Global – Retailer H&M has released a new aspirational video with a twist.
In the spirit of emerging retail trend Seasonless Style, H&M shows that when it comes to fashion there are no rules except one: recycle your clothes.
Narrated by and featuring ageless wonder Iggy Pop, the short film follows trendsetters from around the world who pay no heed to convention and do whatever feels right. Just when viewers think the message is going to be about individuality, H&M spins the premise on its head with Close the Loop, its global campaign promoting vertical integration.
‘We’re taking the idea of recycling a step further with our commitment to closing the loop – we’ll literally turn your old clothes into new garments to avoid fashion going to waste.’
