Selfridges has launched its Bright Old Things campaign today, a twist on its annual Bright Young Things initiative.
The campaign seeks to celebrate creativity later in life. Fourteen nominated creatives will design their own Selfridges window display, while some will create special-edition products to be sold in its stores in London, Birmingham and Manchester, as well as the online site.
Nick Wooster has created a window display for the Oxford Street store that will showcase his first collection as a fashion designer and present his street-style photography.
The Wooster and Lardini capsule collection, which retails from £210 to £820, will be available within the London store’s Bright Old Things boutique, the men’s formal department on the first floor and online.
Eyewear designer Robert Pope has created two exclusive frame shapes for project, which will sit alongside his mainline collections of both opticals and sunglasses, priced from £167 to £187. The frames for both men and women will be available from the Bright Old Things boutique, contemporary accessories on the ground floor and online.
Others included in the showcase include fashion editor-turned-painter Molly Parkin, food writer-turned-artist Sue Kreitzman, writer and performer Bruno Wizard, actor and painter William Forbes-Hamilton, topiarist Tim Bushe, artist Sand Laurenson, painter Andrew Ekins, sculptor Michael Lisle-Taylor, furniture designer Den Woods, artist and consultant Roger Miles, vlogger Tony Gibson and textiles artist Sally Peplow.
