New Matalan ad orbits perfect spring day

This is a lovely video from UK discount retailer Matalan for spring/summer 2011.

Part of the store’s new ‘Feel Good Fashion’ brand campaign, it sees a series of models interacting with each other as well as their future selves as the camera continuously rotates on the same picnic scene.

With the title Forever Spring, the aim of the 60-second TV spot was to encapsulate the perfect everlasting spring day.

It was created by BBH and directed by Scott Lyon. Richard McGrann of BBH said: “We set out to make a fashion film that not only stands out, but gives the audience something new to spot each time they view it.”

The campaign is also running in print, while a second TV ad is due in the summer.
