First impressions count. And British retail got it perfectly right when designing their shop displays in honour of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
Not only was ‘window shopping’ made even more fun and exciting, but it also made it more enticing to spend the pound sterling and purchase a piece of ‘a moment in time’. After all, a Diamond Jubilee tea towel from Cath Kidston comes around only once every 60 years!
So enjoy some of the great window displays, as seen on and around The King’s Road and Sloane Square, for what was a very ‘it’ shopping experience.
The fabulous L.K. Bennett, who started out with her first shoe shop in Wimbledon Village. Kate Middleton made this shoe of Bennett’s very popular when she wore it with several outfits during the week of her wedding.
The Best of British at Space NK. I can spend hours here just browsing!
Jack Wills. The British answer to Abercrombie & Fitch.
Probably the nicest JIGSAW location in London, at The Duke of York Square. As we happen to be talking ‘Kate’, this was the company she worked for prior to becoming The Duchess of Cambridge. Love the clothes at Jigsaw.
With her first shop in London’s Notting Hill in 1993, Cath Kidston MBE, has made her signature nostalgic floral patterns as iconic as the Burberry plaid. I happen to LOVE her toiletry bags and take mine everywhere with me!
Famous for her candles, fragrances and more, the Jo Malone scent is uforgettable. Loving the hot pink Union Jack bunting at this Sloane Street location.
The White Company, for all things ‘white’ in luxurious bathroom and bedroom linens. Would not expect anything less than a white display!
Even the Union Jack gets Orla Kiely‘s signature stem design! Love this Irish, London-based designer.
