Here are a few sale window displays that caught my eye this season. I am very excited about seeing more props and clever design saying sale sale sale in the many ways imaginable.
I am particularly fond of the Diesel Sale Window where they use a cut-out that is finished with red thread to give it the red-white sale finish. A very eye-catching display, the message is very powerful and the simplicity of the concept dramatic.
Poetry hung red and white ribbons hung a sale clad in red cloth in front making a strong statement.
Canterbury made use of the red and white colour on their merchandise in a line of mannequins wearing red and white.
Finally Truworths made sale outfits for their mannequins out of plastic.
