Pop Up Shop – USA – Johnny Cupcakes

Location: 2 Dock Street, Edgartown Massachusetts – Martha’s Vineyard USA. Date: Friday August 12th – Saturday 20th August 2011 A Joke that started from the trunk of Johnny’s ’89 Toyota Camry. A college drop out with a drug and alcohol-free lifestyle, he never wasted his time going out and partying but instead focused only on brainstorming and sketching up his wacky ideas. He turned down investors and took countless risks like keeping his shirts out of chain stores. Now he has his very own chain, but his Pop Ups are something to be celebrated! Back To The Island! The second annual Johnny Cupcakes at Martha’s Vineyard Pop Up Shop is playing host to exclusive tees, shirts & stickers and will only be available while stocks last. This is going to be a fun way to end the summer.

Interior – Commes Des Garçons – Good Design Shop

Comme Des Garçons – Good Design Shop, Shibuya-Ku 
Tokyo, Japan With a penchant for bringing artisans and designers together, Kenmei Nagaoka’s D&DEPARTMENT PROJECT  have come up with this GOOD DESIGN SHOP. Nagaoka’s curation approach is almost gallery-like, transforming a rather cluttered visage into something very palpable for all. With a look of a of a surplus store, we love the density of the merchandising, while everything still remains shopable and visible. The store is located in Japan and we hope they translate the same concept and bring it over here!

Campaign – American Apparel – NSFW Ads

American Apparel has long been known for its range of stylish and on-trend basics, and for its raunchy, controversial advertising. In the words of Jeremy Kyle.. “WELL, WELL, WELL!”, AA have had a breakthrough new advertising strategy: pictures of classy girls removing their panties—but drawn in pencil. This changes everything. It’s not porn if it’s drawn! Take a look through this ‘top drawer’ material, the NSFW ads –  and decide whether American Apparel has crossed the line between sexy ‘art’ and trashy porn. Thoughts? …

Campaign – Common Sons – Pop Store Commercial

Sky Atlantic paid us a little visit last week. They came to film us at the set of  a photoshoot for knitwear brand, Common Sons. We chose a quaint location on the riverside of Hurley’s Boat Builders, ‘Peter Freebody & Co’. The team here at Pop Store Commercial were set a brief to find a location that reflected Common Sons ‘British Made’ roots. We chose Freebody’s Boat Yard as it represented British manufacturing at its best. The boat builders’ old-school approach to work and their attention to detail was very refreshing to see, and an influential environment to shoot in. The producers of Treasure Seekers (Cineflix Productions) came down after  contacting us about any up-and-coming Campaigns we may have in the pipeline. So… we invited them down to Freebody’s after the owners kindly allowed us access to their yard to shoot our look book for Common Sons. Both shoots went really well and we were happy with the results. The Common Sons. look-book and Treasure Seekers episode will both be available for viewing in Autumn this year.
