Paper: Fendi & J Crew, London

London's shop windows have never looked so good and having survived a whirlwind of calender events for London Fashion Week and London Design Festival these past few weeks, retailers have really notched up the creativity on the high street. Highlights include Fendi's swarm of paper planes, in partnership with artists Blue + Joy. J Crew executed a perfectly folded paper envelope backdrop in Regent Street and over in Sloane Square J Crew's collaboration to save the bee's in partnership with Buglife shows beautifully crafted wild flowers sculpted from paper. The time and attention to detail on all these windows is commendable.
