Harrods' christmas window 2014


Taking inspiration from the art of storytelling, Selfridge's Christmas windows celebrate 25 of our all time favourite fairytales. From Cinderella to Rumpelstiltskin Selfridge's windows are one hundred percent high fashion fairytale.

Equally fantastical are Harrods' windows transporting you to The Land Of Make Believe. Oversized vintage inspired toys adorned in unique designer wares are the stars of the show. From Zuhair Murad's pirouetting ballerina to Stella McCartney's princess, this is haute couture Christmas at its best.




Fortnum and Mason

Drawing on British tradition has always been Fortnum and Mason's bread and butter so it makes sense that their Christmas windows for 2014 delve festively into London's past. Specifically the famous 17th century River Thames Frost Fairs. When the Thames would freeze over, the city would host a carnival on the frozen water. Taking this historic event and bringing it to life, Fortnum and Mason's frost filled windows are truly magical.

Liberty's maritime inspired Christmas theme this year has got the whole InStyle team all aboard. From crows nests stuffed with unique Liberty gifts to walls of giant bronze coins, these windows are a treasure chest full of Christmas goodies.

Barneys New York

Here at InStyle we always feel that Barneys New York's motto must be 'More is more' and their Christmas windows are no letdown. Designed with a little bit of help from director Baz Luhrmann and his costume designer wife Catherine Martin, the 'Baz Dazzled' display doesn't disappoint. Huge theatrical sets take on an eerie fairytale feel as giant psychedelic toadstools and oversized metal owls dominate each window. Check out the animated displays below.



Bergdorf Goodman

Paying homage to The Arts, Fifth Avenue's legendary store has chosen a different artistic expression for each christmas window. From literature, theatre and architecture to painting, music and dance, each window features  a cacophony of luxury gifts and a haute couture mannequin displaying their theme.
