Marks & Spencer Art of Adventures in Autumn

Marks & Spencer is promoting the store’s Autumn/Winter 2015 range of clothing with a series of television commercials celebrating the art of design, tailoring, comfort (lingerie), autumn, texture (coats). Set to the Mark Ronson hit Uptown Funk, the series transfers artistic elements from the Adventures in Food campaign, close up product shots and sequences from the manufacturing process. The goal here is to capture the craftsmanship and fashion credentials behind the brand’s womenswear, menswear and childrenswear. “The art of style, inspiration, innovation, integrity, cut, art, craft. Only one store does it like this.”
