What’s more iconic than Victoria’s Secret bras and the legendary women who model them? The company’s new campaign, ICON, for its new Push-Up Demi Bra, featured hand painted murals in SoHo, NYC, and LA in Melrose/Fairfax.
The campaign featured some of the greatest talents in modeling, past, present, and future, including legendary beautys Hailey Bieber, Gisele Bündchen, Naomi Campbell, and Adriana Lima, photographed by Mikael Jansson.
Overall Murals’ SoHo double wallscape features Naomi Cambell on the west side of the street and Gisele Bündchen across Lafayette, each looking out toward Canal St.: this is the racing heart of Manhattan’s best neighborhood for innumerable luxury designer stores and home to Michelin star restaurants – including Hirohisa and Le Coucou – and the NOMO SOHO hotel. Ms. Cambell and Ms. Bündchen, both in crisp, photorealistic black and white – painted in the style of Chuck Close portraits of John Cage and Kate Moss – seem to stand upon the sky, each her own constellation, as glorious and impressive as the city itself.
In LA, at Melrose/Fairfax, our female-led paint crew painted the same photorealistic images as a two-story streetscape in the middle of the County’s chicest shopping runway, just down from Banned LA, Melrose Trading Post, and Urban Outfitters. The quadriptych of Ms. Bündchen, Paloma Elsesser, Ms. Campbell, and Candace Swanpoel rises from the sidewalk to the full height of the building: each of these timeless women is painted as defiant as boxers; each portrait captures the subject’s confidence and strength and throws a knockout visual punch.
The Overall Murals content creation team captured the whole process and interviewed our female paint crew who painted the murals. VS received a VS Instagram Reel and a primo video package of “next level” content available on Instagram to unveil behind the scenes of making this Victoria Secret's campaign.
The story? How Overall Murals is matching its own iconic team of fearless females to match the client's vision of creating exquisite, perfectly executed murals that prove hand painted, pictorial, out-of-home advertising has more impact than just photographs pasted to billboards. And it’s far, far sexier.
