Van Heusen launches its fashion collection â€˜Move Labsâ€™ with a new TVC
Van Heusen, India’s premium fashion power house brand for men and women from Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited, unveiled its latest innovative range for the contemporary man. Move Labs is a collection of engineered apparel crafted from ultra- stretchable fabric, with thoughtful design and an impressive aesthetic quotient. Its unique design and fabric not only adds a touch of class to wardrobes, but also adjusts to the dynamic lifestyle of the modern man. The dynamism that it lends to formal wear is clearly evident in the new TVC which shows Chase Armitage, an international Parkour artist performing gravity defying stunts attired in clothes from the Move Labs collection. The TVC showcases the functionality and aesthetics of the new collection effectively. Parkour, as a sporting discipline, is developed from military obstacle course training. The drill requires an ease of movement; which resonates in spirit with the Move Labs Collection.
The audio-visual begins with a fully-attired and ready-for-work Armitage finding himself stuck in a traffic jam. Sporting Van Heusen’s Move Labs collection, he more than hops, jumps and skips his way through the meandering traffic and congestion on the streets of London to reach his destination. The TVC attempts to make a powerful fashion statement while conveying the strength of the ergonomically engineered design of the collection. The collection is a first-of-its kind offering from the brand, which enhances the functionality of formal wear and makes it more dynamic.
Speaking on the campaign launch, Abhay Bahugune, Chief Operating Officer, Van Heusen, Aditya Birla Fashion and Lifestyle Limited said, “We are very excited to launch Van Heusen’s Move Labs collection, the first of its kind in India and in line with our larger vision of providing fashion with functionality through a range of innovative products that exceed our consumer’s expectations on the parameters of comfort, convenience and class.”
Saikat Mitra, Creative Director, Van Heusen added “Comfort is the new cool. Fashion meets Technology to create free flowing movement for active young professionals on the go! With Move Labs we researched ‘comfort dynamics’ to develop maximum comfort through razor sharp tailoring in New Age Blends, Smart Knits, High Stretch Fabrics, Performance Features and Engineered Ergonomics. We are pleased to partner with Chase Armitage and London served as the perfect setting for the best experiment in the world of tailoring. Watching him perform his daring stunts with utmost comfort reinstated the ethos of the Move Lab collection. Pramod Chavan, Creative Director, Famous Innovations, said, “We wanted to bring alive the innovativeness of the Van Heusen Move Labs collection in an interesting way. Parkour as a context complimented London as the setting to perfectly represent the functionality of the collection. Van Heusen, the brand is all about high energy, action, dynamism and this was a great opportunity to showcase the same”.
