Fantastic Miniature Worlds of Nature Bursting with Color for Hermès Window Display in Dubai - Floral Full

The French duo Zim and Zou have graced us with their stunning works in the past, from vintage electronics to colorful chef's masks covered in festive fruits and veggies. All in all, their work has an underlying theme of colors in unique combinations and their attention to detail.

These two papercraft window displays are for the opening of a new Hermès store in Dubai (Mall of the Emirates). Through this project, spectators have a sneak peek at the curious characters living inside this nature filled environment. One window has a motif of a mushroom village, while the other shows blooming flower huts. This microscopic point of view shows plants and other vegetal life reigning as masters, like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run.

Artist Creates Magical Campaign Promoting Christmas in Bristol Crafted in Paper [VIDEO]

Sam Pierpoint Creates Magical Campaign Promoting Christmas in Bristol Crafted in Paper

Currently residing in the rural countryside just outside of Bristol in the Mendip Hills, paper artist Sam Pierpoint works both commercially and artistically, for a variety of different purposes ranging from advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays.

She was recently commissioned by Peloton Design who wanted to collaborate on a Christmas campaign that would cut through the noise for Visit Bristol. They decided upon a paper sculpture of Bristol that would capture some of the cities most loved attractions. This cityscape is moonlit in the night, and created with G.F Smith papers in a muted color palette of white/champagne. LED lights were carefully threaded through the sculpture to create a warm and inviting glow, allowing for the fine details of the structure to almost glisten against the dark backdrop. The advertising campaign, which also included an editorial illustration, a publication illustration, window display and a making-of video, featured below, successfully helped to promote Bristol as an exciting and magical Christmas shopping destination for 2016.

Merry Christmas From Bergdorf Goodman!

Merry Christmas from Bergdorf Goodman

First and foremost Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I hope everyone has had a great year and is ready to take charge in 2012!

For the holidays my friends and I had the recent pleasure of gathering to do a walk New York to check out the many Christmas windows up and down Fifth and Madison Avenues. One window that particularly stuck out in my mind for its sheer beauty and my love for zebras, was the Bergdorf Goodman window displays.

This year one of their windows entitled "Teacher's Pets" showcased a 3-dimensional classroom, using 300 different types of papers, filled with black and white paper animals. Those animals included the life-sized paper zebra, ostrich, panda bear, aardvark, white peacock, and more. As the 'students' posed within the cascade of zoological textbooks, the teacher – dressed in a black and white lace Marchesa gown – presides over the paper bestiary. New York calligrapher, Bernard Maisner, provided hand-lettered labels, in Latin, for all the animals. Below I have included some of the close-up shots I got of the window, though needless to say they were mostly of the zebra. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday!
