“Blink” Retail: Louis Vuitton at Selfridges

Louis Vuitton in Selfridges

Louis Vuitton in Selfridges

This Selfridges window scheme was designed by Louis Vuitton, featuring their product alongside these stools from Cassina. I’m not sure what it represents but as a symmetry addict I find it very pleasing, and I also like how it frames their lovely twirly lift too.

“Blink” Retail: LV goes Jurassic

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

I have no idea why they have chosen this scheme featuring golden dinosaur skeletons for the Bond Street Louis Vuitton store, but they are fabulous never the less. If anyone knows of a deeper message behind this look, do share. Thanks!

“Blink” Retail: Selfridges/ Louis Vuitton/ Yayoi Kusama

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

Did you read our post about the Louis Vuitton Kusama Concept Store at Selfridges a little while back? I hope you entered the competition!

Louis Vuitton have unveiled an amazing take-over of Selfridges’ windows, as well as turning the Concept Store space into a mini Louis Vuitton store filled with the spotty gorgeousness of their collection created in collaboration with Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama. This is a super duper spot overload, and we love it… well, most of it. I have to say I was quite disturbed by the lifelike appearance of the life size wax models of Kusama in the corner window installation!

“Blink” Retail: Paper on Sloane Street

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2012

We were out on the hunt for new season stock yesterday, amongst all the sale rails and final mark down banners. One place that was blissfully free of discount promotions was Sloane Street. There were some really lovely new season windows to be inspired by. Chanel‘s was particularly beautiful. However, there were a couple of windows with no ‘real’ product in that really looked the most interesting. Gucci and Louis Vuitton had both filled their windows with beautiful paper sculptures of their pieces. Both minimal and impactful. Gucci goes for a window filling, huge scale version of two iconic handbags. LV delicately sculpts a pair of paper shoes as well as creating layers of beautifully folded paper shirts and blouses.

“Blink” Retail: Summer Coats

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

These feel very appropriate for the impending Jubilee, as there is a distinctively regal feel about these wonderful Summer coats. With quite a 60’s attitude about the silhouettes, fabrications and detailing this heralds an influence that we think will have a far reaching impact into season’s ahead.

If those all seem a little prohibitively priced, how about this beauty from the brilliant Zara?

“Blink” Retail: Louis Vuitton, Sloane Street

We spotted this amazing window scheme in Louis Vuitton yesterday. The arrows have beautiful, different coloured flights on them to create a really stunning effect, especially around the handbag. Gorgeous.

“Blink” Retail: High Street versus High End

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2012

It’s pretty well known that, at “Blink”, we’re huge fans of high street fashion. That’s not to say that we aren’t also passionate about high end, rarefied, eye-wateringly expensive labels too. It’s just that there is something so exciting about seeing direction delivered so creativity and still at accessible and democratic prices.

We constantly debate who is looking best, and for several months, Zara has come out tops. I wish I could say that it was one of our home grown labels, but the truth is that Zara deal with textiles, silhouettes and detailing in an exemplary way. Here are some prefect examples spotted in their Knightsbridge store window. I know they may not bear the close inspection of the brand that inspired this look (unmistakable Louis Vuitton), but they’ll do for us!

“Blink” style: What to wear for Spring Summer 2012!

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

So, here we are in 2012. Happy New Year!

It may well be gale force winds out there today, but we are fully committed to wearing the new Spring looks. To be honest, they may be proceeded by some thermals and then a little concealed under a really big coat, but the key thing is that we’ll be wearing them! In our dream shopping basket for Spring’12, these are the looks we would be investing in. Care of the wonderful Style.com, we’ve trawled the shows and come up with our most adored looks to share with you, from Giles, Stella, Isabel, Clements Ribeiro, Louis Vuitton and Burberry. In reality, we’ll be buying maybe one or two posh bits, and the rest will be created through the magic of the brilliant British high street…

AW’11: New Season Coating

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

We’ve been collecting shots of great coats for the past month, but were distracted from sharing them with you due to all of the amazing LFW coverage we had to post. The high end stores of Mount Street, Bond Street, South Molton Street and Sloane Street have been spotlighting the most amazing outerwear, encouraging us to let go of all Indian Summer hopes and embrace the fact that Winter is coming, whether we like it or not.

This post focuses on all of the wonderfully shaggy shearling, textural and paneled looks we’ve been spotting. So whether you’re after a simple sheepskin number, or feeling for a variation on the traditional wool coat (well, actually its all wool of various sorts I suppose…), there are some really inspiring styles out there. Here are some of our favourite spots for you, and we may well have some other outerwear options to follow later in the week.

Accessories: Colour Blocked

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

The passion for colour continues strongly into Autumn, and we’ve been spotting some great brilliantly colour blocked accessories. Its a great way to refer to a trend without going head to toe. Instead you can choose head or toe! Bold striping and contrast colour panels create a strongly graphic statement that we find hard to resist. This selection of images come from the ‘Accessories’ report that we are putting together to be issued this month. We’ll be sharing some more highlights tomorrow.
