Polo

While this might not be the European content you were hoping for during Fashion Month, I wouldn’t say this campaign I worked on with Montana Cox is too far removed.

POLO Ralph Lauren is off to break some hearts with a husky voice, flat shoes, cheese, wine and last night’s mascara.

and stopping traffic.

Business as usual for our Monty.

So, while this might not be the architecturally glorious Parisian content you were hoping to turn up a Wednesday, I wouldn’t say our campaign is too far off – mainly attributable to that neon ‘Château‘ at St James Station, Ralph’s Blair Waldorf beret, and the forensically (aesthetically) reasonable inference that this POLO girl is probably off to break some hearts with a husky voice, flat shoes, cheese, wine and last night’s mascara.

Proceed with caution.
