RIBA (the Royal Institute of British Architects) has today unveiled the Regent Street Windows Project, a free exhibition of architect-designed installations in the windows of Regetn Street retailers.
This is the 5th year that Regent Street has undertaken this project, and this year there are 15 brands on the prestigious street that have been matched with architects. From rolling clouds to moulded mannequins; clattering destination boards to recast wine bottles, the windows of fashion retailers, jewellery stores, skincare boutiques, perfumeries, restaurants and cafes on Regent Street have been transformed to feature architectural installations that reflect the brand and engage with shoppers.
Retailers that are taking part include: Gant, Hackett, Hobbs, Aquascutum, TOPSHOP, Brooks Brothers, illy, Jack Spade, Karen Millen, Longchamp, Banana Republic, L’Occitane, Penhaligon’s and Folli Follie.
The project celebrates and showcases London’s architectural creative talent in an accessible format and forms part of the London Design Festival as well as coinciding with London Fashion Week.
