COS - In-store projection colour couture pt. 2

Custom projection software for fashion label COS. The second phase of the Colour Couture period introduced even more bulky shapes, and glossy leather accesory and a darkened colour-scheme. As projections show light, projecting dark colours is tricky, the use of simulated reflections from the windows then allow for glossy highlights to shine, creating a more sophisticated surface than the graphical-flats of the previous projection. The projection wass running in the COS stores in London, Berlin and Stuttgart during late autumn 2008.


 
COS - Colour Couture pt. 1
   
COS - In-store projection colour couture pt. 1

As summer ended and the autumn collection hit the stores, the focus shifted to bulky shapes and silhouettes while keeping the lightness of late summer colours. To help underline this concept, the projection uses the colours of the garments and generates a never-ending series of simple bulky shapes. The projection wass running in the COS stores in London, Berlin and Stuttgart during early autumn 2008.

COS - Everyday Poetry projection

COS - In-store projection everyday poetry

Custom projection software for fashion label COS. The brand uses large amounts of subtle messages where the content - the words - are heavily crafted and the graphic design is massively understated. Dureing late summer '08 the stores was converted to a poetry theme. The software takes three poems - all printed in vinyl on the windows - and dissolves them by highlighting individual lines within the poem to later start pasting in lines from other poems, thus creating a distraction from the meaning of the poem. The projection was running in the COS stores in London, Berlin and Stuttgart during late summer 2008.
