Translation has launched a new campaign for American Eagle Outfitters (AEO), having been tapped by the specialty apparel retailer for the 2014 Back-to-School season. Entitled “I’MPERFECT,” the work takes a defiant stance against the one-size-fits-all beauty paradigm embraced by other fashion brands. The campaign insight taps into AEO’s long-standing role as a true champion for the democratization of denim, offering 22 fits, 81 washes, and 84 sizes – a staggering 1,500+ options – to fit any person and personality.
