Finally, I have started my own blog! This first post is a little bit of news I picked up on the grapevine a while back. LSoD not only focuses of the wonderland of menswear but a mix of news and bits that grabs my attention. Enjoy!
Out of the pit-stop and into the fast lane, is Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton to front the clothing campaigns for super chain Marks and Spencer?
Lewis Hamilton, above top, will be confirmed as the new face of M&S this month, who this year celebrate their 125th anniversary as a stalwart of the British High Street.
With a successful campaign fronted by 60’s icon Twiggy, above bottom, and various other celebrities the company has announced a 1.7% rise in sales during the three months to June 27th.
But will Twiggy be joining Hamilton for the ride? My sources say M&S will axe Twiggy as soon as possible, a possible response to waning consumer interest in the brand during this tiresome recession. Whilst people still need to eat during hard times, M&S have been slow to act but are finally currently slashing prices. Does this include the advertising budget?
Remember, this isn’t just gossip, this is M&S gossip.
