As the festive season fast approaches, retailers reveal their eye-catching Christmas window displays.
Retail Gazette showcases the best in visual merchandising from retailers including Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Harrods, Fenwick and Louis Vuitton.
Selfridges has put food at the heart of its ‘Seasons Feastings’ Christmas window display at its Oxford Street flagship.
The luxury department store has dedicated 15 windows to Christmas, celebrating food moments such as roasties to mince pies.
Harrods has let Dior take the reins for its Christmas windows this year, creating a gingerbread version of its iconic store.
The windows’ lights give an iced look, while real products across fashion, beauty and home are found inside the gingerbread.
Fenwick’s Newcastle flagship always has a showstopping Christmas window and this year it features beloved children’s book character Clarice Bean: Think Like an Elf.
The department store has teamed up with children’s author and illustrator Lauren Child CBE to bring the character to life.
The windows follow the story of Clarice Bean as she desperately tries to save her family’s Christmas and stop the festive spirit from completely floating away.
Louis Vuitton has collaborated with toy retailer Lego this year to create a colourful Christmas window display.
Harvey Nichols has used a metallic colour palette of golds and silvers to decorate its Christmas windows.
The department store takes its inspiration from Christmas parties with oversized stars and sequins taking centre stage.
Harvey Nichols has also used disco ball sparkles and mirrored stars in its window displays this year.
Fortnum & Mason
Fortnum & Mason’s Piccadilly flagship celebrates “the joy of festive traditions, merriment and memory making”.
A character named Geoffrey is featured undertaking a series of Christmas traditions, from lighting the Christmas pudding to decorating baubles, in eight separate Fortnum windows.
