a good trade recently. 

THE WHITE COMPANY

Nailing not only the bunting trend by the white-on-white trend too. So elegant, nice lighting too.

LIBERTY

The Liberty pop-up at Stratford’s Westfield is small but delightful. An excellent place to buy gifts for sophisticated people.

TOPSHOP

Thier current scheme is basically a rip-off of Meadham Kirchhoff’s S/S12 but delightful nonetheless.

…And here’s the best of the rest. I had a backlog of images on my camera of pre-Jubilee windows, so here they are too.

TOPSHOP

Their scheme from last month with plenty of tie-dye and pink wigs. Have a feeling someone might have been listening to Hole when they came up with this.

^I WANT TO BE THIS GIRL!!

BERSHKA

Lace and neon: nailed. Bershka is a serious one to watch for Visuals.

 

ZARA

Smurf alert.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like…

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!
