WEEK. 21.06.19

Welcome to your Friday dose of WEEK: a round-up of what’s dropped over the last seven days.

Louis Vuitton show hits Paris

All eyes were on Paris yesterday for the mens S/S 2020 fashion shows. With Virgil Abloh at the helm, Louis Vuitton teased guests with a DIY kite invitation.

That was just the beginning - when guests arrived they were met by an entirely LV monogrammed street complete with bouncy castle, library, park benches and even a portable crêperie.

Louis Vuitton’s iconic brand assets have never been so widely applied. Its got many of us wondering whether this is all part of the Supreme effect.

‘An Unnecessary and Excessive Display of Celebration’ is inspired by the scientific theory that a specific tone of pink is capable of reducing aggression. For the 2018-19 season, Norwich City football club embraced the idea and painted their away changing room Baker-Miller Pink in a bid to gain a psychological advantage over their opponents.

Corona Mexico is joining the battle to fight plastics with a new innovation, ‘Fit Packs’.

Attempting to rid the industry of the plastic rings that hold cans together, Corona designed a packaging system capable of joining up to ten cans without the need to add any other material.

The brand released the design as open source in the hope the rest of the beer industry will follow suit.

Glossier’s Hypernature pop-up, Seattle

Glossier’s new pop-up in Seattle is a hypernature dream. With rolling hills of moss and flowers juxtaposed against the brilliant white walls and fixtures, the store frames Glossier’s beautiful packaging in a sea of nature.

As with all their stores, Glossier was inspired by the area’s natural topography, including Mount Rainier and a popular neighbourhood park.

Also unique to the Seattle store are reusable tote bags and "plantable" postcards, with wildflower seeds embedded in the paper.
