Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Christmas shop windows

Continuing with my theme of Christmas in London, here are some shots of the more unusual window displays I spotted this week around New Bond Street.


This was 'Victoria's Secrets'. All the windows had been decorated on the outside to frame the goods on display. I liked this one because the reflection framed the windows of the building opposite just perfectly.


Ralph Lauren's very classy window displays again reflected the lights of Cartier's display across the road.

 Cartier's windows. I liked the big white lion lounging along the balustrade.


This building with its garish shop window stuck out like a beacon amongst these other exclusive shops. Quite a bold move away from the other designer stores. This shop is Stella McCartney's

  1. Among the beautiful and classy displays of London's best retailers, I rather like Stella's windows. I'll bet the clothing on display at her shop will be similarly priced to the other stores.

  6. Oh, I just love these windows. I wouldn't need to go inside any of them, since they probably have nothing I can afford. But still, the displays are wonderful. Thanks for taking me to the streets of London again. :-)

  13. I have to say that shop windows like this look great in the dark - but on a hot afternoon, well, they just look odd!!

    Nice pictures.

  16. «Louis» enjoyed "window shopping" with you!
    He suspects that Harrod's has splendid displays at Christmas. He wonders if the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop is still in the food court at Harrod's.
