It was the most english rose out of the whole bunch. Dolce & Gabbana gave us an amazing fashion show in London, which saw them taking over Harrods Food Hall and transforming it into a runway for one night only. And the only thought I have when it comes to overtaking Harrods, is eating all the immaculately presented desserts… But that wasn’t the end of these two working together… For the most magical season out of the year, Dolce & Gabbana creatively designed Harrods Christmas windows.
With Harrods being a well known tourist attraction year-round, the Christmas window has to be the best of the best in the UK, let alone London. What can get better than animated puppets, disco balls and cuckoo clocks? Only the creative brains behind Dolce & Gabbana, that is who.
Harrods are renowned for its designer collaborations. Does anyone remember last year? When Harrods partnered up with Burberry for their 'A Very British Fairytale’ window display? Well, we can say goodbye to the British heritage and welcome the European. From the Italian food markets and exclusive men and women's ready-to-wear collections and accessories, it is bound to be a very fashionable (and festive) D&G Christmas!
Seeing Christmas through the eyes of Italian designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, will be a Christmas wish come true. The talent behind the luxury italian fashion house, will showcase elements of their own Christmas traditions as well as their latest collection. Each display is showcased on Brompton Road and Hans Crescent (that is if you haven’t gone and checked it out already).
Helen David, Harrods Chief Merchant, talked about the collaboration saying “Domenico and Stefano take us through their festive Italian Christmas via the exciting window displays that they have created for Harrods. Our windows this Christmas will be alight with tradition, the love of family, and an all-around celebration of this special time of year with a hefty dose of fun and Italian spirit”. And if that doesn’t get you excited, then I don’t know what will.
Taking over Harrods, Dolce & Gabbana managed to transform the window into an Italian Christmas feast for the eyes. Tip? Just make sure when you walk past the window, to have already eaten something… Going past this display on an empty stomach doesn’t end well with a look of delicious food. Taking on different scenes that mirror the Italian lifestyle, varies from a homely kitchen to a tailors.
If you are at home reading this and you are desperate to know what creative level Harrods have reached this year, but you can’t move out of your comfy sofa… Then you can watch the beautiful window display here.
Be right back, off to go stare at the display again… Dolce & Gabbana have set the bar high for next years Christmas windows.
