INTERNATIONAL: International Gallery; Levi’s Hunt Lascaris TBWA

Hunt Lascaris TBWA addresses the sensitive subject of race in this year’s poster campaign for Levi’s. One execution shows a hand with the words, ‘we are not born racist’, scrawled on its palm, while another shows six embryos - one of each from a reptile, a fish, a horse, a human, a chicken and a pig. Five are identical, only the pig shows any difference. For its press work, Hunt Lascaris continues the theme of identification, this time on a social rather than a natural level. Five different pictures of a coat hanger are presented, each representing a different style of Levi’s jeans. A normal hanger is tagged ‘regular’, while the wire is completely unravelled for ‘relaxed’ fit. In ‘loose’ fit, only the neck is partially unravelled.
