Inspired by the relationship between England and Italy, the “BRITALIA” window display pays homage to a famous scene in a Luigi Pirandello play. Inspired by Italy’s famous Renaissance architecture, the all-white windows fuse the drama of Italian operatic and theatre sets with winter opulence, showcasing the majesty and wonder of Christmas.
Innovative lighting techniques (including and utilising a mixture of UV, chandeliers, candelabras and cumulus clouds) and reams and reams of paper (1300kg over all!) provide a impressive backdrop for mannequins dressed in the finest English and Italian fashion designers. Keep an eye out for the transformation that happens at nightfall – channelling the true playfulness of the Harvey Nichols brand!
