1920s clip from Bridgeman Footage's de Laszlo archive licensed for award nominated Lenor advert
Lenor has launched a European YouTube channel and has fillled it with absurdly detailed love letters to individual items of clothing. Grey Düsseldorf created the spots, each of which contains a 90-second ode to a specific garment, such as skirts, trousers, shirts and scarves. "We sourced individual clips from film makers all around the world as well as utilising stock libraries. It was a huge undertaking to source and clear these shots and the first project that we have fully produced."
For the loving ode to a scarf, a 1920s clip of a high society lady with voluminous scarf from Bridgeman Footage's exclusive de Laszlo Archive was licensed to the Director's Studio.
The advert is in the running for the Best Use of Footage in an Advert at the FOCAL International Awards, on 26 May 2016.
