Shiseido has brought out two further films following the launch of its Waso brand, a global skincare line aimed at millennials.
Waso’s new ‘On the road’ videos are directed by Julian Klincewicz, a filmmaker, artist and skateboarder. One features Jenny Choi, a young stylist, and the other stars Klincewicz himself and his girlfriend, Irie, who is also described as his muse.
Overseen by Wieden + Kennedy Tokyo, which led the launch campaign for the brand, the films aim to show the brand's products in the context of the spontaneous activities of young people. They also draw subtle connections between natural ingredients and the products.
Campaign’s view: As we said when the campaign first launched, the films have an elegance about them that is different to the majority of work in this sector. Colourful but with a faded, dreamlike quality enhanced by the soundtracks, they present snatches of life as it really is. Overall they are a refreshing contrast to the usual overly perfect imagery we have come to expect from anything beauty-related.
