The Great British Fashion Stamp Set

Friday, 1 June 2012




The Royal Mail Service launched "The Great British Fashion Stamp Set" to honor the 10 top fashion houses in England. The list of brands includes iconic names such as Alexander McQueen, Paul Smith or Vivienne Westwood, but also less known brands for those of us that aren't British. The London-based graphic designer Johnson Banks worked together with fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo to create the illusion of movement on the stamps. They shot real live models wearing the garments and later removed the silhouettes from the photos and thus managed to give this sense of dynamics on the stamps. I think the end result looks pretty great and interesting!




















What do you think about this set of stamps? I think they look really good in the small format.What's your favorite one?

such a clever idea, my choice is definitely AMQ, but not because it is the most well known and popular one these days, because I love the design, love feathers. Lovely weekend : )
