Clothing brand Benetton’s campaign to focus on real emotions

New Delhi, Aug 2 – With an aim to break away from fashion stereotypes and focus on real moments and emotions, clothing brand United Colors of Benetton (UCB) has come out with a new campaign — Clothes for Humans.

Clothes for Humans will be the force behind three product lines, a global campaign, a new website and a series of in-store initiatives and materials, including the magalog, a hybrid between a magazine and a catalogue that will be distributed in Benetton stores worldwide, read a statement.

With the campaign, the brand wants to put across a message that fashion is for all irrespective of colour or size.

Reflected by the three new product lines, the Clothes for Humans philosophy comes to life this summer as a creative platform characterised by a core idea — that Benetton explores the most honest and ‘human’ moments of emotion that are relevant to clothing — conveyed through a fresh, quirky tone of voice.

The three lines are — Dress Up: the smart elegance for work and special occasions; Dress Down: the relaxed style for every moment of the day; Dress to Move: functional garments for a sporty lifestyle.

The three product lines revolve around knitwear.

The advertising campaign shows diverse and expressive real people — a woman eating take-away food in front of an empty open fridge, a group of girls drinking wine at an informal party and two young siblings cutting each other’s hair.

The Italian clothing brand has also come out with a new website, in which a simple but contemporary design will take on the task of letting current and new customers into the Benetton world.

A section called Identity will introduce the user to the three elements — knitwear, colour and social commitment — while another section called Clothes for Humans will present the new design philosophy and help the customers match their mood with the three lines of clothing: Dress Up, Dress Down and Dress to Move.
