Addiction London is launching its first advertising campaign for isme, the new brand from Shop Direct Group. The campaign incorporates a 30” TV commercial as well as sponsorship idents and print advertising.
The campaign begins this week with sponsorship idents for Loose Women and is followed up by the TV commercial, which runs from 1st of February for six weeks across both terrestrial and digital channels. Shop Direct Group is the UK’s largest home shopping company and is home to brands such as Littlewoods.com, Very.co.uk and K&Co. Shop Direct Group’s new brand, isme, is aimed at the mature market and features actress Lynda Bellingham as brand spokeswoman.
The tag line for the campaign is “It’s who you are now” and highlights the fact that women in this age group often have difficulty finding fashionable clothes that suit them and that fit them properly.
Gareth Jones, Group Retail Director of Shop Direct Group said: “We are very excited about the launch of isme. The fashion conscious mature lady has been underserved by the high street and isme will provide great clothes that both fit and flatter her. The appointment of Lynda Bellingham as our brand ambassador together with the great creative ideas Addiction London have developed will really resonate with the isme customer.”
Paul Hamilton, Managing Director, Addiction London said: “Shop Direct is one of the country’s most successful retail groups and we are absolutely delighted to be working with them to launch this exciting new brand.” Addiction London was appointed by Shop Direct in December 2010 after a competitive pitch against a variety of other agencies.
