Menswear Windows and Displays

Let’s face it. Most men aren’t big fans of shopping. So advertisers and visual merchandisers need to catch their male customer’s eye quickly to grab their interest to come into their store and shop.

Here are a few current window displays and in-store displays for menswear and the menswear department.

Theme – there seems to be theme of clean-cut-ness in upcoming menswear. Collars, tailored cuts, and a dressier look is what is being shown in store windows and displays.

Culture – I have to believe that this tailored trend is coming from the “trickle down” theory where influence is coming from celebrities and important people in society. The idea of dressing more cleanly and maintaining and image of “upscale” is becoming very popular.

Silhouettes – As stated before, clean cut, slim silhouettes are continuing to trend in current displays.

Some lovely window displays went up in the Big Apple for the Lunar New Year, and while I could have lunmped them into my last post I felt that they needed their own blip.

Visions of your closets future….

ImageFound a great blog in my research for window displays in the 212… and behold, Donna Karan’s nightmare….Almost as bad as the sassy phrased velour track pants and sweats that can be seen on college broads the world over….

TO THE BLOG! http://sohowindows.blogspot.com/

Go to it, it’s neat. A lot of what I’ve spotted in that blog are glimpses of what makes 212 great. Visions of these nooks and crannies, the kind that make out of town folk cringe and locals rejoice. If you can’t find it, you won’t ‘infect’ it with your middle America-ness, amirite??

But beyond that, it also showcases one of the few places in America where you can still find a plethora of small boutiques and businesses that flourish- even if only for a brief time. The good news? Once the light dies on the little boutique, another new flavor of the month is ready to swoop in and take it’s place.

The issue with this blog though is that it’s frightfully slow in updating, which presents quite the challenge for viewers like me. But free press is never on time. And thus- I move on. Google, save me!….

Google…? Hello? Oh, you only have a zillion posts for holiday displays? Santa is great and all- but ….I finally found a flickr stream that’s updated frequently and has the info on when and where this stuff is…. and the results are in: Bright pop colors (Especially LEMON!), mod themes and Leah’s favorite: the Burberry metallics.
