Austin Reed, London


I used to quite enjoy seeing the schemes at Austin Reed along Regent St. here in London, although I'm not really enjoying the last few installations.  The company seem to have faded away into the background a little over the last while and not produced anything very worthwhile recording (at least I feel).  I have however, recorded this one as it is rather deathly dull and just doesn't work for me.  I love the idea of the 'Missing Person', reminiscent of Rene Magritte's Le Pelerin but the Bowler hats here are just far too high and therefore too far away from the mannequins for this to work and just look odd.  Anyway, while good intentions are in place they simply need to be rather more harnessed, I feel.
