Banana Republic heralds the dog days in their Summer ’18 campaign. Shot at Hotel Aire de Bardenas in Navarra, Spain, the ad follows a group of travelers on an idyllic sojourn through a stunning desert landscape. The series of action shots showcases the Summer ’18 collection in motion, achieving a feeling of summer adventure and celebration.
The campaign touches on a narrative quality that Banana Republic achieved in past campaigns. One in which this journey represents a move in the right direction. However, we still long for a Banana Republic campaign that emotionally connects and stands out like the campaigns it did a decade ago. Theses campaigns were created with more in mind that simply filling the windows with graphics and a few out-of-home billboards. They had a distinctive air that held its own as an ad; emoting, luxurious, warm, and captivating. We root for the day when the house realizes that the journey and destination are not the same and to this we hope Banana Republic ‘takes us there.’
