It’s the question I get all the time. This year we are allowing everyone to be there in the Dominican Republic, with us and the models, to experience the Swimsuit issue in a completely immersive way.” As part of their sponsorship, Lexus also had a VIP lounge at the Swim City events in New York City and Miami where models, guests, and fans alike could mingle and network.

Lexus Teams Up With Jeremy Scott for New York Fashion Week

By | Lexus News | No Comments

Lexus Teams up with Jeremy Scott for New York Fashion WeekLexus has teamed up with fashion designer Jeremy Scott to increase recognition of their sponsorship of New York Fashion Week. The brand has wrapped Lexus SUVs with prints from their fall 2016 line-up. The ten Lexuses drove around New York City on February 11 in order to promote the prints that Jeremy showed at his February 15th fashion “space-cowgirl” inspired show. Jeremy Scott spoke about the collection to WWD saying, “I think it’s a fun and exciting way to promote my work during fashion week when all the industry’s participants are in New York to see the shows. I’m already tickled about the idea of spotting the Jeremy Scott printed Lexus’ zooming around town.” Lexus’s corporate manager, product marketing and marketing communications, Brian Bolain said about the collaboration, “[Jeremy Scott’s] designs have been bold and disruptive in the fashion space. We recognize how that energy aligns with the direction of the Lexus brand.”

To further increase the awareness of their presence at New York Fashion Week, Lexus created a mobile advertisement with Harper’s Bazaar. The ad catches consumers’ attention with a series of flashing images and text and was featured on the homepage of Harper’s Bazaar’s mobile site. Bolain says about this new approach, “Lexus has a sponsorship with Elle to promote its partnership with NYFW. The buy is further extended into the Hearst network of sites targeting fashion enthusiasts, which includes Harper’s Bazaar. It was important to highlight Lexus’ presence at NYFW to Elle’s audience because of Lexus’ focus on cutting-edge design, as showcased through the newly redesigned Lexus RX.” The ad utilizes dynamic imagery and patterns to showcase Lexus’s creative and fashion forward outlook. If the user clicks to see more information, they will be redirected to Lexus’ Send Them a Signal Tumblr, rather than the brand’s Web site. “Lexus’ ‘The Signal’ taps into the built-in community of social fashion enthusiasts on Tumblr. The Tumblr imagery exhibits forward-thinking style that is inspired by Lexus. Overall, we felt this was a better experience for Elle’s fashion enthusiasts who may not be currently in-market for a vehicle versus directing them to product information on the RX,” said Bolain.

CbXD-B4W8AA8D5tLexus became the main sponsor of New York Fashion Week after Mercedes-Benz stepped down as title sponsor in 2015. Although Lexus has not decided to have New York Fashion Week called the Lexus New York Fashion Week like Mercedes-Benz. Andrea Lim, engagement marketing manager at Lexus says about this decision, “Fashion week is about the business of fashion, not the business of automobiles. Our place is to support the industry at a time where there’s a lot of focus of what’s new and what’s coming.” Leslie Russo, senior vice president of fashion sales at IMG, which organizes fashion weeks around the world, including New York’s spoke about the connection between fashion and cars saying, “Fashion is a reflection of what’s going on in our culture — people in fashion have an appreciation of art, design, culture — and a lot of auto brands reflect that in their own positioning.”  Lim agrees, saying “Many luxury auto brands share a lot of same core principles [as fashion brands]. There’s the same appreciation for luxury, design, craftsmanship, attention to detail; both are big-ticket purchases.”
