canada: croquet, anyone?

celebrating the arrival of spring, luxury retailer holt renfrew unveiled the croquet, anyone? window installations at nine stores across canada. the store's creative director john gerhardt drew inspiration from the work of early paparazzo slim aarons, 1980s publication the original preppy handbook and last but certainly not least, the prep-school trends in the spring 2010 collections by designers such as ralph lauren, nanette lepore and oscar de la renta. the croquet, anyone? window installations feature mannequins playing with giant mallets and brightly coloured croquet balls, and will be on view at holt renfrew until mid-may. © holt renfrew / photography: deryck lewis
