Cortefiel: a real brand for real people

The challenge

To turn around Cortefiel, a Spanish fashion brands which, despite changes already applied to its collections,was still perceived as a stagnated and aged fashion brand.

The approach

Give the brand a younger touch and prove it has indeed changed by…

  1. Positioning it as a brand that celebrates real people who inspire all of us.
  2. Turning it into a value content generator transforming its catalogue into a real magazing and creating special actions to gain impact and interest from the target audience: concerts in store windows, young artists exhibitions, book signings, yoga sessions, etc.
  3. Including a subtle sense of humor in its communication tone.

Season concepts

Each season is based in a concept representing values from both Cortefiel and real people (sometimes a little known to the audience, sometimes not so) who have become social models for everyone:

  • Fall-winter, 2012-13: ‘Brave people’.
  • Spring-summer 2013: ‘Talented people’.
  • Fall-winter, 2013-14: ‘People who pave the way’.
