French creative duo Zim & Zou never cease to amaze me. Their latest colourful paper universe was for the window display of the new Hermès store in Dubai at the Mall of the Emirates.
Titled ‘Forest Folks’, the duo adds a little magic into the retail world by creating two different scenes referencing a fairytale world including oversized mushrooms, florals, and whimsical creatures.
“Nature is surrounding us and never ceases to evolve since its beginning. Its run defines the world we’re living in. Nature is linked to every living being, and every living being is linked to it. In this project, spectators have a sneak peek of the curious characters living inside this environment. This microscopic point of view, where plants and other vegetation reign as masters, is like a kind of picture, a flash, a precise instant in nature’s unrestrained run. Life is everywhere, flowers are growing, and they carry away its inhabitants in their impetus. These mysterious people are evolving, building, and living right in the heart of nature, revealing a fragment of their daily life.” – Zim & Zou
The handcrafted details of each piece are incredible, to say the least. Can’t wait to see what else they come up with – I’ll certainly be stalking their Instagram for more news to share with all of you.
