Addicted To Retail (ATR) Special Feature: ‘A Beautiful Blizzard’ Window Installation by CRACK for Sephora


Addicted To Retail (ATR) presents: Sephora ‘A Beautiful Blizzard’ Window Installation by Crack Experience.

Sephora reached out to Crack Experience seeking help bringing to life their “A Beautiful Blizzard” Campaign for Holiday 2012. Sephora believes that like a snowflake, no face is the same, and all are equally beautiful. Inspired by the iridescent sheen and geometric shapes of scientific snowflakes, Crack developed the intricate snowflake designs consisting of several patterns and layers. These snowflakes were then turned in to floating, layered, sculptural installations in the windows of each store.

The iridescent material used to create the snowflakes is constantly changing and responding to the light conditions of the store and exterior environments, therefore no individual experience of these windows is the same.

Crack designed and installed pinnacle window displays for 5 flagship Sephora stores in NYC and SF, as well as did the design of all “Beautiful Blizzard” Art seen in all Sephora stores nationwide, in packaging and online.
