“I am also excited at the opportunity to further raise awareness of the Reiss brand by launching an Autumn/Winter ’19 campaign across a series of marketing initiatives, some of which are a first for the brand, starting in the heart of London with Piccadilly Lights.”
The advertising deal with out-of-home media company Ocean Outdoor on behalf of Landsec, sees the AW19 campaign set to launch on Piccadilly Lights across a four-week period starting from 26 August.
James Spreckley, creative director, added: “AW19 evokes a cinematic, euphoric view of London’s creativity, art and culture. A celebration of the city’s unexpected backdrops, we wanted the campaign to showcase portraits of people in their truest, most confident forms. We call it, ‘beauty untamed’.”
