Match Point to Tommy Hilfiger

The bright yellow and the sheer giganticness of the tennis ball caught my eye at Tommy Hilfiger on Regent Street this afternoon. The all-American brand have used the ever popular connotation of the country club lifestyle, more specifically tennis, to create a fun and eye catching display.

While I think the window display is striking, what I think works particularly well in this scheme is how the brand has carried the concept throughout the whole store. (Which is something I don't think brands do enough in visual merchandising!) The second photograph is one example of how they did this by using old fashioned rackets and a range of multi-coloured tennis balls on a shelf above a rail of clothing. Another example, which I couldn't photograph because of the number of staff stood around was a table tennis table complete with net being used to display a range of piled up polo shirts!


  1. I love it!! Damn those employees! I would love to see those tables

  2. I love also how they've done the Royal Tenenbaum thing in their adverts with the grovvy long-haired tennis player. My hubby and I did Royal Tenenbaums for last Halloween and it was brilliant. Still wear the faux fur Margot coat too.

  3. OMG. I love your blog. My name's Anna, I'm a stylist and visual merchandiser in LA. I'm 23 years old and moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. I've worked with such designers as Max Azria, Nicole Richie, and my idol Rachel Zoe. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
