As if there weren’t enough reasons to visit the nation’s favourite department store already, John Lewis is currently in the throes of a summer-long ‘National Treasures’ campaign, shining a spotlight on the best of British life, design and culture.
Windows are resplendent, featuring a series of witty and colourful illustrations by award-winning graphic artist Paul Thurlby – each epitomising different aspects of a typical British summer – not least the unpredictable weather we so love to hate!
Once inside, customers are drawn to a ‘national treasury’ pop-up, showcasing an eclectic selection of quintessential British products– and including of course a trusty Anglepoise®.
