Selfridges Christmas Windows 2012 - Duke Street

Whilst Not Your Usual Christmas reigns over Oxford Street, the Selfridges Duke Street windows have been transformed into snow filled landscapes against a glitterscape sky. A flotilla of sledges, impossibly high present stacks and even an iceberg are just some of the sights featured in these windows.
 And mannequins with beards - I love a beard.

Selfridges Christmas Windows 2012 - Not Your Usual Christmas

Faithful Reader - for any of those that follow me on Twitter and Facebook will know that for the last  seven nights, the Selfridges Windows Team have been installing the new Christmas scheme, inspired by the fairytale Christmas promotional campaign shot by Bruce Webber. Christmas is mammoth - so for now I shall just share with you the Oxford Street run of windows whilst I sort out the rest of my photographs.

Once again we worked with fantastic crews, talented creatives and hardworking individuals to produce what is a truly extraordinary set of windows which need to be seen for real to appreciate them to their fullest.
