“Good. Clean. Fun.” @ The Limited

Spring cleaning is here! The Limited is playing on this with their “Good. Clean. Fun.” campaign. White laundry carts make a large, yet airy, presence in the window. Coupled with the white hangers and the laundry bags, this makes for simple canvas for them to showcase their clothing. We are looking forward to seeing how they use these laundry carts in the future as they are a great fixture and prop!

J.Crew – Paper Plant

White paper plants of all sorts decorate this spring window display from J.Crew.  We admire their creativity with the use of simple white paper flowers. What a great way to tell a story for little cost. See our other J.Crew posts here and here.

BCBG: Back to the Basics (Black and White)

BCBG incorporated their new design featuring a new line of black and white clothing with complimentary props with the same color palette.

Although the holiday rush is over, we admire the continuation of gift boxes with a twist: white boxes with a black trimmed accent.  The boxes as well as the frames behind the mannequins are a subtle but influential touch which compliment the clothing very nicely.

Nordstrom’s Pop Up Shop

We were privy to seeing Nordstrom’s finishing installation on their newest Pop Up Shop. They have incorporated a new Fiat into the display. We love the industrial look of the fences as displays. We also love the ornaments used to create the messages. We love Pop Up Shops, and think that this is a great representation of one within a department store.

Trend Watch: Yarn

One trend this year has been the use of yarn in creating Pom Poms, Balls, and Sculptures and Frames @ Madewell. Here are three examples that we thought were very successful. Above are the Pom Poms at Neiman Marcus’s Cusp. Below are yarn balls going around the ceiling in a display at Macy’s.

Below is the wonderful sculpture hanging inside Free People. It adds a whimsical festive touch that compliments the brand very well. Nicely done by all. We hope to see this trend continue next year.

Express Holiday

Holiday at Express this year offered up a genius new concept for displaying product. It’s a half riser/half frame and it is topped off with a built in bow. These are great for hanging and they show product well. The metallic gold finish is a great touch for the holiday, but these can be used in any season without the bow. Great concept.

Carson’s Holiday

We thought that Carson’s has really elevated their holiday decor this season. They have moved to a more contemporary holiday theme and it works for their brand. The use of ornaments and wrapped gifts with the all white trees make for a nice contrast and inviting statement. Overall nicely done for a department store. We are looking forward to seeing what they bring out next year.

Sconces @ Guess Marciano

We are blown away by these beautiful metal sconces that Guess is showing in their Marciano stores. There are three sizes which make for an interesting visual composition, and the gold and silver are festive for the holiday season. These compliment the brand very well and can be used throughout the year.

Silver and Gold @ Alex + Ani

We are stunned by these beautiful glitter strands and table top stars from Alex + Ani. This up and coming brand is making a sophisticated statement this holiday season, and are right on point with the glitter and silver and gold trend that we have been noticing across the board. Very well done!

Guess Holiday

Guess’s holiday decoration this year leaned heavily toward New Years Eve theme. We like the sultry sophistication with the oversize light strands, the light up risers wrapped with bows, and the glitter red flooring.
