Lacking in inky inspiration? Feeling a little fearful of going under the needle? This one’s pretty cool, and fronted by none other than Jourdan Dunn. HTC have just recently unveiled their latest campaign, HTC INK. Working in collaboration with worldwide fashion icon and supermodel Jourdan Dunn, and tapping into the fashion world’s passion for body art, HTC INK will see bespoke celebrity body art designs engraved onto a limited run of HTC’s premium HTC One M9 handsets.
So, if you’re put off the idea of permanently inking your own body, why not experiment with your phone? Here, creative artistry, fashion and high tech converge for one unmissable collaboration. A ground-breaking star of international high fashion runways, advertising campaigns and magazines, with an approachable street style and a personal love of body art, Jourdan is the ideal choice to launch this style-led Limited Edition campaign, which capitalises on the global trend for ‘ink’, in both permanent and temporary forms.
With the look and feel of the HTC One M9 inspired by the artistry of high-end fine jewellers, coming in a number of brushed-metal, two tone finishes, Jourdan’s HTC INK design will replicate this in the form of temporary metallic body art1. Created by Cally-Jo Pothecary, who was responsible for Rihanna’s henna-style hand inking, it will be engraved onto the back of a series of Limited Edition HTC One M9 handsets. On her appointment as HTC INK’s first global ambassador, Jourdan said: “My experience in the world of fashion means that I have a passion for creativity and expressing personal style.
Body art is a visual language and so Jourdan worked with celebrity ‘ink-er’ Cally Jo Pothecary to come up with an image that encapsulated her feelings about a new direction in her life, her excitement over upcoming creative projects, and being able to express her individual style through her partnership with HTC. The open hand and eye symbolise the need for protection and strength, whilst still being open and approachable in personality and style. The natural leaf-elements and patterns around the outside of each visual reflect the growth in creativity that she is feeling at this time, whilst the sun and moon together indicate balance and harmony in her character.
