TOPSHOP x mekel

I teamed up with TOPSHOP in Perth for Windows of the City 2015.

I worked with an amazing team including Creative manager Andrew Lewis, to create 4 pieces of artwork that cover the entire Topshop/Topman glass windows. The artwork features the recently announced face of AW15, Gigi Hadid.

Gigi look was very neutral toned, effortless and relaxed, with black and white, leather and soft denim. We took inspiration from the current Perth Fashion Festival theme of ”Bold, Glamorous and Dramatic” to introduce jewel tones whilst still staying true current Topshop trend in London. The theme also mirrors the ‘Perth City lights up’ and will be lit up on display in the evening, be sure to visit it at both times!

To create the pieces, many large scale watercolour washes were created, scanned and then compiled together to create the finished 12 metre display. Each separate window was 4.5m across, watercolour is not meant to be this large so always a challenge. The top windows printed on transparent vinyl which creates a beautiful colourful effect when hit by the sunlight.

 

Want my artwork to keep? I’ve included it in my SHOP so you can buy as an exclusive print for a limited time.
