Fashion Bloggers Take Over Holts Windows

Yesterday I stopped by Holts again to take photos of their ode to the blogosphere. I couldn't help but chuckle as not all the windows really capture the essence of the blogger they are supposed to represent. Apparently the bloggers themselves had no say in it. Sorry for the reflections in the windows, I didn't have my polarizer on me at the time. Darn. Also, check out Anita Clarke's window from the Bloor Street, Toronto location. I think it's much more snazzy than Vancouver's.

Tommy from Jak and Jil




Garance Dore



Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist


Anita Clarke from I Want - I Got


Bryan Boy



Jane from Sea of Shoes

Yeah, they aren't the greatest representation of the bloggers' styles really, but they're still really cool. I'd love to see them in person. Well-thought-out window displays are a guilty pleasure for me.

Sabrina said...

Tanya:Yep, that's my boy Kevin :)

Ashley said...

Tommy's window is the best by far but I don't think Jane's suits her at all.

this concept is TRULY GREAT!
goes to show how wardrobe/fashion bloggers are rapidly influencing the industry. Really a breakthrough

thanks for posting!

It's sort of hilariously wrong that the Jak & Jil one has no shoes in it....

knitkicks said...

i wish i had a display! i would have lots of knitwear and yarn all over the place

dust said...

lack of better ideas.............
you guys deserve better

La Dauphine said...

I think it's a great idea but would have been a lot better if they got the input from the bloggers.

Neat! I had no idea this was going, I'll have to walk to Holts this week and see!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Ok, that's super nationals.

izzy said...

Awesome idea, but the execution falls short of excellent, in my opinion. I mean, leggings on Jane Aldridge? And I don't see a touch of femininity on Bryanboy! Too bad, cause the idea would have had great potential.

wale said...

Good idea... but that doesn't say: Jane Aldridge at all!! not even the shoes choice!!!

Elaine said...

that is awesome! I love this idea!!!

I wonder what non-blog readers think when they see these window displays, probably puzzled...over a year ago I probably wouldn't have had a clue, but now...I think it's absolutely brilliant!

Some of the windows are a little off (as though they didn't research the blogs enough), but the concept is fabulous!!! It's really cool that companies are reaching out to bloggers now. Regardless of how perfect the window is, these bloggers must be so flattered!!!

Miranda said...

wow those are great! i hadn't even heard about thiss... and janes is very cute!

susie_bubble said...

I like the idea but the execution is a little off...would love to see other dept stores do something similar..

etoilee8 said...

I second Susie's thought. They meant well!
