Today was an early start all about ballgowns and crowns at Harrods and the V&A and it was amazing. First stop was Harrods where they’ve transformed the store into a very patriotic scene to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubilee, think lots of Union Jack flags, and windows filled with crowns.
Everyone from De Beers and Tiffany & Co, to Paul Smith and Prada and even beauty brand’s Shu Uemura and Jo Malone have designed a special crown just for Harrods and they are all on display in the store’s windows.
It isn’t the best shot, the traffic is crazy so always reflects on the glass, but I just had to share this amazing crown covered in ‘hundreds and thousands’ candy pieces designed by Mulberry. As soon as I saw it I was in awe, don’t get me wrong I love the jewels of the traditional designed crowns, but come on this is fun and different and I am loving the addition of the cushion designed like a classic English Victoria sponge cake for it to sit on.
The Harrods Brompton Road windows filled with crowns and ballgowns will be on display until June 15 so get down and check out them out.
