ASICS launch AW18 Collection

01. TASK

Create buzz around ASICS new collection and change the perception of ASICS performance wear

Always Human was tasked with the objective of changing female perceptions on ASICS product.

ASICS has always been regarded as a brand with incredibly technical and high quality product, however has been considered to cater mainly to running and traditional sports.

We were asked to educate media and influencers on the style and functionality of the product, in an activity and morning that was not stereotypical ‘ASICS’.

02. STRATEGY

ASICS hosts luxe morning yoga class

We curated an experience for influencers and media to attend a yoga class and breakfast.

The purpose of the yoga class was to elevate ASICS performance wear in an activity that set the product apart from their typical disciplines.

All attendees were gifted with new product prior, which was selected with their personal style in mind.

We leveraged ASICS sports profiles including Rugby 7’s stars, Charlotte Caslick, Alicia Quirk and Emilee Cherry, as well as Australian Cricketer, Holly Ferling and professional netballer, Jamie-Lee Price. The attendance of this talent was an opportunity to engage media on a deeper level and add credibility which spanned beyond typical events of this nature.

The venue was selected with the intention of showcasing ASICS in a beautiful and contemporary space to again highlight the versatility of the collection.

The event was executed in a feminine, detail oriented environment which included ASICS touches across all facets – coffee cups, coffee top stencils, decals across all walls and kitchen benches.

All guests were gifted with an ASICS bag at the conclusion of the event. This included epsom salts, a silk sleep mask and a candle which all catered to ASICS principles of ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’.

All guests shared the feedback that they had experienced ASICS in a way they had not perceived before. The feminine, stylish product spoke to an entirely new audience and all media in attendance expressed how excited they were to work with the brand moving forward.
