Billboard of the week: Shoppers Stop’s XL display

Brands have the power to create larger-than-life effects using outdoor media. Shoppers Stop’s outdoor campaign to promote its ‘Suits & Jackets’ fest across all it stores has been catching eyeballs.

This week Upendra Thakur, Co-Founder, Origin Beanstalk, picks Shoppers Stop’s largest men’s formal jacket display as the most impressive outdoor initiative of the week. This larger-than-life men’s formal jacket stands at an imposing 22 feet tall and is made from actual poly cotton suiting fabric. Over 150 meters of fabric have been used for the construction of the jacket. With this installation, Shoppers Stop is set to make an entry into the Limca Book of Records.
