Holt Renfrew Shoe Trees

Holt Renfrew Shoe Trees from the Side

Client Holt Renfrew approached Great Lakes Scenic Studios about developing a new front window display for their flagship men’s retail store at 50 Bloor Street in Toronto. Starting from some reference imagery, the idea was to use cedar shoe trees, 250 of them to be exact, to create a suspended sculpture. Great Lakes developed the idea from the imagery into a large static window display. Planning out and then executing the build required an artistic aesthetic. Each shoe tree was clear coated in one of three different tones to lend visual texture. Each shoe tree was rigged to create a fresh and organic finished work.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
