Selfridges Goes Back to the Future


Selfridges, my favourite British department store, is famed for its unusual and art-inspired windows. In the past they’ve had nude window models, painters and neon signs, and the latest offering is no short of fabulous.

With a summer slightly more disappointing than usual, Selfridges launched their new window scheme two weeks earlier than planned last week. Enter the future of A/W ’08 with its blocked colours and futuristic shapes titled ‘Cubic Futurism’.

Inspired by designer, Louise Goldin (whose collection itself was inspired by Mars), this Dr Who / Star Wars look is vibrant and eye-catching!


Perspex cubes in crazy colours, complete with robots and fabulous patent handbags from the likes of Vivienne Westwood and Mulberry (loving that new Roxanne tote in patent red) create the look.

So, head on down to Oxford Street and check it out. You never know, you might even be able to pick up some leftover 70% off designer bargains at the same time!
