Liberty, London

I had been wondering if anyone out there in retail world would link in their window schemes with the Surreal House Exhibition currently at the Barbican here in London. I visited the exhibition myself several weeks ago and was rather underwhelmed I must say, particularly as the Barbican usually present some incredible exhibitions and I did leave it feeling rather uninspired and feeling 'well so what', also particularly as the Maison Martin Margiela exhibition at Somerset House was so incredibly exciting. Different kinds of exhibitions, I know, but this is how I felt. Anyway, what I would recommend is visiting Liberty here in London to have a look at their installation which is fun beyond belief with product tied in to their own version of Surrealism. OK, it doesn't quite have the depth of the original, but it doesn't matter. Of course Salvador Dali designed windows in New York which is another interesting historical link (I seem to remember in 1939 for Bonwit Teller the long gone department store). What has been created here is, of course, to the usual exceptional standards this team at this brand are known for.
