Here are some interesting things I found while perusing the web:
These first photos are from the store Man 1924 in Madrid, the photos are taken by Scott Schuman of The Satorialist. I think the store owner does a great job of layering the clothes with different textures and fabrics. I especially like how they display the pants, much simpler than pulling them on the bust-form. Dressing bust-forms is far more difficult than mannequins, because you have to create the shape and volume so the clothes don’t lay flat.
Here’s a cool video recently released by Barney’s, it gives you a quick behind the scenes peek on how the Christian Louboutin window’s were created.
Have you heard or seen the new store C. Wonder? Entrepreneur Chris Burch, and force behind the Tory Burch brand, has branched out and opened his own lifestyle store! C. Wonder takes store ambience to a new level. Each sales associate comes equipped with a iPad for purchases, and you can change the music and lighting in your dressing room!
Here are two types of visuals used to help solidify and brand the image, a cool bus and a beautiful wall mural:
The use of bold and bright colors makes this store look like a really fun place to shop!
The cashwrap does not look like your traditional register area – love it!
I have to admit it looks like Tory Burch meets Kate Spade. Do you agree?
Great merchandising, this it what your dream closet would look like!
Lots of WOW factor without being too over the top and in your face! Notice that the store design is simple with a few architectural touches here and there; what is drawing your eye in is the use of color everywhere!
The light fixtures are teapots!
