7 For All Mankind Debuts Groundbreaking Spring 2012 Marketing Campaign Directed and Photographed by Award-Winning Actor, James Franco

leave a comment »

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — 7 For All Mankind, the world’s premier brand of denim-lifestyle products, unveils a groundbreaking new Spring 2012 marketing campaign. Born from an art film imagined and created by James Franco in collaboration with the brand’s creative agency, LIPMAN, the unorthodox campaign is an innovative multimedia experience that embodies the brand’s California roots and ‘forever cool’ aesthetic. The campaign debuts with a short teaser video, which was shot from behind the point of view of James Franco. The campaign will feature a number of cutting-edge print and digital assets and will culminate with a full-length feature film to be released in May.

(PHOTO: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120209/LA48617)

The new campaign brings the brand to life through the eyes of Franco, resulting in a stimulating visual journey. “This marks an important evolution for 7 For All Mankind. The campaign is the perfect platform for us to tell our brand story of a modern, elevated California lifestyle,” said Barry Miguel, President of 7 For All Mankind. “It takes the brand to a new level and communicates both our image and product in a new and compelling way.”

Shadowing a cast of actors, artists, models and musicians that embody the Los Angeles way of life, including Lily Donaldson, Henry Hopper and Amber Anderson, the campaign depicts the story of a hedonistic house party that takes place over a warm December weekend in Malibu. Evoking the causal California lifestyle interspersed with fashion and sexuality, the resulting imagery and film communicates the brands’ values with a realism that is entirely unique.

While Franco is known for his exceptional work in the arts, this was his first time shooting an advertising campaign. “Working with 7 For All Mankind was an amazing experience. I was able to work in ways that were similar to what I do in the film world but in this case we had a tremendous amount of freedom. We were liberated from the conventional film apparatus and were able to create something both classic and new,” said James Franco. “The campaign was born out of a desire to do something that has never been done before,” said David Lipman, Founder and CCO of LIPMAN. “With James helming the camera, you connect so strongly to the narrative and yearn to be a part of it.”

The campaign launch includes a dedicated 7 For All Mankind YouTube channel debuting on February 15th (youtube.com/7forallmankindjeans( http://www.youtube.com/7forallmankindjeans )). The print and digital assets will live on the YouTube channel including curated episodes, which delve into the key cast members’ journey throughout the shoot. The episodes, all edited and directed by Franco, showcase the unique interpretation and expression of the brand. The channel will have a global phasing in of local market translations.

Barneys New York Debuts the Spring 2012 Womens Designer Campaign ‘Tree Time’

leave a comment »

NEW YORK, Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Barneys New York, the luxury specialty retailer, announced today the debut of its Spring 2012 Women’s designer campaign: ‘Tree Time.’ The campaign features Penelope Tree and seven other women, each unique in their talent and beauty. Shot by Mario Sorrenti, Barneys New York selected Penelope Tree to be the face of this season’s campaign not only because Tree is a beautiful, free-spirited fashion icon, but also because she is an intelligent, sophisticated woman who inspires greatness in others.

First discovered in 1966 by photographer Richard Avedon, Penelope Tree changed the way the fashion world perceived beauty. With her free spirit and unique look, Tree represented all that was the swinging sixties. Although the iconic portraits of Tree taken by Avedon and published in Vogue made her famous as a model, fashion is only one small part of Penelope Tree’s multifaceted persona.

Since the 1980s, Tree has been a student of Buddhism and has traveled the world, often for work she does with Lotus Outreach, a non-profit organization that supports the education of vulnerable women and children in Cambodia and India. She has also done extensive work with the Khyentse Foundation, which promotes Buddhist scholarship around the world.

Additionally, under the creative direction of Dennis Freedman, Barneys New York selected eight stylish women to compliment Tree and complete the campaign. Similar to Tree, these women are each unique in their own right. Actress, model, journalist, ballerina — these women bring their own brand of individuality and beauty to the Barneys campaign.

“I had the pleasure of meeting Penelope for the first time last September and was instantly captivated by her,” says Barneys CEO Mark Lee. “I thought it would be amazing to have her shot for Barneys’ campaign and she very graciously agreed. With the addition of all the other women featured, ‘Tree Time’ makes a strong statement for the diversity and individualism of modern fashion.”

‘Tree Time’ features the following:

Jane Aldrige
Jane Aldrige, a self-confessed shoe fanatic, began her blog, Sea of Shoes, five years ago at the age of 15 and now counts Kanye West – among almost a million other fashion lovers – as fans. With the help of her mother and fellow blogger, Judy, Aldrige not only covers her favorite shoes but also creates photo vignettes of herself in highly-stylized looks that mix vintage and modern designers.

Sybil Buck
Sybil Buck’s career trajectory has been varied and unusual. Her renegade looks made her a runway darling of Gaultier and Saint Laurent in the 90s. She then went on to become a bassist and singer for alternative rock bands. Now living in Topanga Canyon outside of Los Angeles with her husband/fellow musician and daughter, Buck has become a yoga teacher.

Sofia Sanchez
Argentinian by birth, Sanchez came to New York three years ago and worked for Mario Sorrenti before going into art direction for fashion and beauty.

Julia Sarr-Jamois
Fashion editor of the British indie magazine Wonderland, the half-Senegalese half-French London native Julia Sarr-Jamois has become a magnet for street style photographers due to her daring sense of style.

Jessica Saund
A member of the corps de ballet at the American Ballet Theatre and a former member of the English National Ballet, Jessica Saund has been passionate about dance and music for as long as she can remember. Her favorite ballets are romantic to the core.

Sarah Ruba
Model and musician Sarah Ruba is a performer at heart. A native of a small town in Ontario Canada, Ruba moved to New York City and started modeling before beginning the electronic pop band ‘New Look” with husband Adam Pavao.

Marine Vacth
This Parisian model and actress fell into her career by chance. At age 14, she was discovered by a modeling agent while standing in a shop to escape the rain, and the same is true of her acting career. She has appeared in the French film “My Piece of the Pie,” and recently finished shooting her second film.

‘Tree Time’ will be prominently featured in the windows of Barneys’ Madison Avenue flagship store, and across multiple communications touch points including The Barneys’ Spring 2012 mailer (in home on February 16th), the season’s advertising campaign, Barneys editorial site “The Window,” and on Barneys.com.
