Eddie Bauer, the US retail and home shopping catalogue business, is

launching in the UK this month with a pounds 1 million campaign by

Duckworth Finn Grubb Waters.



The clothing company, which has more than 500 stores in the US, 21 in

Japan and six in Germany, will open two UK stores this autumn, in

Bromley and Cardiff.



The launch ads focus exclusively on the clothing by digitally removing

the models from a series of photographs shot against stunning landscapes

on the US West Coast.



Michael Finn, managing director of Duckworth Finn, said: ’We wanted to

convey the idea of getting out and chilling out.



We shot the pictures in Seattle to capture the feel of the outdoors and

came up with the idea of removing the models to leave only the clothes

and the background. This way you can read yourself into the

picture.’



The first wave of the campaign, running from the end of September until

Christmas, will include local posters, bus and radio ads for the retail

outlets. The Bromley store opened on 4 September, while the Cardiff shop

launches on 25 September.



A national press campaign in women’s magazines and weekend supplements

will support the catalogue business, launching this month.



The campaign was art directed by Mike London and written by James

Fryer.



Media planning and buying is through New PHD.



Finn added: ’More stores are planned, including one in a prime London

location. The company will only open at principal high-street outlets

and will not take secondary locations.’
