6 of the strangest pop-up stores.
This pop-up store aimed to make the brand image a little more sophisticated and refined. The neat interior offered a place for people to test taste variations and relaxedly mingle.
2. H & M
To promote their new line of beach wear, clothing company H & M opened a pop-up store on the beach. This simple idea was a great, effective way of introducing a new line, and probably generated a huge amount of free publicity and word-of-mouth.
Aesop specialises in hand & facial creams. This elegant pop-up was made in collaboration with local artists, and featured a sand-sculpture that evolved over the duration of the pop-up.
4. Where The Wild Things Are.
To promote the release of the Where The Wild Things Are film adaptation, boutique items were created by artists inspired by the themes of the film. It was a great attempt to bridge the adult and child demographics that the film targeted.
5. Tron: Legacy.
Another film promotion with a completely different feel. Disney promoted their reboot of Tron with a futuristic pop-up store selling edgy, stylish clothes.
This playful but classic idea perfectly captured the spirit of the Adidas brand: a pop up store made to look like a shoe box.

Gold medallist equestrian quits Olympics to save her horse
Gold medal-winning dressage rider Adelinde Cornelissen dropped out of the 2016 Rio Olympics this year.
Four years of relentless training and passion lead of the the event, one that earns medal winners prestige and recognition.
But when it comes down to it, there’s something more important to that.
On the day of her first major test, Cornelissen noticed that her horse Parzival’s face had swollen he had been kicking the walls in agitation. Cornelissen took his temperature – over 40 degrees Celcius.
Parzival had been bitten by some kind of spider or bug – the toxins were causing him severe irritation. Cornelissen slept in the stables, checking on her horse every hour.
She asked for her event to be rescheduled, but was declined.
Although he recovered a little following day, and the vets gave the all-clear, Cornelissen pulled-out midway through her test.
“When I entered I already felt he was giving his utmost and being the fighter he is, he never gives up. But in order to protect him, I gave up. My buddy, my friend, the horse that has given everything for me his whole life does not deserve this.”
She saluted and left the arena.
