Working in collaboration with TOM FORD Beauty, Endless Summer is the first beauty-led content campaign for Harrods.com. Creating a rich storytelling opportunity to kick-start a summer of style, Harrods.com and TOM FORD Beauty teamed up with six global influencers (as listed above), to share a their ultimate vacation fashion and beauty. Shot on location in Positano, Italy, each influencer curated their own looks from the Harrods fashion edit, while TOM FORD Beauty introduced their newest fragrance Sole di Positano, along with their key bestsellers to the influencers. Amplifying both the teaser and launch phases of the project, influencers used #HarrodsSummer and #TFTravels for their social posts, garnering an extensive combined global reach, along with support from both Harrods and TOM FORD social channels also.
Fusing content with commerce, the feature page sits within the newly-launched editorial channel Style Notes, allowing for a bespoke template, with the content leading the layout. Quickshop elements were woven into the feature allowing the customer to shop the shoot without leaving the page.

ANATOMY OF STYLE
"A hard-working wardrobe starts off with solid sartorial foundations. Exploring the fundamentals of men’s fashion, Harrods presents Anatomy Of Style, teaming up with four key voices in menswear today; Nick Wooster, Matthew Zorpas, Olof Nithenius and Fredrik Risvik, who come together in a dapper discussion hosted by Esquire Style Director Teo van den Broeke, sharing insights, edits and their individual style DNA."
Marking a major moment for Harrods, the 360 campaign brought together the key voices in menswear to really dissect and debunk the building blocks of every man’s wardrobe. From the round-table conversation (see film) to each influencer's day-to-night edits and grooming tips, the campaign launched on the former Harrods.com platform (see gallery), while for the launch of the new Harrods.com, content gathered from the project was realigned into individual features for the new editorial channel Style Notes, demonstrating the evergreen nature of this content campaign.
Launch Date: February 2017
"Seven of the world’s top tastemakers, Adam Gallagher of I Am Galla, Patricia Otegwu of Patricia Bright, Zanita Whittington of Zanita.com, Melissa Koh of MelissaCKoh.com, Vanessa Hong of The Haute Pursuit, Meric Kucuk of Maritsa.co and fashion director Anya Ziourova, come together in the ultimate global gathering hosted in Istanbul..."
To celebrate the global Harrods customer, Destination Party was a content-led campaign focused around party season style across the world. Inviting influencers from key territories, the content team coordinated a three-day trip to Istanbul at the Four Seasons, hosting the seven influencers at dinners, photoshoots and the party in the newly opened Soho House Istanbul. Each influencer selected several looks for their shoots from the Harrods fashion edit, which were fully shoppable as the campaign launched. The influencers were invited to bring their own photographers also, allowing them to create their own content around the campaign and experience, while posting throughout on the #DestinationParty hashtag. The campaign was shortlisted for a Drapers' Award.

INSIDE THE STUDIO
"Four of Britain’s most talented fashion designers, Matthew Williamson, Rupert Sanderson, Antonio Berardi and Alice Temperley invite you inside their bustling ateliers to discover the exquisite craftsmanship behind their coveted collections..."
In a celebration of British fashion and the designers behind it, Harrods collaborated with the four designers offering unparalleled access and revealing a rare glimpse of a day in the life inside their studios, charting a collection from concept to catwalk.
To showcase the storytelling to a wider audience, Harrods paired each designer with a media partner and key British blogger to exclusively cover behind-the-scenes and gather their own content in support of the initiative. Matthew Williamson teamed with Harpers Bazaar UK and DisneyRollerGirl, Rupert Sanderson with Grazia UK and Girl A La Mode, Antonio Berardi with 10 Magazine and Park & Cube, and Temperley London with Marie Claire UK and Coco's Tea Party. Elevating the project further, Harrods also partnered with the British Fashion Council.
To capture each design house’s individual aesthetic, Harrods asked the designers to invite videographers of their choice to create their film and to select their ‘muse’ who best encapsulated their brand DNA.
The films were launched in succession (on the former Harrods.com) alongside each designer’s unique page, which featured interview content with the designer and muse, an interactive map of the studio, shoppable fashion edits curated by each blogger, along with a competition to win a piece selected by the designer from their latest collection.
The campaign won the Drapers Award For Best Use Of Content.
