Selfridges, a major department store in London, is preparing to experiment with the idea of gender, as part of a new eight-week-long pop-up shop across three floors.

As part of the project, Selfridges will do away with male and female mannequins in its windows.

“The project will act as a test bed for experimentation around ideas of gender –- both to allow our shoppers to approach the experience without preconceptions, and for us as retailers to move the way we shop for fashion forward,” Linda Hewson, the store’s creative director told Retail Week. [via]
