FORTNUM & MASON: CHRISTMAS WINDOW WATCH
Theres not a single string of Xmas cards up in 10 Towers yet, let alone a Christmas tree. We are the modern sort, but this isn’t our attempt at Crimbo minimalism. We’re WAY too busy to deck halls! Never mind- if we need a dose of Christmas cheer, the windows at Fortnum & Mason have been decorated in the grand tradition. Sparkle smothered, and rather campy. We’re nipping out on our lunch breaks to press our noses against the steamy glass. The mannequins riding some sort of a carousel reindeer, and has antlers herself. Not sure if she is a she actually….little bit draggy in her feathered finery. We bloody well love it!
