C&A built the fast fashion segment in Brazil. But to launch their new 2012 Gisele Bundchen
collection, their objective was to create an aura of high fashion exclusivity without limiting the
collection's production scale. The campaign's strategy was to engage the target with the
launch, transforming existing customers into ambassadors of the collection and empowering
them to spread the word through social media to potential new customers.
We created the Look Block collection. We developed an application that blocked the looks
consumers bought, making them unavailable to all their Facebook friends. To access the
collection's online store, consumers had to connect with their Facebook accounts. Once they
bought a look, their friends couldn't get it anymore. For every piece of clothing they bought, a
post was published on the wall of their Facebook friends, in which they bragged about being
the first (and only) to buy that look. In this way, they became ambassadors of the collection,
spreading the word of its launch through social media.
The Online Advert titled Look Block was done by DDB Sao Paulo advertising agency for brand: C&a in Brazil. It was released in the May 2012.
