Harvey Nichols nostalgic classroom memories
This seasonâ€™s window display at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge plays with the notion of â€˜Fashion School.â€™
We recall the once exciting prospect of a dashing new satchel, patent black shoes and rainbow leather notebooks to accompany that back-to-school feeling. Paying homage to our nostalgic classroom memories this season, weâ€™ve transformed the floor-to-ceiling window displays to provide you with an education on the must-have pieces for your spring/summer wardrobe.
In a kaleidoscope of paint-sprayed colour, black-inked handwriting and oh-so-sweet drawings, each window reveals a different scene from the once much-used school timetable. Humour and storytelling is a continuous thread running through the scheme: from the subtle hand-drawn elements on the back wall, to the mischievous mini doll replicas interacting in and around the window space, all styled in Harvey Nichols branded monochrome uniforms.
At a quick glance youâ€™ll see the likes of a P.E. changing room, a science lab and an obligatory store cupboard (thrown in for good measure); but on closer inspection, each whimsical scene has been given a luxe, high-octane twist: an Alexander McQueen clutch here, CrÃ¨me de la Mer bottles there, and seriously stylish school uniforms featuring the hero staples of the season. From Stella McCartneyâ€™s crystal-embellished dress and 3.1 Phillip Limâ€™s pom-pom bomber jacket, to Givenchyâ€™s covetable Bambi-print jumper and Christopher Kaneâ€™s neon-striped separates: look and learn, for a lesson in SS14 style.
