Target is launching a unique partnership with fashion icon Liberty of London, which combines the retail giant's budget-conscious ethos with Liberty's legendary styles. The announcement called for a memorable advertising campaign, and who better to deliver than A Very Small Office (AVSO) Director Mikon van Gastel, who collaborated closely with Peterson Milla Hooks (PMH) to buck industry trends and create a unique oversized practical environment that beautifully showcases Liberty's trendy clothing, home and table ware, garden products, bicycles and more.
The edgy Liberty spot follows AVSO's recent series of high-profile Target Frugalista spots - done in the iconic style of the retail chain - that aired during the Grammys, the Golden Globes, and the Winter Olympics. The spots are vastly different in tone and presentation from the Liberty spot, serving as both a verification of Mikon's incredible versatility and AVSO's ability to attract and maintain the world's most visible clients.
"It's a testament to PMH that they recognized Mikon's flexibility and gave him liberty (no pun intended) to create at will. What they got was something unique; a fashion editorial come to life; a slightly surreal and ethereal spot that goes far beyond traditional retail expectations," noted AVSO EP Saffron Case.
