EASTER WINDOW DISPLAYS IN DUBLIN

NOT SO MUCH EASTER IN THE WINDOW DISPLAYS, DUBLIN 2017

Early morning on Sunday is the best time to take photographs of the window displays, the town is still sleeping and the streets are empty. The only problem is the reflection of buildings, buses, cars, and myself! But this time I tried to turn it into an advantage and show a bit of Dublin architecture at the same time. Like kids who are looking for chocolate eggs hidden in a garden, I went searching for an Easter window display!

For some time, I wasn’t  paying much attention at all to the windows of Dunnes Stores in St. Stephen Green Shopping Center … simply because I did not think they were that great. But I was nicely surprised during my walk, last Sunday. Their style very much resembles displays on George Street, in my opinion, one of the best in town. Always.

There is a very strong present of Joanne Hynes funky style in most of Dunnes Stores windows, the displays are very colourful with a story behind it (what I like the most). A young girl went out shopping, she got inflatable jungle toys in her trolley. The colours and the patterns of a jungle must have been an inspiration for Joanne Hynes collection. It is a bright, tropical and a very playful display.

BROWN THOMAS

Not much Easter in Brown Thomas windows this year, rather than eating chocolate eggs and bunnies the store is encouraging the potential buyers to get fit, sign up for yoga classes, go for a run or join the gym. I quite like the construction behind the mannequins, it reminds me of a graphic symbol that stands for an option on a treadmill – called Fat Burn! Ha, very clever idea 🙂

CHANEL

I don’t really get the hidden clue behind Chanel window display … It all looks very digital, electronic, colourful cables connected to the accessories … yet the mannequins style is very 1920s, 1930s. What’s the message? The technology is changing but Chanel style stays the same – is that it?

HERMÈS

Hermès display refers to the classical Greek columns, here they could mean long tradition. The columns are very elastic. Is it a similar message as in Chanel windows? Hermès is classic and adaptable …? Perhaps.

GRAHAMS SHOE STORE

Very few stores created Easter display in their windows, I find Graham Shoe display very cute with the little chicks and rabbits living among shoes and high hills, like if that was their natural environment. It put a smile on my face 🙂
