[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] Taking visual cues from the rugged terrain of the scenes in their new campaign imagery, shot by renowned photographer Victor Demarchelier (Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, V Magazine), sleek mirrored plinths and cubes were juxtaposed next to a sculpted floor of natural moss, autumn long grasses, and large boulders and rocks, creating something modern amongst an atmospheric traditional landscape.

Space NK – Clean Decoded

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo were very happy to be asked by the creative team at Space NK to produce their July window treatment for Regent Street. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] We were asked to create a series of interlocking cubes in varying sizes to give the illusion of being stacked on top of one another. The cubes were then used to showcase product as well and imagery from the July campaign in the form of printed vinyl featuring the photography of the ingredients from the new product range. In keeping with the natural ingredients, we added orange, lemon, tomato & pepper plants to add extra zing. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Lindt – Fruit Sensations

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo were approached by Lindt to create a bright, innovative and engaging window display for their four Lindt boutiques stores in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds and Bluewater. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] The window display was to launch their new product range – Fruit Sensations which featured three fruit flavours – Dark chocolate pieces with Blueberry & Acai, Raspberry & Cranberry and Orange & Pink Grapefruit. The design team at Hello flamingo came up with a bright colourful concept to showcase the three flavours in 3D to give the windows a fun and playful feel. Hello flamingo manufactured white washed wooden frames and plinths, using the artwork from the packaging we then upscaled the design to create a 3d display to give the impression of individual fruits cascading into a pile of fruit and chocolate pieces. The overall effect was really strong and eye-catching. As a result , it has driven customers into the store and the...

Ted Baker – AW18

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] To highlight their ‘Great Unexpectations’ range as part of their AW18 collection, Ted Baker required a quirky but also slightly sinister photo shoot set, brimming with forest and floral elements. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo created huge backdrops for their prints, with traditional gilt moulded frame details, and a bespoke parquet floor was laid, for a huge gnarly tree prop to ‘explode’ from. Branches and logs were also supplied to compliment the massive floral arrangements that Ted Baker had supplied.   All of the set pieces were made to be changed and updated throughout the shoot, with build and de-rig time kept to a minimum.   In addition to windows and instore props, if you have any film set or photo shoot requirements, please let us know, we are always happy to get involved!

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] Working with the design brief from the client, which was: "The inspiration behind the window was our Muses - the women that we buy for each season. My intention was to represent each woman in a series of looks and make them more 'real' by adding a fabulous but natural hair style to each mannequin. A simple theme was really key here as I wanted the focus to be really all about the men and women we were representing.’ Words representing the different types of MATCHESFASHION.COM client, including ‘The Romantic’, ‘The Fashion Intellectual’ and ‘The Minimalist’, were cut from Foamex and then hand wrapped by the inhouse prop making team with black and white yarn. The scheme ran from inside the store suspended above mannequins into the windows of the Ledbury Road, Marylebone...
