Chennai, October 2019: India’s leading menswear brand, Indian Terrain is all set to mark its 20th anniversary with Brand Ambassador Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the launch of its latest campaign, ‘The Spirit of Man’. The campaign balances style with substance to recognize the lives and aspirations of the brand’s audience. Further, to set the pace for a new decade in its journey, the campaign showcases the legend himself, Mahendra Singh Dhoni highlighting the brand’s latest Autumn-Winter ’19 collection.
Nations are built on the shoulders of mankind. They may not realise it, but every person in the country, just by living their daily lives and chasing their personal ambitions, unwittingly contributes to the growth of a nation. The campaign highlights this insight and celebrates every individual who contributes, in their own way, to build the Indian dream. Targeted towards the youth & millennials, the campaign encourages its young audience to pursue their dreams.
Speaking on the campaign, Mr. Venkatesh Rajagopal – Executive Chairman, Indian Terrain Fashions Limited commented, “The Spirit of Man is defined by relentless passion, strive for perfection & a pursuit of excellence. Our campaign is inspired from this thought and an insight, that a bigger picture is painted by a million smaller aspirations. Through the campaign, we celebrate the lives of every single man in the country, as they contribute in their own way towards building the Spirit of the Nation.”
Indian Terrain is targeted towards the young millennial consumer who straddles between work and play effortlessly in cool yet comfortable clothing.
Mr. Charath Narsimhan – Managing Director & CEO, Indian Terrain Fashions Limited said, “Our customers are people who embody the true Spirit of Man, growing their own lives and the world around them. We wanted to validate this optimism in a meaningful way through this campaign. MS Dhoni is the perfect fit for us as a brand that champions a strong value system and connect with young Indians.”
The cinematic & inspiring TVC for the campaign has been conceptualized by Indian Terrain’s advertising agency Brave New World, directed by Manoj Pillai along with the production House, Think Pot. It portrays the faces and lives of a cross section of men from the country acknowledging their contribution towards building the nation.
Mr. Joono Simon – Founder and CCO, Brave New World Agency said, “Brands often speak to their audiences from ivory towers, especially so in the fashion category. This was an opportunity for Indian Terrain to leverage the approachable emotional equity that MS Dhoni has among legions of fans. It was our goal to create a narrative of personal relevance and worth for viewers, with the people’s captain as the perfect example of what an individual can accomplish. Not through swagger, but belief, everyday action and sheer will. Every aspect of the film, from music, casting, choice of words and imagery, was a deliberate choice to connect the brand and those who will feel empowered by it.”
‘The Spirit of Man’ campaign is being rolled out across a 360 degree media campaign including Print, TV, Cinema & multiple Social & Digital platforms.
