Mercedes-Benz 2017: Susan Sarandon and the Concept EQ
Mercedes-Benz presents Chapter Two of the #mbcollective Fashion Story, a three-chapter story featuring international talents from various walks of life. Second story centres around the Concept EQ, Oscar-winning actor Susan Sarandon and her protégé, film maker Bryn Mooser.
Chapter One of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Story featured British musician, curator and artist M.I.A. (Generation Now) and her protégée Canadian rapper Tommy Genesis (Generation Next). Along with Luke Gilford, the two are among the first members of #mbcollective, an alliance of creative individuals who embody the values of the Mercedes-Benz brand.
“Generation Now, Generation Next” is a platform that offers today’s style-defining and influential personalities the opportunity to help promote tomorrow’s trendsetters.
Fashion Story: emotional connection
At the centre of the “Generation Now, Generation Next” campaign is the new, battery-electric Concept EQ with its “electro-aesthetic” styling. While Chapter One dealt with the start of a relationship, Chapter Two focuses on Susan Sarandon, her mentorship of Bryn Mooser and the connection between the two of them. The strength and energy generated by their relationship are emphasised by powerful red tones and expressive poses.
The new fashion campaign from Mercedes-Benz
In 2017 Mercedes-Benz departed from the traditional format of two seasonal campaigns and adopted a new, seasonless, direct line of communication with its global audience. Mercedes-Benz will continue to develop innovative ideas. The Stuttgart-based car manufacturer will concentrate on creating interesting social media content.
