All creative was done in-house by Tiffany with local activation support from iris Singapore and Adagio Events. The campaign also runs across print, cinema, online, events PR, partnerships and social.
The stunt was conceptualised to promote the Tiffany’s Paper Flowers of collection which is soon to be launching in September. According to Channel NewsAsia, the New York launch of the campaign also bore a similar strategy through takeovers in the New York subways and bodegas.
For the case of Singapore, the brand decided to do a takeover of a neighbourhood – Tiong Bahru, which a Tiffany spokesperson said was a famous neighbourhood, the report added. As for the coffee cart, ION Orchard was selected for its vicinity to one of the jeweller’s stores, and also its perception as one of the corners of the Orchard Road shopping district.
