Sky gets Fashionable?

Fashion, is it? Well Sky have certainly stared creativity in the face and made sure it blinked first. Check out these new wrapped sky boxes by renowned designers, including Roland Mouret and Giles Deacon.

Illustrious fashion designers Roland Mouret and Giles Deacon, style icon Sophie Dahl and men’s fashion rising star Kit Neale have partnered with Sky to create a limited edition collection for the new Sky+HD 2TB box with built-in Wi-Fi.

The collection brings to life the nation’s love of TV with each box inspired by the designer’s favourite genre. The limited edition designs feature on the latest and best ever set top box from Sky with built-in Wi-Fi, for simpler access to Catch Up TV and great TV box sets, via On Demand from Sky. The exclusive collection will go on sale from today, just in time for Christmas.

Roland and Sophie’s designs both reflect the passion they love in their favourite shows - with Sophie’s design inspired by her love of romance, and Roland taking gritty contemporary drama as his muse. Kit has captured his love for the great outdoors taking creative inspiration from nature documentaries, whilst Giles focuses on animation with a fun and contemporary design inspired by Disney’s style icon Minnie Mouse.

Roland Mouret “I love the idea of magic. I love how a woman can put on a dress and transform herself into something completely new. For me, the Sky box has the same magical quality, the ability to take us out of our world and transport us to somewhere dangerous and exciting. When I look at the contemporary dramas that people love today like Dracula or Hannibal on Sky Living, I see passion cutting through the elegance and the glamour of those worlds. My design features colourful splashes of passion cutting through a calm sea of orchids. Some people will look and see love, some people will look and see blood. It’s up to you.”

Giles Deacon “Minnie Mouse and I are old pals now. I designed a dress inspired by Minnie Mouse for Fashion Week last year and it’s great to work with such a style icon once again. Minnie encompasses all things fun. She’s stylish, independent, spirited and everyone adores her. I absolutely love Disney animations so when I decided to design my Sky box in celebration of the Disney classics on Sky Movies Disney, I was inspired to focus my creation on Minnie.”

The new Sky+HD 2TB box now has built-in Wi-Fi, providing customers with easy connection to Sky’s internet-delivered On Demand content, extensive film library and the UK’s biggest Catch Up TV service with the widest choice of channels. Along with Sky Channels, BBC iPlayer, 4oD, ITV on demand and Demand 5, Sky HD customers can also choose from a wide array of TV Box Sets, and Sky Movies pack customers can access hundreds of movies for no extra monthly cost.
