James Brett's Museum of Everything pop-up is extraordinary,
the "Store of Everything" is fantastic .......
but Selfridges "Windows of Everything" are the best!!!!!

Imagine devoting every window on Oxford Street, 
a gigantic city block in London,
spanning the front of one of the world's greatest stores,
to "everything" that can't be sold!!!!

This is a phenomenal design installation,
and I applaud the Selfridges team for being sooooo brave!!!

This is a major tribute to the arts ....
but I can't help wondering,
who in NYC would ever be this brave????? 

Marc Jacobs "Knocks-Off" Christian Louboutin!!!!!

I loved the Christian Louboutin Mount Street windows in London!!!!!
They were sent by my London Design Spy (blog 3/1/11)!!!!

 

So, you can imagine how thrilled I was to see similar windows,
at the Louboutin store on Horatio Street, NYC!!!!
 
THEN, I drove past the Marc Jacobs on Bleecker Street ......
 
I WAS SHOCKED!!!!!
THE MARC JACOBS DESIGN TEAM
HAD KNOCKED OFF THE LOUBOUTIN WINDOWS!!!
 
WOW ....... they should be sooooo embarrassed ....
I thought they were smarter than that!!!!
