What was Chanel thinking?
Executional Factors are kept (tone, media logo) but Celebrety Endorsers and Users Imagery are changed. Why?
“To keep a legend fresh, you always have to change its point of view. It is the first time we’ve had a man speaking about a women’s fragrance. We think very much that the perfume is a seduction between a man, a woman and the perfume.”
Andrea d’Avack, president, Chanel Fragrance & Beauty
Will this move influence the Brand Image (positively or negatively), and Brand Personality of Chanel? Why?
In the Ad Pitt refers to Channel No. 5. as his life affection.
In real life his affection is Angelina Jolie ( who exemplifies the typical Chanel Image)
