Advert for Stella x The Beatles collection:

 

 

I love how little of the clothes you see, you know the thing they're trying to make you buy (€400 for a t-shirt, bargain!).

She’s learnt well from Apple who will happily charge you £300 for four luxury limited edition paper spoons that play excerpts of ‘Hey Bulldog ’ as you use $299 limited edition deluxe honey (which play an excerpt of either ‘A Taste Of Honey ” or ‘Cry Baby Cry ’ even time the 25g jars are opened). 

 

I feel more more sorry for Jeremy, and everyone involved in creating ‘Yellow Submarine ’, for seeing their work appear in such an abomination of an advert. 

The song/music, whatever the hell it was meant to be, was dire and the clothes look ghastly and unwearable - which may be why they feature so little in the commercial. Folk may blindly purchase due to it being Beatles whereas if they actually get a good look they cancel their order and shop elsewhere.

You mean you don't want a tacky, multicoloured, fake fur pimp coat, mmm? What about the long coat drenched in obnoxious, loud Beatles patches?

 

This is fashion, right?!

The strangest thing is you never see anyone actually wearing these apparently fashionable, desirable outfits. Someone must so maybe it’s the thought of having it yet not wanting to look so utterly stupid when out. One of those where the knowledge of having something so expensive is worth shoving it at the back of a walk-in wardrobe - plus having more money than common sense.

It's very London street youth fashion- loud, brash attention grabbing by posh twats, who take a gap yah in Senegal to help the 'poor people' but do more harm than good. 

The clothes cost next to nothing to produce (as I've mentioned before I used to work in a posh department store and markups are HUGE! Lingerie in particular often had a 200% markup....yes).  

At least with Stella's jumpers you get virgin wool...well worth your €550....

Don't worry, I've probably thought of all of them too.

 

It's the wool from the first sheering a lamb receives, the softest wool you can ever get. Now I know many sheep farmers so if Stella would like to buy the wool for mucho dolla, I would ask for a small monetary compensation to put her in contact with the fine gentlemen.

 Tell her the really good sheep farmers are incredibly rare yet highly in demand and therefore it will cost her £8k to meet one. If she questions the cost, pull out one of her coats; she’ll get the message and you’ll probably get a rude reply or a slap. It’s business. 

Tho you’d have to have one of her coats to do so. Erm, just keep the receipt and don’t let any sheep near it.

No where in Ireland stocks her stuff (bar the department store I used to work at sold her lingerie and handbags- €110 for a bikini top anyone? Not even a complete set, just the top- bottoms will be another €100, thanks). 

I'll have to do a day trip to Manchester or London to visit Selfridges, how thrilling.

You can order online. Modern technology is wonderful at helping you waste money you don’t have to spend on things you never wanted and will never use.

Need to try it on first, how will I know if my €500 jumper suits me or not? Can't be bothered with those postal returns and I get to spend a fun day in Manchester...

Going by that commercial I’m not sure the jumper is meant to suit you. Far more fashionable to look stupid.

Another Stella ad, now featuring her designs for children. As is common with a lot of children's lines, they look nicer than the actual adult ones.

 

Must be nice to be able to spend €80 on a jumper for your 4 year old that they'll grow out of within a few months.

 

Good to know The Beatles image is continuing in the grand tradition of being sold out, keep up the good work!

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Show me that without telling me it was a Stella advert and I would have never guessed it was for clothes, more a Beatles cartoon meets live action concoction with a point I'm not too sure it's making.

Presumably the people who buy this stuff don't watch the adverts as they fail to inform you what they are actually selling - which I would have thought was kind of important but apparently not.

^Clothes ads are never as bad as perfume, at least Stella features her product in her ads:

On a note, POP came out just as I was leaving working in clothing sales (let's hope I'm never back there again, unless it's something like buyer or marketer). It's very popular with young, working women (from about 22 onwards). She hit her niche well with her marketing.

 

For a nonsensical fragrance ad, look no further than Dior:

(Also I don't think Johnny Depp is the best person to market your fragrance- I look at Depp and I think he smells of whiskey, cigarettes and p*ss).

To be fair to the creators, how would you make a perfume advert both interesting and relevant to the product? Clothes can have people dancing around looking happy as you can then see them; spraying perfume on someone/yourself just looks dull.

Suppose you can do that then show them going out but could it get more exciting? Not that having a celeb/model looking like they are constipated/angry/moody/sexy/bored is any better or more relevant.
