Summer brights are visible in schemes across London, this weeks post includes nature inspired concepts and the circus came to town at Harvey Nichols.

Paper foliage blooms in the windows at Anthropologie. The raw natural feel continues inside with bent wood sculptures.

The launch of the Apple Watch brings different schemes at Selfridges and Dover Street Market. Beautifully projected butterflies in flight and a pulsating heart contain amazing colour combinations.

Mini-me’s at Fendi and playful mannequins at Hackett.

Summer time ready at JCrew, Moschino and Whistles.

A giant monster machine at Louboutin, love the geometric shapes to make up the monster face.

Liberty’s new scheme is fully focused on their stores heritage and their extensive haberdashery department. Interesting use of space above the windows, which I haven’t noticed being used before for additional typography vinyl.

New store opening for chocolatiers Mast Brothers, minimal and charming sums up the space with fantastic product knowledge makes it worth checking out.

Roll up, Roll up the circus has come to town, its not your average looking circus with hints of traditional acts but the colour combination and material selection has been more considered offering a luxury finish. The mannequins look fearlessly stylish while doing dangerous circus acts. (Images curiosity of Melvyn Vincent)

The theme has extended around the rest of the windows, keeping the colours considered and playing with geometric shapes changing the scale of the windows. (Images curiosity of Melvyn Vincent)

Spots lights on at Acne and geometric highlights at Nike.

Hermes Wanderland at Saatchi Gallery

Featured on this weeks post, Selfridges have lunched another thought-provoking window scheme while Hermes has reopened their Bond Street store after months of refurbishment.

Agender is the latest window concept at Selfridges, celebrating fashion without definition; the windows explore and examine shifting gender boundaries through fashion, music and design collaborations. Cleaver display details in the way the stock has been showcased, multi-layering and flat-shaped displays make the product stand out as objects of sculpture rather than stock. Its great to see the windows being used to focus on the concept with stylised displays rather than a selling tool for product. Love the type and graphic elements of the scheme.

With the long awaited Savage Beauty exhibition opening at the V&A the current windows at McQueen have a dark ambiance about them.

Mini treasures at Dolce & Gabbana.

Paint the town red at Dover Street Market.

Straight from the catwalk at Moschino.

Floral features, great use of the outside space at Victoria Beckham, which transforms the entrance and window into a botanical treat.

Re-opening the newly refurbished Bond Street store the new windows at Hermes are a true London treat. Beautiful sculptured roads weave through the windows, with iconic British keepsakes like teapots, red buses and pigeons!

Out and about this weekend in town, seeing many retailers experimenting with live feeds and social interaction for LFW.

Live feeds, social screens have taken over the windows at Topshop and Stella McCartney. It’s interesting the way the retailers have used them differently, one more astatically considered than the other.

Screens also feature in Topman displaying video content, which continuously changes. You don’t have to always go all out on led screens; lenticular artwork also gives you a great sense of motion, with a cheeky strap line Whistles new windows are ‘blinking lovely’

Sticker Shop is another fun window from Anya Hindmarch, taking inspiration from their up coming collection - also communicating with the customer about live feeds in a cartoon style speech bubble.

Vinyl artwork can really enhance a scheme; love the dramatic glass shards at Coach and the oversized everyday objects with a Louis Vuitton twist – of course.

Colour blocking at Anthropologie.

Mass floral’s at Chanel and Mulberry, amazing texture at Chanel, really showing a contemporary edge to this trend.

Liberty’s London Fashion Week windows are a tropical delight, fab colours coming through the evergreen.

Pop-up branded vehicles, always a nice touch.

New store opening on Mount Street - the first store for Christopher Kane and the interior is very slick, the windows are a little safe so hoping for more inspiring windows to come so watch this space.

Popped to see the Barbara Kruger exhibition at Skarstedt Gallery and the current installation in the RA courtyard space by Frank Stella.
