LONDON – I wondered around the busy streets of central London this past weekend and stumbled upon a very expensive part of town, New Bond Street and its surrounds. I find expensive shops that cater to the über rich intimidating. Perhaps it has to do with the security guard who is standing by the door on the inside or outside without a smile on his face. He’s big, tall and intimidating. They all seem to have one. I don’t ever enter these shops, but I do press my nose up against the window. I find the window displays purposefully enticing. There is so much here in London that invites you to come inside and see and then spend.
One window display that was so beautiful was this one for Asprey. It had so much attention to detail and the colours were so warm.
Louis Vuitton offered something bold and edgy.
We were all intrigued by this woman. She looked so real and life-like that we got closer and closer to the window to make sure she wasn’t real.
But sometimes the simplest window display ideas are just as striking. An art gallery had this simple flower arrangement in its window.
This window display is plain but I love the elegant faces and chic hats.
I look forward to Christmas time when the shops will go all out to get us to part with our cash…What’s the best window display you’ve seen lately?
