Harvey Nichols, London

These are my absolute favourite windows in London currently at Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge, London. I am so excited in sharing these with you from my weekly flaneur -ing of the London cityscape. I am not sure where the idea originated from, however, but for me at least, they have a wonderful Surreal quality. I have been trying to think about what they remind me of and I think they are a combination of Hans Belmer's poupees (but these are far more glamorous and certainly not as gruesome), but also windows from 1930's Grand Magasin and the Exposition Internationale du Surrealisme at the Gallerie Beaux-Arts, Paris. I feel the team at Harvey Nichols have absolutely excelled themselves with these windows and I much say, they really are superb..!
