Carnaby collaborates with The Rolling Stones for Christmas
Carnaby is pleased to reveal a collaboration with The Rolling Stones in celebration of their 50th Anniversary for the 2012 Christmas installations. Carnaby is world famous for its music heritage as well as its fashion heritage and this year’s Christmas designs will be a very special project with the greatest rock’n’roll band in the world.The Christmas decorations will consist of huge 3D spheres suspended throughout Carnaby Street containing gold and silver vinyl records emblazoned with the bands iconic artwork and album covers. The Carnaby arches will also be dressed with The Stones iconic tongue logo. The outdoor installations tell a visual story from the band’s creation in the 1960s to the present day.
The installations will launch on 8 November 2012 and will be in place until 6 January 2013. In addition there will be a Rolling Stones pop up shop in Carnaby. This will be a curated space that will sell limited edition apparel and prints plus the band’s new Greatest Hits collection GRRR!, released on 12 November . A limited edition canvas shopping bag will also be available for Carnaby shoppers.
The Rolling Stones / Carnaby relationship started in the 1960s. The band would often frequent the shops in Carnaby Street, and just round the corner in Broadwick Street they rehearsed for their first live shows.
