Christmas Windows: Selfridges’ Oversized Winter Wonderland

I am a bit of a Christmas nut, I love putting the Michael Buble album on repeat, eating copious amounts of mince pies, wrapping up warm with a hot chocolate watching festive movies, and each year I love checking out the Christmas decorations and window displays. If you follow me on Instagram you will have already seen a giant snowglobe in the middle of Piccadilly, a huge reindeer in Covent Garden, as well as sparkly displays in Leeds, and a rocking robin on Carnaby Street. Well yesterday, in between meetings and events, I decided to wander past Selfridges on Oxford Street to see their fashionable take on the festive season, which is all a bit like ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ with its oversized gifts and tiny people and animals.

The windows are amazing and probably the department store’s best to-date, I love the oversized concept – from the giant Charlotte Olympia kitty shoe with twitching ears to an larger-than-life YSL clutch, a fantasy sized Play-Doh and the largest pair of Dr Dre Beat headphones you will ever see. Plus there is a special window for my favourite doll, Barbie.

These windows are certainly a sight to see, my pictures don’t really show off the wonder at looking at them in person. What I loved about seeing the windows up close was that I wasn’t alone, yesterday I took in the creative displays with an elderly couple, they were super sweet and they were telling me that each year they take in all the windows as a festive treat – so cute!!!

As well as loving all the oversized gifts, what captured my attention the most were all the little details, and when I say little I mean the little Santa’s dancing, playing instruments and directing airplanes, the penguins playing, the skaters on the Grey Goose drink, and the elves dancing – seriously adorable. Oh and who couldn’t love the snowy landscapes.

Have you been to check out Selfridges’ Christmas windows yet and visiting the emporium on the fourth floor?
