New York, NY, 2016-Aug-25 — /EPR Retail News/ — For Fall 2016, Bloomingdale’s has teamed up with NYC artist Greg Lamarche to illuminate the retailer’s 100% Bloomingdale’s fall campaign. Born and raised in New York City, Lamarche’s inspiration comes from the energy of the city and its role as an incubator of graffiti art. Lamarche’s artistic style emulates this season’s trend of mixing textures, fabrics, and colors creating a unique showcase for Bloomingdale’s exclusive fall merchandise.
“Being a native New Yorker, for me Bloomingdale’s was part of my experience growing up,” said artist Greg Lamarche. “Now, having the opportunity to work with this iconic brand is both exhilarating and an honor.”
“Bloomingdale’s is excited to join forces with renowned artist Greg Lamarche for our Fall 2016 100% Bloomingdale’s campaign,” said Frank Berman, Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Bloomingdale’s. “Each season we look to broaden our roster of 100% Bloomingdale’s collaborators – from designers to performers to athletes – in an effort to create both exclusive merchandise and experiences that our customers won’t find anywhere else. Greg’s dynamic artwork brings a playful energy to our Fall campaign and creates the perfect backdrop for the season¿s top trends.”
Kicking off the campaign are eye-popping displays in the iconic Lexington Avenue windows as well as the Third Avenue windows at the 59th Street Flagship beginning September 1st. Lamarche’s signature collages are showcased alongside Bloomingdale’s 100% Exclusive merchandise with several interactive moments including a giant cell phone selfie station as well as a word search wall comprised of Lamarche’s eclectic letters.
A collection of limited edition merchandise featuring Lamarche’s graffiti and bold letters will be displayed in dedicated pop-up shops in all Bloomingdale’s locations beginning September 1st through October 31st and on www.bloomingdales.com.
