Public Displays with Affection

I was in the sort-of college town of Savannah, Georgia, to visit an art and design college that has pretty much taken over the downtown community, and it was great to see retailers getting into the spirit of things and employing visual displays designed by students for their shop windows. I stupidly didn't take any photos, but Marc by Marc Jacobs, Urban Outfitters and others all had fabulously creative window displays (because I was there during Halloween, everything was just a little more out there too).

I had thought that Christmas displays didn't go up until after Thanksgiving, but I guess the shops couldn't wait, because when I headed up to Massachusetts a few days later in early November, they were chock full of ornaments and snowy set-ups. At Anthropologie out in Dedham, I snapped these random shots of various things they had in the shop, including a giant turkey-like thing made completely out of burnt newspapers. As much as I love Lane Crawford window porn, I do wish we got this ilk of creativity in our shops in Hong Kong...

PS I can't wait till Xmas!
