Marks & Spencer launches fall food and fashion ad campaign – Retail Times
Marks & Spencer is unifying its food and fashion campaigns under its “Only M&S” format this fall. According to the retailer, the move is designed to provide customers with a clearer and more consistent message about the M&S brand.
Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, Executive Director of Marketing and International at M&S, said: “The M&S brand is unique in terms of reach, depth and history of the trust it has built over the past 130 years. years. ‘Only M&S’ provides the ideal platform from which to share the many stories that make our products different. These are stories that only M&S can tell, through our first market innovations, our exceptional sourcing standards or our interpretations of seasonal trends.
The “Only M&S” format also offers greater consistency in the look and feel of the two cross-platform campaigns – spanning television, print, digital engagement and social media, according to M&S. This consistency of experience extends to the entire customer journey – with activity in the window and in store – reflecting the products and stories presented in the campaigns.
Bousquet-Chavanne said: “The use of the simple and elegant format in both campaigns makes it possible to stand out on the page and show the strength of our product offering. We want to demonstrate our expertise in both food and fashion – engaging customers in a digitally savvy way that feels relevant in their daily lives.
At the center of each campaign is a striking TV commercial and for the first time, the retailer will be running food and fashion campaigns simultaneously throughout the fall – with activity from September 2 to October 29.
