Christian Louboutin, London

This was quite a difficult scheme to capture in its entirety when we visited; we're guessing that the refuse collectors were due the following day judging by the amount of boxes.  However, while it is not very clear which campaign this scheme re...

Notting Hill Carnival 2016 was a hot and sunny one!

The last 2 years at Notting Hill Carnival were rather hard work in the rain and the chilly temperatures but 2016 saw blue skies and a full burst of summer.  It's one of London's great events and a major feature in our diaries. I was taking...

Massimo Dutti, London

Lifestyle as a concept is clearly a key area for brands at the moment (although who's lifestyle we aren't sure).  With a scheme that looks more like Ralph Lauren than, well, Ralph Lauren, Massimo Dutti have yet again produced a superbly styled a...
