There is always something special about Christmas in London. If you want to discover a city with holiday spirit, you should go to British capital. Here you have everything, Santa Claus, Christmas trees, choirs, twinkling Christmas lights, candy stands, ice skating, roasted chestnuts and much more. Traditionaly, London stores battle it out to win title of best Christmas window display. This year is no exception. So, Harrods’ 2016 Christmas windows have been revealed!
“Once Upon a Christmas” is the theme for Harrods in Knightsbridge, where each window will feature a stage complete with performers, lights, scenery and red velvet curtains.
One window features Burberry’s Thomas Bears at the theater, while Balenciaga’s window showcases a swinging circus performer decorated with Christmas accessories. Stella McCartney’s window includes a lineup of mice working on Christmas orders, while Bottega Veneta’s fall bag collection was assembled next to the strongman’s weights in the circus tent.
In an ode to Hansel and Gretel, Rosalind Miller’s 88-pound gingerbread house is displayed and surrounded by treats from Godiva, East India Co. and Ladurée in a wintry forest.
But, the real magic is beneath the floorboards. Actually, the retailer raised its windows by 23 inches, and created a magical world of Christmas mice, with Peter Pumpernickel returning to lead the entertainment as they play and prepare for their Christmas celebrations, to allow kids to view at eye-level.
