Tiffany & Co‘s London Bond Street store wins the prize for the most Christmassy of Christmas windows so far, with its traditional themed displays that portray romance and the idea of spending the festive holidays at home. This snowy house comes complete with a wreath adorned door in Tiffany blue and one of the store’s signature jewellery box atop the steps.Another window shows the silhouette of a newly engaged couple about to kiss beneath the mistletoe with a sparkling engagement ring perched on the window’s ledge.
For Christmas 2012 the Harvey Nichols display team have created a colourful festive party scene for their Knightsbridge flagship complete with an array of giant flowers and an abundance of fairy lights, as well as a nod to the Far East and the Oriental trends seen on the catwalks.
Harrods called on some of their most famous fashion friends to help create their Disney-themed festive window displays. Ten iconic Disney princesses were given a high fashion make-over, including Cinderalla as dressed by Versace.
Snow White was restyled by Oscar de la Renta and can be seen beside a castle in one of the famous Knightsbridge store’s windows…
Over at Selfridges on London’s Oxford Street, meanwhile, the festive windows recreate scenes from photographer Bruce Weber’s 2012 campaign, ‘Not Your Usual Christmas’, including this one complete with exploding crackers, lego men and disco balls.
Selfridges also dedicates a window to this year’s Children In Need charity fundraiser, displaying the designer Pudsey Bears restyled by the likes of Tom Ford, Gucci and Prada.
