Just try to pass by the all-orange windows at Soho's CB2 without pausing for a closer look. We dare you. It's impossible to dismiss this display in all its glowing nuclear radiance, looking like a MoMA-commissioned installation.
The initial surprise is in how many products CB2 has managed to stuff into that window and still keep it from looking like a junk show; towels and mini picture frames piled in with whole coat racks and glass tubes without obvious function. Actually, it is impressive that CB2 manages to make such a wide variety of items in this perfectly uniform shade of orange; GAP should take a lesson from them in color matching.
