Liberty Christmas Window Display
I head to London’s most renowned department store Liberty to see this year’s Liberty Christmas Window Display. This year Liberty have drawn inspiration from The Nutcracker ballet. Also Working in partnership with the Royal Ballet to create amazing festive window displays.
Featuring scenes from the nutcracker ballet complete with music and so festive. And of course with an added touch of Liberty print and unique Liberty style. The Liberty store always looks amazing especially so during the festive season.
Clara at the Christmas Party
The first festive window of the Liberty Christmas Window Display is “Clara at the Christmas party”. This is the first Christmas window visitors see when walking from Regent street.
The window features a giant Christmas tree decorated with apples, stars, hearts, diamonds and pretzels. Also ballerina Clara is stood in front of the tree admiring the decorations. And surrounded by gifts also wrapped in Liberty print festive wrapping paper.
The world of Drosselmeyer, Magician and creator of Mechanical Toys
The next window is “The world of Drosselmeyer, Magician and creator of Mechanical Toys”. This window features the Magician spinning in the centre with his cloak flying as he spins.
The most visually stunning and detailed window. Filled with cogs and clocks, sheet music, tools, rope and also toys. The magician’s cape gives him a greater sense of movement as he spins and stops so really bringing him to life.
The Magical Journey Through the Kingdom of Snow
The next window is “The Magical Journey Through the Kingdom of Snow”. An amazing stylised recreation of the penultimate scene of the Nutcracker ballet.
In the Snow kingdom window Ballet shoes and also costumes rotate in time to a medley of Nutcracker music. It evokes a festive winter atmosphere and so will be a favourite with ballet fans.
The Sugar Kingdom in the Kingdom of Sweets
The next window is “The Sugar Kingdom in the Kingdom of Sweets”. So in this window Liberty combined the Arabian Nights and Chinese dancing scenes from the nutcracker.
The background of the window features Arabian, Chinese, Spanish and also Russian pavilions. Spinning parasols inspired by the Chinese dance scene from the Nutcracker. Also ballerinas arms dancing in the style of the Arabian nights scene spin out from the parasols.
The Nutcracker’s Battle with the Mouse King
The next window is “The Nutcracker’s Battle with the Mouse King”. Toy soldiers defeat the Mouse king in a scene from The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.
Finally the toy soldiers and mice fight and so the mice fall defeated.
