Scoop, a premium contemporary womenswear show, has announced that it will be debuting its Autumn/Winter 2020 campaign in London.
The show will offer an exclusive edit of Autumn/Winter 2020 collections from designers, as well as a partnership with animal conservation charity The Aspinall Foundation, to support its mission to ‘halt the extinction of rare and endangered animals’.
This season’s colourful campaign image, created by Ratti S.p.A. Como, is ‘inspired by the vibrancy, exotic jungles and ecology of India, as well as founder Karen Radley’s love of elephants’. Featuring a highly decorated Asiatic Elephant, a Royal Bengal tiger, and other animals, the artwork will feature across the show on posters, show bags, catalogues and Scoop scarves.
Scoop and art coexist at the Saatchi Gallery so for Autumn/Winter 2020 Karen Radley has invited Ibizan artist Oliver Merlin to install an exhibition of his latest work. His mini-retrospective at Scoop ‘examines the real and surreal sides to movement and momentum’. Merlin is also donating one of his paintings to be auctioned off at the show with proceeds going to The Aspinall Foundation.
Fashion designers and labels from Britain and the rest of the world select Scoop as a launch pad for their designs. The show welcomes premium department stores from across the globe including Harvey Nichols, Brown Thomas, John Lewis, Voisins, Galeries Lafayette, Beymen and Le Bon Marche as well as independent boutiques such as Aria Boutique, Found, Iris Fashion, Jules B, and Sue Parkinson.
Karen Radley, founder and managing director of Scoop said: “This season’s residence at Old Billingsgate is exciting and inspiring. Not only will we create a dazzling backdrop for the season’s new designer collections with the flamboyant and colourful elephant design, we have the opportunity to introduce visitors to one of my favourite contemporary artists, Oliver Merlin – all while supporting The Aspinall Foundation and their fabulous conservation work. We are also delighted to welcome Tansy Aspinall, who will showcase the latest collection of jewellery from her own label with childhood friend Victoria Van Holthe, Tada & Toy.”
Jane Michotte, director of fundraising at The Aspinall Foundation added: “We are absolutely delighted that Karen Radley and Scoop are supporting The Aspinall Foundation at the next show and welcome the opportunity to raise awareness of our commitment to conservation.”
Scoop will take place at 9-11 February 2020, at Old Billingsgate, London.
