Casa Camper, Berlin


This week we are in what is possibly the coolest place on the planet (well apart from London of course) and visiting some of the fantastic boutiques and shows for Berlin Fashion week.  What is so great about Berlin is that we are actually able to dodge the usual H&M's, the Gaps and the other mega brands which dominate and pollute our high streets.  Of course, these brands are here but there are also so many other cool places to see too which always makes for a pleasurable shopping experience.  So, strap yourselves in we have some real corkers to show you.

Silent Partners Exhibition, Cambridge, UK


We did leave this exhibition to the last minute but wow it was worth the visit.  Silent Partners; Artist and Mannequin from Form to fetish, is an exquisitely curated exhibition at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge here in the UK.  'This ground breaking exhibition is devoted to the artists mannequin which uncovers its playful, uncanny - and sometimes disturbing - history from the renaissance to the present day'.  Sadly the last day is tomorrow but you can catch the exhibition at the Musee Bourdelle from 1st April 2015 in Paris.  We weren't allowed to take images to show you, well apart from a couple of covert ones to whet your appetites (well we did buy the book too) and if you can get to Paris (or Cambridge on Sunday - just 1 hour from London) it really is worth the visit if you can make it.

Prada, London


Continuing with what appears to us to be Prada's references to interiors and architecture their latest scheme contains faux perspective views created from these beautiful wooden panels with its horizontal grain. As usual this brand looks fantastic and interesting.  Glimpses of the scenery behind of landscapes in monochromatic tones forms the focal point beyond the product.  Great to see at least one luxury brand not looking vulgar.

Selfridges, London


There has been an enormous amount of press around this scheme and all for the right reasons too.  This installation along these staggeringly large windows on Oxford Street celebrates the Bright Old things and the retirement renaissance, so essentially people who have retired but refuse to go away quietly; fantastic stuff.  There is a truly remarkable and inspiring story here so do check out Selfridges website as there is a heap of information about their latest scheme.  Thankfully this is one brand getting everything oh so damned right.

Patek Philippe, London


This is a brand which don't normally seem to do very much which is why we rarely go to view them, however we were rather struck by this installation of exquisitely made props based on narratives from historical text.  From the 1851 Worlds Fair, the 1932 A Stern Family Affair to the 1851 Journey to St. Petersburg these windows look absolutely incredible.  We know the product is of course Uber premium but now they finally have the windows to match.  If you do have the opportunity to see these then do swing by as the level of detail here is quite phenomenal.

Fendi, London


We do love a bit of humour in windows which seems to be so lacking in most brands schemes, but then that's globalisation for you we guess.  Parachuting their products to you right now is the Frndi installation along Bond street.  This is such a difficult store to capture as there is pillar right in front of their windows but we hope you can appreciate the scheme nonetheless.

Joseph, London

Joesph have just launched their SS15 windows at their Fulham Road store inspired by the gorgeous new Valentino pre-collection and in conjunction with the french artist Joy de Rohan Chabot.  This moss filled window is quite a spectacle to view with beautifully placed butterflies inside and on the exterior of their building; this is something that we just don't see often enough here in London.  If you want to view more of Chabot's work do have a look at her installation here of her amazingly hand painted Butterflies at Chateau D'Haroue too.  Stunning.  http://www.joyderohanchabot.com/expositions

Moschino, London


Oh yes they did.  This is a difficult scheme to describe beyond a mannequin reclining on an out sized can of drink.  So there you go, a mannequin reclining on an out sized can of drink at Moschino.  Great prop though.

Cos, London


We have really warmed to this brand and their installations, particularly at Sale time as they are always so thoughtful.  With their out sized egg timers in a repetition format this is a great way to communicate the (thankfully) relatively short time of the Sale season.  We will continue to keep a distant eye on this brand to see what they do throughout 2015 and we hope that there will be some  real corkers.

Luis Vuitton, London


We are not entirely sure what to make of this scheme at LV although if you have the opportunity to take a closer look you can really appreciate the superb quality of the product however.  With their shiny Gold, Matt Grey and Matt Black pallets (the kind of things that would carry stacks of products and made easy to move by forklift trucks) with the obligatory LV logo are finished to perfection of course.  We do love the Lame backdrop however and overall, only this brand could really get away with such an ostentatiously povertous scheme, surely?
