6 Jul

Shhh don’t tell anyone, but Nike has re-opened their underground sports store 1948 in Londons Shoreditch.  The store is in an area known for fashion hipsters and is around the corner from ultra trendy members club Shoreditch House, and rumoured new location of an East-London Prada store . . .

Taking it’s architectural que from the railway arch it is situated in it balances clean lines with the occasional pop of linear LED lighting – feeling a little more like an Apple store than a true sportswear store we’re sure that this is going to be one of our favourite shopping destinations this Summer.

 

art/design: Si Scott studio simply sizzles!

13 Apr

You’ll have seen his work, trust us about that.  Having produced art for the likes of Nike, and Coca-Cola, the British based Si Scott made an obvious choice for today’s word on art, but is it art or is it design?  Well we here at AP. like to think it’s a little of both, and happily Si Scott himself agrees describing himself as an artist/designer.

Listed on his website as “priding himself on an almost obsessive attention to detail” and going on to say ‘creating the highest calibre of work possible for the studio’s clients, exhibitions and projects”. Looking at some of those examples of work we’d have to say that we agree, and luckily for us that magnificent work isn’t limited to corporate commisissions.

 

His website says that “Si regularly exhibits and lectures around the world, places such as Tokyo, Sydney, Toronto, Norway and New York amongst others”, so keep your eyes peeled, Si Scott could be coming to a studio near you . . .

topshop: a look over Nike store design.

5 Apr

Nike is a name we normally associate with being a global sportswear conglomerate, not one with great store design, well no more.

Nike’s new global store design concept. Developed initially in the USA this has now been rolled out globally with the UK leading the way with the largest programme of store openings in this guise. The aim is to reflect on Nike’s image as a world leader in sportswear as well as their sports heritage.

The sportswear giant ha made strenuous moves to remain current and ahead of the curve with cutting edge store design that not only keeps it in the game with other sports retailers, it proves Nike can cut it up there with the fashion big boys . . .
