Life made fabulous with the new Debenhams TV ad
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 31 AUG 2011 07:42 DESIGNERS AT DEBENHAMSCOMMENTS
From today you’ll be able to see the brand new Debenhams advertising campaign for Autumn/Winter 2011 – hurrah! Our TV adverts star designers Julien Macdonald, Ben de Lisi, John Rocha and for the first time, Henry Holland and encapsulate Life Made Fabulous with our Designers at Debenhams collections.
We wanted to make sure our customers know about our unique relationship with some of the biggest names in fashion and these ads are a great way to show off our fabulous designer collections. There are some designer faces who’ve been working with us for over 10 years and a new face too with Henry Holland making an appearance.
Each advert opens with a designer in their studio, adding the finishing touches to a garment then the scene transforms to the same item being worn and enjoyed in real life. Whether you love the ’70s glam look of Star by Julien Macdonald, the retro casual cool of H! by Henry Holland, the ’60s pop trend from Principles by Ben de Lisi or the easy luxe appeal of the Rocha.John Rocha collection, there’s a style to suit every woman.
You’ll probably recognise the voiceover of the TV advert as the gorgeous Billie Piper of Belle du Jour fame and we can’t stop singing the backing track either. It’s ‘This is the life’ by Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club. Ever wondered how they got their name? It came about after member Sam Halliday mispronounced the name of the local cinema, Tudor Cinema, and it just stuck. If you love the track too you can download it at Amazon and iTunes.
The first airing of the adverts will be tonight (Wednesday 31 August) during Emmerdale. Watch out for it in the ad breaks of this weekend’s X Factor show too.
Plus, take a look at our TV advert pages online where you can find out how to work the trends featured and shop the items from the advert. Keep your eye on the blog too as we’ll be giving away some great prizes very soon…
