The famous London street to be given a Stones makeover for Christmas
The Carnaby Street Christmas decorations this year will consist of huge 3D spheres containing gold and silver vinyl records emblazoned with the band's iconic artwork and album covers. The Carnaby arches will also be dressed with The Stones' iconic tongue logo.
The installations will launch on 8th November 2012 and will be in place until 6th January 2013. In addition there will be a Rolling Stones pop up shop on the street. This will be a curated space that will sell limited edition merchandise and prints plus the band's new Greatest Hits collection GRRR!, which is released on 12 November. A limited edition canvas shopping bag will also be available for Carnaby shoppers.
"We are delighted to be working with the most famous band in the world. They have been instrumental in defining popular culture and epitomise the essence of Carnaby’s music heritage" said Simon Quayle who is the Director of Shaftesbury.
