In these days when we seem to be loosing so much of our High Street Heritage, many of us are wallowing in the nostalgia of the Golden Age of the High street and the birth of the department store. We’ve seen the BBC series The Paradise and ITV’s Mr Selfridge, each gaining viewers enthralled by the beauty of the Department stores. And now, the iconic Harvey Nichols store based in Birmingham’s Mailbox has again unveiled a jaw dropping display of window dressing, transforming the facade of the store into a beautiful row of 1950s shop fronts.
I think this is my favourite ever Harvey Nichols display, the pastel shades and candy stripes and checkerboard floors all speak of a time gone by, and yet provide the perfect juxtaposition for the ultra modern styles on display from Christian Louboutin, Gucci and Jimmy Choo amongst others.
Richard Vickery, General Manager at Harvey Nichols Birmingham, said: “We have always set the trends when it comes to our window displays and I would say this is our best yet. It’s a celebration of all that is great about the British high street and has certainly been stopping shoppers in their tracks.”
