A slew of surrealist pop-up activations are spread across Selfridges, a popular London department store. The interventions are made by French fashion designer Simon Jacquemus. The installation in its entirety is called 'Le Bleu.'
From futuristic vending machines stocked with luxury bags to an aesthetic that is reminiscent of a seeming pool changing rooms, Simon Jacquemus makes his mark across a number of locations in the store. The main attraction amid the surrealist pop-up interventions is located in The Corner Shop—a creative retail space adorned with pale blue tiles, a large sculptural tube of toothpaste spilling its 'contents,' and more. This space spotlights items from the designer's Spring/Summer 2022 collection.
Jacquemus worked alongside experience design studio Random Studio on the surrealist pop-up installations. The collaborators used Jacquemus' bathroom as inspiration.
