MY 2 HOURS STROLL IN LONDON.

Yesterday we where all day working with the Max Mara team in their new shop on Westbourne Grove. But more on my next post about this collaboration between Collectionsof.com and Max Mara Week End.
So after having lunch with some friends at the farmers Markets on the Kings Road, I had 2 hours to spend on myself and went walking from Sloane square to Knightsbridge and do what the French describe so well as ” lèche vitrine” what means exactly “licking windows” and the Dutch call so innocently as ” kopen met de ogen ” what means “buying with the eyes” and it is what I did

Nice weather and in an extremely good mood I went passing by and photographing the most amazing window displays. Sooooo inspiring and full of energy as the one from Harvey Nichols and Harrod’s or understated as the Gucci one. So chic. It stroke my eye without noticing immediately that it was Gucci. Seeing the Hyde Park number 1 from the Candy brothers is spectacular almost build in the middle of the street. They have the city life at their back and the Hyde Park greenery at their front.
My goal was the sales at the Uniqlo shop on Knightsbridge…. Drama… They closed down.. Pppffff need to go to Westfield shopping center now 🙂

Look at the pictures who speak for themselves.

And then I had to look for my favourite uniqlo shop that is replaced by a German brand that I don’t mention.
Anyway I was smitten with the enormous Gucci bags in recycled paper and the explosive Harvey Nichols displays. So, no cheap cashmere but my mind full of
wonderful ideas.

Have a nice time.
Sparkling of summer is coming to us the next days and we will enjoy the Car Boot Sales and….. The beach.
