Considering so many fashion houses make the majority of their revenue in the fourth quarter via gifting, it is surprising that the adverting field is thins out with few fashion players entering the game to maximize the opportunity. That being said, there were some dynamic Holiday 2019 fashion ads this season including notable ones from Gucci, Gap, JW Anderson, and Hermès.
Gucci’s Alessandro Michele and Creative Director Christopher Simmonds once again reteamed with director Harmony Korine to build a narrative for the season centered around a Christmas Cruise complete with Santa and a diverse range of characters. JW Anderson brought back his QVC inspired character, Sandie Stone, played by Justin Vivian Bond to share how to do up the holidays while Hermès continued to delight with their imaginative animated worlds. Notable for the season was a change of direction for Gap whose new CMO Alegra O’Hare teamed with Johannes Leonardo for fashion’s most emoting campaign of the season and well played one of the holidays shifting from traditional TV spots to airing on streaming platforms such as Hulu, and other digital networks such as Vevo and Facebook Watch.
By pulling these Top 10 Holiday Fashion Ad Campaigns of 2019 together, The Impression hopes to inspire others to enter the field for next season and not let the Grinch of budgets get the better of fashion.
