Winter !- # 265

Richmond cultivates itself as a boutique shopping destination. This display of BLACK reached out and grabbed me as I walked by. (Somewhat disturbing). The shop is COP. COPINE on Hill Rise - severity in soft sheep's wool.

  1. Dressing funerals is the thing this winter. Saw similar displays in ZARA and H&M yesterday.

  2. I must say I like a bit of black but in the tropics it is always something strappy.

    Am disappointed I don't seee Rabaul on the window - what is the story?????

  3. Of course I like this B+W shot - that lettering would be lost in a colour shot. However my main thought here was that the combination of wool, cold weather and apparent lack of sous-vĂȘtements is asking for a bad case of joggers nipple.

  7. I must say i find your comments in relation to this shop window rather shallow....Firstly to say that Richmond cultivates itself as a boutique shopping destination is a joke... Richmond now is exactly the same as any other high street dead and boring with exactly the same shops as everywhere else... When this shop opened it was a breath of fresh air to have something so different..
    yes the clothes are black but if you look at the sign in the window it quotes .. Yes we mainly do black ... but we do black very well!
    As for the comment made by Peter.. methinks you had better check out their website i think in total there is around 80 shops worldwide.....
