#GucciMadeToMeasure with James Franco
Gucci has enlisted James Franco as the face of its newest fragrance, entitled Made to Measure.
The new male fragrance is inspired by Gucci’s pristine and trademark tailoring, also known as the Made to Measure suit. Gucci is also enlisting its social media channels to help get the word out. Gucci’s Facebook app provides information on the scent to give fans an idea of what to anticipate. Furthermore, expect to see a lot of promotional images of Franco gracing Gucci’s Facebook page! Amongst the Made to Measure ads, Gucci is also playing up its latest women’s fragrance, entitled Première.
Gucci is also pulling out all the stops on its official Twitter page, by using the hashtag #GucciMadeToMeasure. By starting the conversation, Gucci is hoping to interact with fans of the brand, and moreover, future fans of the fragrance. Who isn’t excited for this upcoming campaign?
“I’m always excited to work with Gucci,” shares Franco, “and the relationship has grown a lot. We are great collaborators and are on the same page.”
The print and media campaign will be photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, with the commercial being filmed by movie director Nicolas Winding Refn. Look for a global launch of the fragrance to debut in late August.
“James has an innate ability to fuse classic with contemporary style and interpret formalwear in an individual way, personifying the spirit of our Made to Measure man our clients relate to,” states Frida Giannini, Gucci’s creative director.
Franco is no stranger to the Gucci brand; check out his 15-minute short film, for Gucci, entitled La Passione. Drama and Gucci, all rolled into one!
