Prada Disguise x Bijou Karman

  • Sam Russell Walker

Back in Spring 2019 Bijou Karman was invited to collaborate with luxury fashion house, Prada. Working on a series of illustrations which would be used to promote their SS20 eyewear collection. Taking her undeniably cool 300 Polaroids project as inspiration, Bijou created bold patterned illustrations which can be downloaded as Instagram story filters via the Unfold App. The illustrated digital frames were created in order to promote Prada’s new range of SS19 Disguise sunglasses across social media platforms whilst giving the fashion savvy an opportunity to interact with the reputable brands SS19 campaign as seen through Bijou Karman’s creative lens. To coincide with the Prada Disguise campaign, Manrepeller had members of their team put on the SS19 Prada shades and pose, serving up facial expressions which best described their personality. Bijou then had the further challenge of interpreting these images with Prada’s stylish frames in mind, creating nine playful illustrated polaroids to sit alongside articles on their website and social media platforms.
