JY Design Workshop posts that Honeysuckle is the Pantone color of the year, 2011. That hot pink color made a strong appearance this past Christmas (2010). Cobalt blue was right there to support it. The trees and houses were especially beautiful this year with all that wonderful color. We even saw lighted lawn deer in cobalt blue. We had to drive home that way (out of our usual route) every day. It was magical.
Window displays create a wonderful Christmas scene in city after city. Those bright lights that keep us from the dark of winter. The lights that promise and often fulfill.
The Window Display Blog is always wonderful and inspirational. This past Christmas you could already see the honeysuckle promise of spring. And who better to tempt you into her world than Barbie. Have you noticed a string of Barbie window displays? We guess it had to do with her 50th.
The Window Display Blog also showed its Honeysuckle leanings with this image for the window at H&M, Oxford St, London. The blogs tells that the faces were drawn on the mannequins for this launch of Lanvin for H&M.
But all was not color. The Window Display Blog posted “White Christmas on the High Street“. Here the mood celebrates the cold, white winter.
Pop over to the blog to see what inspires you. The windows themselves are fleeting. They last only a short time. The blog archives them for your learning and viewing pleasure.
There are many great websites that showcase the visual displays from various cities. About GoNYC has posts with images of the displays in major New York city store windows. Refinery 29 has a post called Store Tour: The Best Holiday Window Pics with links to great stores like Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, and Saks Fifth Avenue. FashionTrendSetter does have a post from 2006 with many images. And Fashion Industry Network has a group for Fashion Store Window Displays. Enjoy.
