We three kings of Orient are

Christmas has landed and I thought I'd kick off with this gorgeous scheme from Vivienne Westwood. The quintessentially British fashion house has used the three kings characters from the nativity story as the inspiration for their Christmas window displays in their menswear store (see first photo) and their ladies store (see second window.)

The rich tones of coppers, reds and golds emanate grandeur and royalty, while the use of three mannequins and mock crowns help to establish the theme of the display. I love this simple concept, that with clever spotlighting, really shows off the fabulous Vivienne Westwood signature tartans and elaborate prints.

Back to the drawing board for Moschino

I really like this display at Moschino, their white space just off New Bond St is the perfect setting for a colourful and playful display. The oversized objects really stand out as you walk past the store and the attention to detail, including the moschino logo printed on the pencils draw you in further. The symmetry in the display created by the two groups of pencils and the limited colour pallette makes this window pop!
