Target hosted an event at New York Fashion Week last night to celebrate the forthcoming launch (September 15) of its 3.1 Phillip Lim line.

Hosted at the new Spring Studios, the party centred around an enormous digital installation – the Stylescape, which is the longest-ever created cinemagraph in fact, comprised of multiple interactive components.

You could blow on a pin-wheel to make a gust of wind breeze across various components on the screen, pull on a cord to see fireworks light up the sky or a string of fairy lights illuminate, and even jump on a spot to get Phillip Lim to turn round from a park bench and smile for your picture. Other sections saw the crowd dancing with one of the virtual models, or giggling as a dog appeared behind a counter.

The initiative took over four months to produce, Refinery29 reported. It was created across six cities, representing a full day-to-night span from one end to the other. It kickstarts with early morning in LA, crossing through Dallas, Toronto, Chicago, and Miami, and wrapping up with a 5am cab in NYC.

3.1 Philip Lim turns to “Trickers” for SS13 menswear video

3.1 Phillip Lim has proved an early addition to the onslaught of spring/summer 2013 campaign videos, with a beautiful spot for its menswear line that demonstrates martial arts tricking.

Shot by photographer Jacob Sutton, the film features real-life trickers Jason Mello and Micah Karns in action. As described by the Huffington Post, tricking is “a real-time, pan-athletic forum between floor gymnastics and martial arts skill, and extreme sports showmanship”.

It continues: “It’s like parkour without the cityscape, or half-pipe skateboarding without the board (or the pipe, for that matter). In tricking, the emphasis is on motion and creativity — and the more emphatically they’re delivered, the better.”

What better way to show off a new collection?
