ART-SPIRATIONS

28 Mar 2012

  • At the beginning of each season, JOYCE latest project sees the retailer collaborate with five up and coming artists and illustrators from across the globe, including Devin McGrath, Carne Griffiths, Simon Prades, Violeta Hernández and Vasilj Godzh.

    Each artist has created an exclusive artwork for JOYCE, which has been used as decoration on a series of metal eggs. Customers who spend HK$10,000 net or more on any items in shops, can draw one of these eggs from a specially designed vending machine. Inside each egg customers can uncover one of many exciting prizes and offers including gift vouchers, special bonus offers, cash vouchers and the top prize of a JOYCE gift certificate worth HK$10,000. This unique shopping experience is available at JOYCE and monobrand stores from 17th March to 9th April 2012.
