The Paradise Shirt / Corona Oceans Week


THE PARADISE? SHIRT
Corona Oceans Week


Hello Everyone!

I am very happy to share this beautiful project for Corona, comissioned by 
Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam.


In honour of World Oceans Day, we hijacked Corona’s global ‘This Is Living’ brand platform to help combat plastic pollution.
With a staggering eight million metric tons of plastic waste dumped into the sea each year, I worked with Wieden + Kennedy Amsterdam, Corona and Parley for the Oceans to highlight the issue by putting plastic into other places it doesn’t belong.
 
Just in time for summer, we subverted that classic symbol of paradise, the Hawaiian shirt. Called The Paradise? Shirt, it’s designed by Adolfo Correa to mimic the true state of paradise with a pattern that looks idyllic from a distance, but on closer inspection reveals plastic waste everywhere such as old toothbrushes, plastic rings, cuttery and so on.
Supported by global ambassador, Chris Hemsworth, and made with the help of Parley from the very stuff it depicts – plastic from the ocean; the limited-edition shirt shows the world paradise is in danger while doing something about it.

The campaign had a great success online and we sold out all the shirts in a couple days 
to support more oceans cleanups, receiving a giant positive feedback from all over the world with the hashtags #OceansWeek #100islandsprotected
