The Jubilee took over London last weekend, I don't think you could step onto a London street without catching sight of a union jack or a string of bunting. Every shop joined in the celebrations creating displays and visual delights fit for a Queen. The pictures above are a selection of my favourite displays. The first two pictures are from Hackett, I love the collage of pictures of the Queen showing her through the various years, the history really draws you in. The corgis with headscarves feature outside the Mulberry store in Selfridges, I love the little Queen-esque headscarves they have styled on the dogs. As you have probably worked out from the signage, the last two windows are from Jack Wills on the Kings Road.

A clever play on words can be a very powerful tool in marketing and promotion, look at the size and success of French Connections recent campaigns! So I was very excited when I saw this campaign for Levis on Regent Street. Coloured jeans in pastels and icecream shades are a wardrobe must-haves for Spring Summer. Every brand is shouting about their version including Gap who's current campaign is all around bright jeans. This campaign for Levis is definitely worth shouting about or blogging about should I say!
Levis coloured jeans in every colour of the rainbow are at the forefront of this campaign, but they are not alone. The curve they refer too is a play on words of the curve of a rainbow and the curve of a woman! A collection titled Curve is what Levis is promoting, designed by the jeans brand to celebrate the curves of a woman with three different fit jeans based on your body type.
The message in this display to me is the ultimate example of taking a trend and making it fit (literally..) your brands image and product, whilst really understanding your consumers needs.

This display at Anthropologie on Regent Street can't help but make you stop in your busy shopping tracks. The burst of colour and dramatic dripping paint design that covers the majority of the stores windows is big, bold and brilliant! The pastel colours, in particular the aqua, nod towards the key trends this Spring Summer with these sorbet shades looking to dominate the high street.
I like the fact that the two windows, one either side of the stores entrance, use different compositions for the paint drip design. The one dominating the majority of the window with a few cleverly placed gaps to showcase product and props. And the second, creating a window (within the window..) to show key outfits on a mannequin grouping.

It may be ten below in London but that doesn't stop this display on Brompton Road look any less appealing! This summer inspired candy campaign from the British brand is right on the mark with this seasons candy colours and fun approach. The attention to detail on the giant icecreams is what prevents this campaign from looking cheap and tacky, the hundreds and thousands are my personal favourite, they look good enough to eat!
