From London to New York, Vancouver to Honolulu, artists such as Andy Dixon, Maya Lea Portner and Tom Butler are being connected to new audiences with Kit and Ace’s artist-in-residence scheme. All proceeds from artworks sold in-store go directly to the artists, with the retailer taking no commission.

According to the company website, The Wall is a way for Kit and Ace to give back to local creators – ‘a group of knowledge-based innovators who are the problem-solvers, problem-seekers, initiators and starters of the world’.

The Big Picture: Brands such as Everlane are adopting a radically transparent approach to retail, bringing artists, business owners, industry experts and the local community together.
