To celebrate the release of The Iron Lady, British handbag designer Anya Hindmarch has dressed up the mannequins in her Pont Street store window as Margaret Thatcher.
The four Thatcher-esque models are dressed in cobalt blue, structured tweed, pearls and even a political badge. The clothes are a mixture of Marks & Spencer and Aquascutum.
Each mannequin has been crowned with a signature bouffant wig to pay homage to Maggie’s classic ‘do and every ‘Iron Lady’ proudly holds one of Hindmarch’s bespoke Ebury bags – the ex- Prime Minister’s favourite style.
‘The cleverest thing about Thatcher’s image was how her clothes never detracted from her character,’ says Anya Hindmarch. ‘That was quite a feat, I suspect, to look good and still not be talked about for your clothes.’
Hindmarch collaborated with costume designer Tamar Zaig to create the eye-catching windows. Zaig famously created the looks for the Thatcher puppet on the satirical television show Spitting Image.
The mannequins will remain on show until the 23rd January. Race you there?
