Cath Kidston's event.mp3 (248.29 Ko)
As part of its fun social media-led campaign, Cath Kidston* will ask its customers, brand fans and celebrity friends to share their size preference and the contents of their bags, declaring whether they are the kind of girl who wants to be ready for any eventuality, or the kind who only carries her absolute essentials. This exciting project will culminate in a four week long photographic exhibition at Cath Kidston’s flagship store at 180 Piccadilly (London, UK).
The exhibition offers the public an exclusive look into the essentials that celebrities and influencers carry in their everyday bags, and with this, a rare glimpse into their personal lives. In addition to the celebrity bag contents, the best images submitted by the public will be chosen by the creative team at Cath Kidston to be showcased in a rolling gallery within the exhibition and window displays at the brand’s flagship store. In a fun twist, and in true Cath Kidston style, the exhibition space at 180 Piccadilly also includes a bespoke Ames Room, using mirrors and distorted reality to create an optical illusion of any pair of visitors being oversized or shrunken down - allowing exhibition guests to share their own photographs of themselves.
The exhibition runs until the 14th September 2014.
