What's in the window: the Brent Cross edition

Brent Cross is the nearest shopping centre to my house, so it is often the place I pop if I want a tiny taster shopping trip but to be honest, I was very disapointed with their store windows. Each seemed very formulaic and there was no real creativity or flair like the windows I saw last week on Oxford Street.
Nonetheless, here is the best of the selection:
River Island menswear
Office. Mmmm, shoes!
Acessorize. Of all the winters I think this is the best one, and it's the visual that makes it.
You see what I mean? I wonder if this is why Malls generally feel so soulless; because everything is so uniform and no real effort is made to present the stores as a present (its weird I know, but I like my stores to be a gift!) or create an atmosphere.
Here's hoping next weeks edition of what's in your window will look better and come from somewhere a little more exciting! Where do you suggest?
Love, Tor xx

I love the windows of river island. The animal heads actually made me enter the shop - which is something I wouldnt normally do.

Most stores have a template given to them to put up whether its Bournmouth, Bristol or Brent Cross. Oxford St is luckier in the showcasing of things. My fav windows are Fortnum & Mason so OTT and fab.

Good points on here. Creativity of windows presentation will always help to attract costumers. I've bought a number of outfits simply because I got drawn to windows presentation.

btw friend, I'm still waiting for you to link me back. Please add me to you blogroll. Thanks a lot :)

I'm hypnotized by all the shoes.
