From Alber Elbaz's faux red-carpet scene (featuring Lanvin-clad mannequins posing behind a velvet rope, all clutching plush Yorkshire terriers) to Hussein Chalayan's spare space (which showcases pieces hanging from a rope knotted between spindly tree trunks), the displays did not disappoint. Punk artist Jamie Reid, who designed album covers for the Sex Pistols, has even plastered the store's windows with slogans such as "lies, lies, lies," and "God save our yobs" (Brit slang for ruffians).
