What you missed: Fashion-tech education, Burberry’s see-now buy-now plans, Dior bags on WeChat

Burberry see-now buy-now fashion
Burberry’s first see-now buy-now campaign

One of the most interesting things about taking a decent summer break, and particularly one in August, is observing what happens during that time. Traditionally still the month that most of Europe closes down, it is also the time just before fashion weeks begin again and therefore the perfect opportunity for quiet on the news front full stop. We’ve certainly noticed that with regards to digital campaigns or tech stories over the past six years that Fashion & Mash has been running. And yet, not so much this year…

August 2016 proved busier than ever in terms of news in this space, ranging from Burberry’s new see-now buy-now campaign to Kate Spade’s wearables launch, Dior’s WeChat moves and various new high-tech store openings. What that does of course is continue to prove the relevancy of this world to the industry’s growth and success.

Read on for a full breakdown of what you might have missed…

PS. We’ve rebranded our regular “Digital Snippets” series to this “What you missed” feature in a bid to bring you a broader range of relevant stories, as well as a breakdown by category to make your consumption that much easier.

J.Crew proves it’s ‘all ears’ with cute Claymation elephant video series

jcrew_elephant2

J.Crew has won over our hearts with this cute video series for the holiday season featuring “The (Helpful) Elephant in the Room”.

Four claymation clips (so far) feature a small elephant playing the role of customer service advocate. He offers up access to the retailer’s 24/7-hour team of personal stylists, all the while making fun of things like his own inability to dial a number on a rotary phone.

Under the heading “J.Crew Gift Better”, the videos are narrated by Glenn O’Brien and link through to the J.Crew Very Personal Stylists page, where bookings can be made for advice on everything from styles to wear to sizes to find.

The taglines for the videos read things like: “Whether you’re gifting a camel or a zebra, we have something for everyone on your list. Let us help you solve your holiday dilemmas.” And: “Elephants are just like us—they can’t stand lines. That’s why we came up with a way to avoid them (and other holiday annoyances). Let us help.”

Check them out below…
