Tropical: Roger Vivier, Paris & Dior, London,

There are various translations of the tropical jungle themes emerging on the streets of both Paris and London right now. Roger Vivier has to be one of the best for colour and illustrative display and Dior is hotting up for spring summer with its amazing suspended tropical undergrowth.

Mannequin Mask: SFD, Window Mannequins & Hans Boodt, Euroshop, Dusseldorf

Mannequin mask's made a big presence at Euroshop in Dusseldorf this year. Arty Wigs produced asymmetric make up and wigs for SFD mannequins with dual faces, Window-Mannequins wow'd us with interchangeable faces and features transforming different mannequin components whilst Hans Boodt mannequins featured robotic body parts with a selection of inspirational masks tapping into the desired personalisation. This trend is fuelling the demand for flexibility of changing mannequin components along with customization.

Copper: Bauholz Design & Genesis, Euroshop, Dusseldorf

Add some warmth and shimmer to your store windows this season with both polished and brushed copper - top of the material wish list featured at Dusseldorf Euroshop Show. We love these mannequins from Genesis which look dipped in liquid copper and also the clever copper fixtures mixed with raw unbleached wood by Bauholz Design.

Everyone in the world of VM made a rush to visit the Euroshop show in Dusseldorf last week. Whilst London Fashion Week was in full swing, we couldn't miss the showcase of new visual merchandising trends and the best of retail design in Germany. Jades designer fashion store located in Dusseldorf city centre are collaborating with Genesis Display, Derksen Lighting and Formlicht to produce these neon lighting inspired windows. We love the hand gestures which bring a cool contemporary edge to the slick designer product.

School of Fashion: Harvey Nichols, London

Forgotten to do your fashion homework on what to wear this season? Fear not, we absolutely love Harvey Nichols’ School of Fashion windows for a visual lesson on how to dress this spring. Each window tells a story, from the ‘bad girls’ preoccupied by curling their hair rather than going to gym class, to learning those essential ‘fashion maths’. With the fashion weeks looming these windows are so much fun, but we seriously want to buy all the products!

Mid-Tones: Miu Miu, Burberry & Louis Vuitton, London

Visual merchandising schemes in London are beginning to inject some colour onto our high streets as the fabulous new spring summer 2014 collections to emerge! Cool mid-tone visual merchandising palettes are working their way across the luxury fashion market at the moment, we particularly love the translucent coloured glass polka dots at Miu Miu, Westfield White City store windows.
