Window Shopping

By Elma B.

Since I am living in London, one of world's fashion hubs (the other three being Paris, New York City, and Milan), I thought to do a post dedicated to window shopping on Bond Street. In general, Bond Street hosts a variety of luxury brand, e.g. Prada, Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Tod's and Ralph Lauren. Now, you may be thinking "yea, out of my price range" but hold it, this may serve as an inspiration to find designs that are more suitable for your check book. 

Window Shopping: Alexander McQueen Shoes 
The luxury brands on Bond Street have all displayed their hottest and latest spring designs, which by and large set this season's fashion trends. Was there any pattern I noticed? Indeed: two colored patterns, whether stripes or checkered, seemed to be a reoccurring themes, e.g., Prada and Louis Vuitton. Below, I captured the window shops of Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Alexander McQueen, Tod's and Ralph Lauren, respectively. Another reoccurring theme: sophistication and elegance. The classic message: less is more. 

Window Shopping: Tod's
Before you glance at my PERSONAL photos below, I wanted to share with you an interesting fact: a good friend, who had studied at Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan (a.k.a. Harvard for design), had revealed to me that window displays are a form of art. In another words, the window displays are professionally setup with a focus on lighting, interior design, body posture of the mannequins, and of course the merchandise on display. In fact, there are many classes at Instituto Europeo di Design dedicated to setting up window displays.
