“Blink” Retail: If you’re going to do it, do it bright- Jubilee Special

The Jubilee weekend is almost here, and retail has certainly grasped hold of this opportunity with both hands. Barely is there a window that doesn’t feature something Jubilee related. I have to say that this has led to a bit of Union Jack fatigue on my part. That’s why I thought Selfridges approach was so refreshing. If you’re going to do it, then why not really go for it with swathes of bright coloured, flag themed bunting. Looking wonderfully dramatic in the huge drop of the central escalator.

“Blink” Retail: Marvellous Miu Miu

The ‘ladylike’ thing seems to be a bit of a theme for “Blink” this week. I’m not quite sure why, but suddenly a little lace glove and a head scarf seems quite the thing to be indulging in right now. Perhaps it’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee having an effect, or a hang over from last year’s Royal Wedding? Whatever it is, Miu Miu have created a rather charming look that’s absolutely Buckingham Palace perfection.
