Moschino: Cosmetic

It is always a very nice moment to find a Moschino boutique everywhere I travel. The reason is Moschino window display always look as fun and playful as the clothing collection. The latest discovery is at Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur. There are cosmetic products like lip stick or nail polishes standing among the mannequins. One of the nail polish bottles are opened and the liquid is coming out. Very feminine concept but not the boring one.

McQ: Wild birds

The only McQ Alexander McQueen boutique in South East Asia is located at Starhill Gallery, the most luxurious mall in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This nice but small boutique has a very simple window display concept that is wild birds. It may sounds complicated but in reality it is not that fuzzy. The main properties used here are not the mannequins or the dried death birds but the stickers of birds and dried tries. These stickers are describing the flying birds in the wilderness vividly.

La Martina: Polo team

When I travel to Kuala Lumpur earlier this month, I found a new favorite brand for polo shirts called La Martina at Pavilion mall. It is an Argentinean brand that focuses its business on polo sport outfits and also other fashion products. It supports Argentina national polo team as well as some international polo teams and tournaments such as English national team. The window display of this brand is decorated with a very nice and detail depiction of a polo sport team. The athletes are posing and lounging in their home base wearing complete polo outfit and its equipment. Excellent!

Ralph Lauren: In the ranch

Ralph Lauren brand might always be associated with the polo sport, but now the Ralph Lauren Collection, the most expensive line of the brand, is focusing on equestrian world through the ready-to-wear collection and also jewelry and accessories. This focus can be seen at the women section window display of Ralph Lauren at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore, last September. Stacks of hays are spreading throughout the window space. There is a live size black horses mounted by a lady mannequin in a chic outfit. Luxurious riding boots complete the vivid look of the concept.

DKNY Jeans: Balloons

It is two days already after the Christmas festivities, but we can still find the joy of holiday season everywhere. The example is this DKNY Jeans window display at The Gardens Mall, Kuala Lumpur. All the mannequins are carrying metallic color balloons with each balloon has letter shape of D, K, N, Y ,J, E, A, N, and S. The concept and the properties might be very simple, but it looks so special and festive.

Jade: Soldiers

So proud that Indonesia, especially Jakarta, has a local multi-brand boutique that sells high-end designer collections as well as has a very excellent conceptual window display. The name of the boutique is Jade and the one with very nice display is located at Plaza Indonesia. This Christmas, for example, there are four giant white soldiers with golden nose stand at the red colored window display. The meaning of this display might be absurd as soldier has no correlation with Christmas. Hope the creator of this display read this post and willing to tell me the meaning.

Givenchy: Pine forest

Givenchy window display for this year's Christmas has a universal concept. There is no obvious or to-the-point Christmas decoration. There are two faux pine trees on the window display. They stand above the ground full with shredded woods as if it is a wild pine forest. Amidst the sober and dark appeal of the display, a Givenchy Resort 2013 dress hung at the center point.

H.E. by Mango: Icy room

Nowadays, extreme climate change is a big big issue for this universe. Long hot-sunny-summer days for tropical countries, extreme-freezing-winter for the European, dangerous storms, and the melting of Arctic and Antartic. This nature force happenings is now used at the H.E. by Mango Christmas window display. Here, we can see a working room that already filled with snows. Hope this display does not turn into reality.

Stradivarius: Christmas greeting

Stradivarius window display for this Fall/Winter 2012 is about lettering and wording. Thus, there are some words hung on the ceiling and become the background for the mannequins. Those words are now being replaced with Christmas greeting by saying MERRY CHRISTMAS. To accompany this word, there are large bells hung around the mannequin. The other window has different greeting that is New Year but in the form of a very unique sticker. Why do I say unique? Because the sticker looks like a cracking point of the glass window.

Hermes Purifocat Saint-Louis: Snowy orange Christmas

Red might be one of the signature colors of Christmas but Hermes keeps using its own signature color, orange, to decorate the Hermes Purifocat Saint-Louis window display. Hermes orange boxes with dark brown Hermes-logo ribbons become the main attention among the snow white cotton that are spreading everywhere. There is also a sleigh ride that carries the fabulous Hermes table ware line but not the Santa Clause who is too small for the sleigh ride.

Tumi: Magical suitcase

I always wait for Tumi window display each year since this luggage brand always creates surprising window display design. After last year's white Christmas town, magical suitcase is the core theme for this year's Christmas. White papers birds are flying out of suitcases that are put in the window display. Blue sky with falling white snow become the perfect background to give a peaceful atmosphere. Beautiful.

Aurora in rainbow colors light appears in the sky.

Ted Baker: Naughty snowman

The image of snowman is always cute, fun, and adorable especially in the infamous Christmas song 'Frosty the Snowman'. However, Ted Baker put a very naughty snowman in its window display this Christmas season. This snowman has the widest smile compared to other nice-smile-fellows. His cheeks look red and his eyes are so witty. If normal snowman wears a checked shawl, he is wearing a red tanga and (trying) to pose in it sexily. This snowman might be the most fun and fearless ever !

G2000: Wrong location


Mid Valley Mega Mall

G2000 makes a surprising set of window display this Christmas season. It is a beautiful depiction of polar environment with snowy mountains, snowy grounds, and some little penguins. However, to find mannequins wearing working suits, the main commodity of this brand, is totally a shocking situation.
