Vin­tage in vogue


Vin­tage shops come back to life at Har­vey Ni­chols’ shop front at Knights­bridge, where the re­tailer’s lat­est win­dow in­stal­la­tion cel­e­brates the Queen’s di­a­mond ju­bilee with the Bri­tish high street of the past. Sweet nos­tal­gia of the 1950’s acts as an in­ter­est­ing back­drop to also show­case the lat­est in vogue.

Other must-see shop fronts are the cheeky Har­vey Nick­ers lin­gerie shop and The Knights­bridge Corner Shop which is com­plete with sug­ary sweet con­fec­tions from the Har­vey Ni­chols Food­mar­ket set amongst this sea­son’s candy-
