Sperry has an amazing bent wood set of “suitcases” in their windows right now. The blue and yellow stripe reflect the brand well, and the distressed finishing adds a good amount of character. Great way to tell the travelers story and merchandise shoes in a small window footprint. Looking forward to seeing how they continue to utilize these props.
Japanese designer KENZO is known for bold colors and prints; this combined with abstract fixtures gave them the perfect formula for an eye-catching window display. The windows in their Paris shop display a great use of contrasting textures to highlight the fabrics and slim silhouettes of their fall/winter 2014 pieces. One key abstract feature they used on all of their windows is replacing the traditional mannequin heads with industrial wiring. This definitely caught our eye here at CDW Merchants and it will undoubtedly catch the eyes of those who pass by the Paris shop!

Nike is looking to do all that they can to speed past Adidas in the World Cup 2014 market. They strategically released their new Mercurial boot and a series of ads to showcase its vast benefits. The key feature Nike wants to display is how light the boot is and how it will allow the wearer to be light on their feet and add more speed to their game. Nike was able to decrease the weight through the implementation of their patented “flyknit” technology, which is lighter than previous boots, while providing the same level of ankle support and lockdown.
Nike got extremely creative with their window display, and was able to showcase the shoe’s new design element and insinuate that it is built for speed. Adidas has their work cut out for them as they look to catch up. We look forward to watching the battle between Nike and Adidas unfold while we watch the World Cup action at CDW Merchants!

We thought this shoe display was a great way to show color and product at the same time. Goes to show you can do a lot with a low budget! See original post here.
CDW Merchants is proud to show off these windows! We donated some of the props to help visual merchandising students create these windows for a Saks competition. We love the white theme and were glad that we could give back to some of the great talent coming out of the LIM visual merchandising school. See some press from DDI here!
These headdresses at Guess Marciano are simply stunning. The pompous grasses give a beautiful feathery look. We love how these draw your attention into the display, but then allows you to focus on the apparel. Well done.
These flower Coach letters are awesome. The detail work of the flowers and letters are impeccable. The color theme is very fresh, and these definitely grab your attention. Bravo! See our last Coach post here.

There have been a lot of great themes this spring at Club Monaco. We want to recap what we have seen these last few months.
We loved the glass bubble ornaments early in the year.
It then moved into baby’s breath balls and bunches earlier this spring.
They followed that up with a wheat grass motif.
The latest window is a simple yet effective mass amount of various size paper lanterns! We are looking forward to seeing the next set of windows!
