VISUAL MERCHANDISING TRENDS: London Christmas Windows 2012

Whether its Oriental Splendor at Harvey Nichols, Disney Princesses at Harrods or “Not Your Usual Christmas” at Selfridges, London’s Holiday windows for 2012 are all about fantasy, luxury and the traditions we associate with the festive season.

This year, Selfridges has enlisted the help of Bruce Weber for its Christmas campaign. The photographer has created a film and set of photographs exploring the theme – Not Your Usual Christmas.  The Oxford Street windows recreate scenes from the Weber campaign, complete with miniature ponies, a lavish Christmas sleepover and a giant Selfridges gingerbread house.







Harvey Nichols has looked to the Orient for this year’s Christmas windows with an Eastern explosion of festive colour and sparkle. Models dressed in the autumn/winter 12 collections look out onto the street, surrounded by gifts. The series of beautiful handcrafted props and traditional Oriental materials that adorn the windows have been injected with a splash of fluorescent colour for a pretty – modern Christmas with edge.





This year Harrods Christmas windows showcase ten stunning interpretations of original Disney Princess gowns, recreated by designers including Oscar de la Renta, Versace and Elie Saab for Princesses Pocahontas, Ariel, Cinderella and more.
