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.
