New Noir Nancy Windows…

July 18, 2011

Do you like our latest windows showcasing the new Nancy Hobo handbag? Our Visual Merchandiser, Marco, explains the inspiration behind the display:

“The concept is a surreal shadows vs reality clash, given by the black vinyls on, the real branches coming out of them and the 2D lamp posts with a real light bulb at the top. The inspiration comes from the London urban architecture with cinematic references to Hitchcock, Tim Burton and Mary Poppins that give a ‘noir’, magical feel.”

Winter Wonderland Windows…

November 17, 2010

Our new Christmas windows feature unique, hand-cut paper installations depicting winter wonderland flora and fauna, inspired by our ‘Winter Scene’ Christmas card and created by the hugely talented paper artist, Helen Musselwhite.  Helen worked throughout the night, using over 400 scalpel blades to hand-cut the sets, which feature wise owls, roaming wolves and deer against a wintry backdrop.  We think they look magical and enchanting, a cross between Narnia and The Box of Delights!
