“Blink” Retail: All Aboard the Liberty Express this Christmas

Some month’s back I was delighted to be invited to the Liberty Press Day. That was pretty much in the midst of Summer time and I am only now feeling mentally ready to admit that Christmas is in fact just around the corner and so I am prepared to share some seasonal joy with you…

Liberty took inspiration from the Victorian age of luxurious steam train travel as well as classic Hollywood movie train moments from the like of ‘Brief Encounter’, ‘Some Like it Hot’ and ‘Murder on the Orient Express’. The Liberty Christmas windows will be transformed into a whole Victorian steam train, bursting with sumptuous and luxurious gift ideas, gold paper chains and festoon lights.

Here’s some highlights from the Christmas Press Day, and let me tell you, if Stella McCartney did an adult version of that super cute bunny onesie, I wouldn’t be wearing anything else for the whole Christmas holidays!
