New York’s coolest place to hangout this summer is unquestionably Rockaway Beach’s Playland Motel, us Topshop girls had become so obsessed with this ace beach outpost that we just had to spend even more time there! Since July 6th we’ve been hosting our Summer Sundays at Playland – we’ve taken over the space with fun selfie booths, competitions, fashion decorations galore and some rad DJs from labels like Kitsune and band’s such as Gang Gang Dance. To celebrate our summer of fun in Rockaway who better than street artist Kenny Scharf – who had previously worked alongside Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring – to share the Rockaway love by painting an epic mural right across from the motel inspired by the beautiful locale. Swoon!
Watch the video to see Kenny’s live work in process and don’t forget to tell us about your time at Playland Motel using the hashtag #topshopxplayland.
