Fortnum and Mason, London


'Every Cup tells a story' is the strap line at Fortnum's right now with their unusually (slightly) minimal scheme with a big nod to some old school presentation.  We really are missing the techniques and humour on the high street right now, possibly due to globalisation and homogenization of everything around us?  So, mercifully brands like Fortnum and Mason are still around to show us how its done and there are still some brilliant artists around who understand the various dynamics required for exemplary presentation (however for how much longer?) but not a generic graphic in sight so maybe just watch and learn.

Burberry, London


We saw this scheme a couple of weeks ago and we have been slightly hesitant in including it as there are so few elements for us to comment on.  There are however a series of textured forms onto which the product has been positioned and placed but beyond that what else can we say?

Hardy Amies, London


This is a brand which has never appeared here although as with so much of Saville Row there is so little to capture in the form of Visual Merchandising for us to include.  Well, until now that is.  Here at Hardy Amies which has an amazing authenticity and quality with of course Mr, Amies himself being the official dressmaker to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II from 1952 until his retirement in 1989 we have spotted these out sized handkerchief forms with instructions in vinyl placed on the fenestration probably from the man himself..... "You can wear a dark Blue suit and tie with a pale Blue shirt and navy Blue socks, but then you must then have a patterned Silk handkerchief.  The types of stores along this street clearly still have a market available to them although the question is sadly probably for how much longer?

We included a smaller version of this scheme at the brands Rue St. Honore store in Paris recently, however just look at the bigger scheme.  This space age scheme taking over the Louboutin stores now across the globe launches their SS17 collection.  Featuring chrome UFO pods surrounded by jewel-tone cabochon lights, a galactic star-filled back drop and Louboutin's interpretation of a glamorous astronaut with their delicious product floating in zero gravity on the periphery.  There are just some schemes we wish we had thought of ourselves.   Grateful thanks to the team from www.studioxag.com for sharing these with us.

Joseph does it again.  Taking inspiration from the SS17 Jil Sander show collection and their beautiful pleated pieces in soft blush Pink tones which reflect the colours and textures of the Antelope Navejo canyon in the Arizona desert where the water and sand carves flowing shapes into the rocks of the narrow passageways of the amazing natural landscape, the team have created this incredible installation at their Brompton Road store with a 3D textured hand carved back wall and free standing organic forms with an artificial Pink coloured stream dissecting through it.  An all round beautiful scheme and stunning product.

Anthropologie, London


There's nothing like a good old rummage around Anthropologie and getting those creative juices flowing with the abundance of creativity in their stores.  Clearly we're already into Spring schemes and with their flora and pentagonal / honey comb inspired structured installation (at least at their Regent street store although of course the beauty of this brand is that there are so many variations on the theme across their stores) here's just one interpretation of their current global directive.

Louis Vuitton, London


Wow, this are a very dramatic installation at LV along Bond street right now.  The scheme is possibly linked to the Louvre and the Cour Marly's majestic sculpture hall where the brands AW17 runway show was held although we can also see references to all sort of amazing places around Europe such as the Gardens of Bomarzo which we have included here previously but if you are not familiar with it then do do a quick search in your preferred browser as it really is a magical place and great for inspiration.

Desigual, London


There appears to be a bit of a Russian theme running across several schemes in town right now and this one at Desigual is particularly fun.  With their outsized Matryoshka doll (or Russian nesting doll to the layman) and mannequins with stereotypical braided hair complete with kokoshnik's (do correct us if we are wrong) this possibly ties in with the current exhibition of Russian Art at the Royal Academy here in the centre of it all?

Gant, London


Gant schemes appear to becoming more and more simplified since their move across Regent street a short while ago, although new teams and new visions are fine of course and fresh approaches are always welcomed.  With just a few simple bust forms in dynamic positions behind which are placed 'cut out' backdrops the scheme highlights some of their shirt products.  A bit of theatre is always appreciated though...;o)

Liberty, London


We know for sure that this scheme relates back to the current Royal Academy's exhibition of Russian Art, Revolution: Russian Art 1917 - 1932 as it says so on their windows.  Curating their products is a key point of difference between this store and their competitors (department) stores across town and we are slightly relieved that their scheme didn't lean towards one of the R.A.'s additional current features, 'Why I made my Muppet Masterpiece: American Gothique', can you imagine Miss Piggy et al in Liberty windows surrounded with super luxury products?  Probably not.

Moncler, London


Moncler is one of our favourites for schemes right now (although we know we can be fickle and swear no allegiance to any particular brand usually) and their latest offering in a sea of Gold is particularly interesting.  With their caged figures in a gravitational format (possibly from the Absolute Bird Cage collection from Windows mannequins) and just one product in each window this scheme is shining very brightly across Bond street right now.  Just image what we would see from this brand if they had a much bigger store here in London.

Dior, London


Tying in very nicely with their 'We Should All Be Feminists' limited edition White Cotton and Linen T-shirts promotion, yours for just £490 (ouch) the latest scheme is fantastically dramatic and quite a departure from their usual schemes.  A simple message which really packs a punch and great to see this brands windows still looking so strong and yet very simple.
