Matches – String letters

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] We are always delighted to be asked by the creative team from MATCHESFASHION.COM, to collaborate on their window and instore displays.. [/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...

Matches Fashion – London Fashion Week

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hello Flamingo love working with the creative team at Matches Fashion and were so happy to be asked again to create their London Fashion Week AW18 windows in their Marylebone and Ledbury Road stores. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] With the tagline ‘The Innovators’, the idea was to create an art movement in the windows, with the brutalist London landmark The Barbican as an inspiration. Taking the design from the client, Hello Flamingo manufactured freestanding sculptures made from polystyrene, with a concrete textured paint effect added. These structures stood in the window amongst the mannequins. Hanging MDF back panels were given the same concrete effect finish and were graffitied, using print from the new season’s as a starting point, by a Bristol-based street artist to add to the urban/city vibe. The windows looked great and were really well received. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Miss Sixty – Westfield

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Miss Sixty, the Italian fashion brand, came to Hello Flamingo with a concept for their SS18 window displays, for their Westfield, London and Brompton Road stores. [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="25px"][vc_column_text] The design concept, which will be seen in Miss Sixty stores internationally, was made up of hundreds of beautiful spring coloured flowers, tumbling from floating urns, floating mini birdcages filled with flowers and a vintage swing with floral arrangements. The window props were produced in-house at the Hello Flamingo workshop, just outside Brighton. A polystyrene former created the base for the cascade of flowers. Carved by the team, it held its own weight with the urn attached. And the hundreds of flowers were hand applied to give the impression of them spilling out of the urn. This pretty scheme really embodies the change in season and has been well received by the client. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

A giant lightbox/mini theatre was built in another, for a display of sock puppets (supplied by the client). The very stylish puppets were held in place by wooden mannequin hands, sourced by the Hello Flamingo team.
