Picture of the Day: Clothespin Dress

A floor-length sleeveless dress at Harvey Nichols
Harvey Nichols in Pacific Place is reigning the roost with its creative store windows.

Previously places like New York and London gave artistic license to store window designers to produce a talking point for customers and the curious to lure them into the department stores.

And now Harvey Nichols has brought this tradition to Hong Kong to show the city what real shop windows should look like.

The other day we passed by and our eyes were arrested by the sight of a fantastic sleeveless floor-length red dress -- made of clothespins.

And it's completely made of clothespins
Complete with a bodice and ruffled dress we were mesmerized by the hard work put into not only beautifully executing it, but coming up with the idea in the first place.

The only minor fault is that it looks like an Amazonian woman 10 feet tall should wear it.

Nevertheless we love the effort put into these window displays and look forward to seeing more creative arrangements at Harvey Nichols.

Even though we can't afford anything in there, at least we can admire it from the outside.
