Louis Vuitton® Plug-In Handform

Louis Vuitton Hand Redux CloseUp

Louis Vuitton Hand Redux MainA similar merchandising uses have been documented at Louis Vuitton® over the years. But a good idea remains a good idea, and who remembers other than ever vigilant FixturesCloseUp? Most interesting is that the disembodied hand is held by a thick base plinth sporting only a hole for insertion. So display hands could be plugged into many configuration of fixture or visual merchandising setup.

Robert Graham® Perforated Tray

Rock Climbing with Ralph Lauren

Rock Climbing With Polo Ralph Lauren Main

Coils of Nylon Rope Add Authenticity to Ralph Lauren Rock Climbing

Normally I do not associate the Polo® brand with something as basic as rock climbing or mountaineering. The Polo namesake has always seemed more gentile and upper crust. But maybe I am wrong, and just might feel the height of outdoor fashion if outfitted as here. CLICK the gallery for various focuses. REI beware. Ralph Lauren is pulling a recreational ascent. “On Belay.” Wish I had looked this good climbing Osmena Peak and the Kawasan Falls ravine in the Philippines with Planet Action Adventures.

Shoppers Grabbed by the Necktie

Grabbed by the Necktie Closeup

Grabbed by the Necktie AuxHow is this visual merchandising for button-holing passing shoppers and reaching out to offer a tie in a non-traditional way? From a distance it might have been a scarf or pocket square, so I just had to look closer to satisfy my curiosity. Then I also noted that even the hand form’s manicure was perfect,. CLICK the thumbnail for a broader view on the Museum Case display.

Slotted T-Stand for Neckties

Necktie Slotted T-Stand Main

An earlier post of a similar Porthole-Armed T-Stand demand that this Slotted-Arm Stand be memorialized too. Lightly propped here, it could offer a greater selection, and host tied and untied Bow Ties too. Small enough to be portable, it could also cross sell ties amid the suits and shirts.

Sunglass Sarong Clip on a Strip

Sunglass Towel and Sarong Clip Main

Sunglass Towel and Sarong Clip AuxA Towel and Sarong Clip made to look like Sunglasses? Normally I want my sunglasses to be sun-functional and only need a place to hang when removed. Using non-functional Sunglasses as a Sarong Clip seems a bit bass-ackwards. How about a Towel and Sarong Clip, that includes a built-in clip or loop for the functioning sunglasses? Damn. I knew I should have attended this particular product development meeting. In-store fixturing was Merchandising Strip to allow cross sell and impulse buy anywhere.

Sign Balancing Act

Good looking woodframe sign holders for table top. Safe enough there perhaps, but possibly a bit less so perched high above on Flatback Slatwall Single Prong Display Hooks. And add yet another level of risk in that the store caters to baby and children’s shoes and apparel. Just the place for playful young’uns to jiggle the display, topple the sign, and get clunked in the head. I originally took the shot to document the signholder and creative re-use on the perimeter. Then reason took hold and the focus sharpened to safety aspects. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup view.

Soccer Stylin’ at Bloomingdales

Bloomingdale's Soccer Score Style Goal

Bloomingdale’s Score A Style Goal Soccer Display

I guess if you can be called a “motor head,” you can be a “soccer head” too. Here Bloomingdale’s® suspends soccer balls above mannequin bodies to give visualization to the term. Whatever brand fishing line they used to create the insulin was excellent. It was totally invisible to the casual observer. It is reported that more American’s now watch Soccer than NASCAR. Maybe the other nations of the world will soon consider us civilized.

Apparel DIY Iron Pipe Display Main

Iron Pipe as retail fixture is available pre-built, in simplified modern interpretations like Kee Klamp®, or totally Do-It-Yourself as here. In all its incarnations it has an edgy, industrial, retro, and sometimes even high tech look.

Pipe Fitting as Merchandising Point

Pipe Fitting Hang Point Main

Pipe Fitting Hang Point AuxYou may laugh at the simplicity, but as a Do-It-Yourself store fixture solution, how many times have you seen it? The hidden benefit is that with only 4 hang holes, this pipe fitting allows you to face the merchandise directionally to target traffic flow of customer view. When you tire of it as an upright stanchion, you can screw both ends to walls and mack a bar or rack out of it.

Summer Merchandising Must-Have

Antique Fan Visual Merchandising Prop Main

Antique Fan Prop Overall AuxIf you don’t have the budget for a truckload of Beach Sand for in-store Visual Merchandising, maybe an antique fan or two can patch you through. I often see antique Valises as a merchandising prop., but the fan drives home the hot weather imperative of dressing and accessorizing light.

Circular Shadowbox for Shelf Edge

Hooped Purse

Simple visual merchandising and hardware closeups are the focus here on FixturesCloseUp. So how could naked metal hoops not make the cut? The circle made each purse the center of attention, while automatically allowing Acrylic cross members to be inserted as shelves at almost any height … no fasteners needed. My only comment: that a slightly better balance of back- and front-lighting be used. The dramatic backlighting pulled your eye to the black purses. But distance and weak front-lighting made purse details hard to appreciate.

Polo As July 4th Patriot

Polo Ralph Lauren Patriot Main

Polo Ralph Lauren Patriot AuxThough the flag waving may be downplayed at Polo Ralph Lauren®, the dramatic lighting and vivid red color creates a patriotic scene for sophisticates. Both men’s and women’s wear departments were decorated similarly for Independence Day. CLICk the thumbnail for a broader view. I’m not sure if those are fresh carnations in the background but the vivid red color reinforces the red in the red-whate-and-blue of our flag.

A Tommy Hilfiger® July 4th

Tommy Hilfiger Celebrates July 4th A

Tommy Hilfiger Celebrates July 4th BIf any designer has the correct branding colors for a patriotic Fourth of July display its Tommy Hilfiger®. Here he capitalizes on that advantage with bed linen releases for Independence Day and the early Summer season. The display itself is a bit visually jumbled when massed, but imagine it in the less cluttered environment of your own bedroom. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate angle including a signature Tommy Hilfiger needlepoint pillow.
