THE CURRENT WINDOWS OF THE LOUIS VUITTON SHOP ON BOND STREET ARE A DREAM OF CHIC.

DE CHIRICO-ESQUE WHITE PLASTER CARROUSEL HORSES AND VAST BAROQUE CURLIQUES LEAP AND TWIRL AMID GLOWING CURVES  OF LIGHTS….I WAS PARTICULARLY INTRIGUED BY THIS ONE.

WHICH SEEMED SOMEHOW FAMILIAR, WHEN I STOOD BACK I REALISED THAT THE CARTOUCHE READS “N H”. OF COURSE!… ON THE SUBJECT OF LIGHTS, COULDN’T SOME CLERK OF WORKS AT BUCKINGHAM PALACE REPLACE THE BLOWN BULBS IN THOSE WONDERFULLY GRAND LANTERNS ON THE PIERS OF THE GATES TO THE FORECOURT?

MAKING SURE HER HOUSE DOESNT LOOK SHABBY IS THE LEAST WE CAN DO FOR THE QUEEN’S DIAMOND JUBILEE…IT IS SUCH A MOMENTOUS EVENT, AND ONE WITH SPECIAL RELEVENCE FOR ME AS MY MOTHER WAS BORN ON THE DAY OF QUEEN VICTORIA’S DIAMOND JUBILEE. SHE WAS DULY CHRISTENED DIAMOND WITH QUEEN VICTORIA AS HER GODMOTHER.
