I LOVE store window displays. It seems to be a dying art here in the States, unless you live in one of the larger cities (New York, Chicago, Beverly Hills etc.)
I've attached some pictures that were posted on The Very Simon G website, Harrods FB page and a really cool video that shows how the various designers came up with the theme of the crowns they designed.
This exhibit began May 15th, 2012. If any of my London bloggie buddies sees the exhibit, snap picks! I would LOVE to see more!
The Chanel Cruise Collection opinions were definitely mixed! I really enjoyed reading your thoughts. Your comments truly made me think about things.
For everyone that said the designs looked like costumes, you hit the nail on the head! When I wrote the post, I couldn't think of a WORD to describe the collection. For me, the word costumes sums it up. There's definitely a fine line between Haute Couture and what was shown at Versailles a couple of days ago. Have a Great Weekend Everybody! I'll be back with more Monday.
