A Magical Execution of Retail Brand Design
Occasionally we’re reminded that whilst not all brand expressions are born equal, all brand gestures have the potential to be sublime. Recently I came across a retail window display for fashion brand Hermes in their Maison Hermès store in Tokyo. This beautiful example of visual merchandising designed by Tokujin Yoshioka will be on show until 19 January 2010. See the stunning clip of the retail display after the jump…
‘On designing a window-display of Maison Hermès, I intended to express people’s daily ‘movements’
with a suspicion of humor. there are moments when I perceive a hidden presence of a person in
the movements born naturally in daily life. I created a design where one can perceive someone
behind the scarves as if life were being breathed into them.
the window is designed with an image of woman projected on to a monitor. the scarf softly sways
in the air in response to the woman’s blow. ‘ – TY
