London - The UK's biggest and most famous sex toy store, Harmony on Oxford Street, has reported an uplift in footfall since the launch of their Fifty Shades Darker window display.
The display was designed in house by the Lovehoney team and the project was spearheaded by Laura Wood, Lovehoney Sales Consultant. Entitled 'Masquerade Ball' the scene depicts two mysterious figures dancing by the light of a chandelier.
The haunting scene is reminiscent of scenes from the soon-to-be-released Fifty Shades Darker movie.
A full cross-section of Lovehoney staff members were treated to front-row seats at the star-studded Sex Appeal 6 comedy evening in aid of Brook, the young people's sexual wellbeing charity.

This is the fifth time that Lovehoney has sponsored the annual fundraising event.
It continues an ongoing relationship with Brook that has also included the provision of some written content for the charity's comprehensive advice website, created by Lovehoney's team of sexual wellbeing experts.

We did it! Lovehoney's Creative Team are in the news today for winning The Drum's Creative Work of the Year 2016.
How do you make an ad for an online retailer when broadcasting restrictions mean you can’t actually show what they sell? That’s the challenge creative agency Brave faced – and conquered – in creating a TV ad for sex toy retailer Lovehoney this summer.
The ad featured bonking furry rabbits and cheeky spanking with a fly swatter took centre stage as Brave turned to innuendo for the post-watershed ad.
Speaking at the time of the launch, Helen Balmer, brand and marketing director at Lovehoney, said: “We’ve had fantastic feedback through research on the ad from people who say it’s exciting, humorous and playful. Everyone who had seen it ends up with a big smile on their face.”
The campaign marked a change in direction for Lovehoney which previously featured couples talking about their positive experiences with the brand. As the first sex toy retailer to advertise on television, Balmer added that it works hard with regulators to create ads appropriate for post-watershed schedules, “no sex toys feature, just lots of innuendo – a staple of British humour.”
