The French retailer Auchan has launched a new promotion concept. It’s catalogue has been enriched with at least 10 music videos illustrating online promotions. Each of the videos use a different music genre, with some of the song’s lyrics adapted to the products.
Why it matters
Product catalogues are now becoming pieces of entertainment in their own right. Will we soon see music videos, games and other forms of entertainment enter every element of the shopping experience?
Fashion brand C&A launched the "Like Fashion” operation, that connects the stores with the brand’s Facebook page. Every time a fan of the brand likes a clothing item online, the ‘like’ is recorded on the clothes hanger located at the point of sale in real-time.
The ultimate fashion taboo is attending an event to find someone else is wearing the same outfit. Brands such as Vakko and Harvey Nichols have recognised this need and have created a solution in their personal tracking system which tracks where pieces have been bought to eliminate two people buying for the same occasion. The store will open at what ever time and send a different dress to the event.
