I really like the simplicity of the new Zara windows on Regent St, the blue and white wallpaper with its very intricate design really catches your eye, but initially over powers the product but does drawer you in to take a closer look, then you see the simplicity of the dressing.
I like the way the wallpaper has been brought down onto the floor it helps to add depth to the windows.
Their windows can be quite tricky as the building is on a slope so the windows get higher as you walk past them, but they have added in a mirror which many of us will have seen in shops used for security, but here it allows you to see the bed dressing. What a simple and great idea.
Here are a few photos of how Anthropologie are using found items and upcycling fixtures in their new store in Richmond.
As usual they have been very inventive and have created some great displays and visual features.
Aesop have opened in Marylebone High Street in London with a simple and inventive interior and window scheme.
I love the simple wooden ladder system they have used both for shopfitting and in the window, it really is simple but very effective and ajustable. It lets the product be the hero.
The first thing that greets you on entering the store is an amazing array of fresh flowers which look and smell fabulous, its lovely to see a retailer doing this rather than instantly hitting you with special offers or buy me messages.
As usual their team members are very friendly and have superb product knowledge.

From the Field: Christmas Windows
Harrods are delighted to present their world-famous Christmas Windows, revealing this year’s unique, magical and creative theme, The Harrods Christmas Express.
Inspired by the iconic British steam train, each window brings to life one of their departments depicted as a scene from one of the carriages.
They hope their windows fill you with festive spirit, come and jump aboard.
