Selfridges shoe department, London. The display is completely different than any shoe department I have ever seen. The shoes are used almost as planters in the back with vines sprouting. The shoes on the middle display look haphazard with some order. You can tell they are specifically placed, but with no real order. The eye is drawn to the overall uniqueness of the display. The bright colored shoes on the top shelf definitely steal the show and pull the eyes in to these items as well.
Express, King of Prussia. There is a lot of product in this small space, but it is organized and keeps the customers from looking all over the place. The silver balls in the middle create a strong visual element that leads your eye to the middle of the display where the mannequins are. The pops of red contrasts well with the blues of the jeans that are surround the room.
Marc Jacobs. The glass windows from floor to cleaning, along with the clean, sharp displays of the store, give this display a modern feeling. The staircase to the right looks extremely stylish and sharp. The use of the stark white also helps create this modern feeling. THe round table reflected my the round pirce on the ceiling give the space movement and fluidity.
Munich. This display uses line to its favor with very sharp, bold lines and shapes. The checked pattern is very think and creates a visual while still making the space feel sophisticated. Other than the light fixture, there are all rectangular shaped items and visuals to give the space a rigid, sleek feel.
Saks Fifth Avenue, Mexico City. The colors are grey and boring, until your eye reaches the bright saturated colored display to the back right. This color brings your eye to the red dress in the middle of the store. Using the neutral grey in most of the store with an accent of light can help a merchandiser train their customer to look exactly where they want them to look.
Villach, Austria. The saturated color gives the space a warmer feel because pink is a warm tone. At the same time, this color can distort people's view of the store because the whole place is saturated in this pinky-purple color. The red elements still stand out in the store.
Liverpool, Mexico. The shape to the wall directs your attention straight back to the mannequins on the back wall. The shape of the wall resembles that of a contour of the lower half of a body, which is what the mannequins are. This creates balance, which it is informal since the mannequins are not perfectly symmetrical.
