Pocket Square Parade

Pocket Square Profiles Composite Fancy Pocket Squares seem all the rage this season. So by special request I add to my Kerchief and Pocket Square thead. Though no true store fixtures here, I thought stepping through examples of this seasons offerings might be a good overview and way to kick-off coverage. CLICK through the gallery for a closer look at each style.

Pocket Square Plantings

Pocket Square Garden Blossoms Main

From a distance looking like a small garden or tray of plant seedlings, an acrylic tray allows Pocket Squares to be displayed in anything but a square manner. It may take a second for you to realize what is offered, but ties and other nearby men’s accessories quickly provide visual clues. CLICK the gallery to step successively closer and see how it works.

Pocket Square Jumble

Pocket Square Bouquet Main

I liked the splash of color and informality among the strictly organized ties, but it was just those aspects that made it difficult to distinguish what these were even close up. Maybe one or more folded, draped or hung would have added clarity and more quickly communicated “Pocket Square.” Please understand this is not a criticism. I merely try to learn from others and add a bit if I can. CLICK the gallery for various views. Overall organization is a declined clear acrylic tray with sidwalls for containment.

Pocket Squares Piles

Kerchief Folded Main

Kerchief Folded LevelAn unused, out-of-the-way space was not left unmerchandised by floor staff. Folded pocket squares take up the slack and add a spot of corner color. This is certainly not a main display, but possibly echos the accessory and seasons accessory color to out-of-the-way places across the department.

BCBG® Cosplay Crowning Glory

 

BCBG Mannequin Headpiece CloseupBCBG Mannequin Headpiece OverallIf your mannequins are simple and stylized, a good contrast is accessorizing with rich detail.

Only belatedly did I notice that not only Joe Fresh® apparel was identified, but Worthington® offerings as well.

My main interest however was the the use, design and construction of the Hang Tags as branding and merchandise identifiers.

Raise-Your-Hand for Goth

Hands Up for Skull-and-Cross Bones Main

Hands Up for Skull-and-Cross Bones Detail2Even Goth Girls need cosmetics and utility bags. This one emblazoned with Skull-and-Crossbones would look very stylish at a Goth Pajama-Party-and-Sleepover. I don’t think older Goth Girls carry this much when crashing at their boyfriends pad. The hands-in-the-air fixtures were an integral part of the eye-appeal of this display. Store Staff just elected to promote the Goth bag, rather than the Heart, Plaid or Burberry galoshes emblazoned styles. Probably the best choice. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.

Red Apparel Rest Stop by Isaia®

Isaia Napoli Seating Overall

Isaia Napoli Seating CloseUp AuxA small area rug in the Isaia-brand Spring 2014 signature red, and echoes of red in the Isaia Napoli signage, pillows, mannequin ascots and sleeve patches define this space as part store-within-store, part well-decorated rest stop. True I would have to relocate the pillows in order to totally recline, or sit perched on the edge for only a shot respite. Still every store should offer some scattered seating not just Neiman Marcus®, if only as a token of respect for someone of my lengthening age. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup of chair and pillows.

Wrap-Around Retail Seating

Molded Wrap-Around Seating Overall

Molded Wrap-Around Seating CloseUpI am a fan of seating in retail. Though I am usually on my feet and mobile, there are times when my wife overstays my level of interest in a department, and a place to rest and while away the wait is welcome. It need not even be padded or comfortable in the long haul. This seat does not invite me to curl up and nap, but the color, modern design and manufacture makes an interesting visual statement regardless. The geometric print area rug and bumped up lighting make this spot perfect for a “time out” … whether voluntary or enforced by my wife.  CLICK the thumbnail for closeup detail.

Digital signage offers the discount in percent, but also item-by-item regular and sale prices in fine print.

Perforated Shelf-Edge Shoe Ledge

A Shoe Ledge and Sign Holder overhangs the shelf edge and projects into the aisle to better display merchandise and attract attention. Made from perforated metal to match the shelving, it provides a natural extension of the display. Perforated metal patterns are a common and distinctive architectural feature in building design. Why not shelf design? Simple rings and extruded sign holder complete the fixture setup.

Indigo: A Color or A Brand?

Indigo Banner Main

Indigo OverallThis is such a great fabric banner concept that I was temped to imagine it touted Indigo as a brand not as a color. But no ® or ™ laid claim to the name, so it must be pure backdrop for “blue jean” sales. But let’s be precise. Indigo is its own special color, different for common, run-of-the-mill Blue. And this Banner helps prove it. CLICK the thumbnail for more Indigo,

Belt Loops on Wood Hoops

Jeans Pegged on Wood Loops Main'

Jeans Pegged on Wood Loops OveralWood fixtures add a subtle, natural appeal to any retail environment. And yes these pants could have been displayed directly from the Wood Pegs. But that might seem too much like a dorm room holdover. Adding nicely-finished Wood Hoops through the belt loops kicks the look up a notch. This is obviously now a display, not today’s cast-offs or yesterday’s laundry. See that the Wood Loop halves swivel open if necessary to snag even reluctant offerings. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate look.

Keg ‘O Caps

Keg of Caps Overall

Keg of Caps CloseUpThe wood of Nail Kegs and Barrels provide a natural appeal all their own. Here a small keg is placed atop a wood crate to position Caps as a cross sell to Sweat Shirts, T-Shirts and other apparel. Highly portable the Kegs can be move throughout the store easily, and used to display any merchandise. See that the keg staves are held in place by wood hoops not metal. A nice touch.

Keg ‘O Tees

Keg of Tees Main

Keg of Tees Keg of Caps Contrast AuxThis small wood Keg provides a pedestal-like cross-sell to T-Shirts anywhere throughout the store. Wood staves and wood hoops provide a get-back-to-basics feel. A “bottom” only inches down from the Keg opening means you don’t have to fill the keg to keep merchandise visible. It is supported near the top. CLICK the thumbnail for a detail look at the raised false-bottom.
