Chanel, Chanel, Chanel. What’s Wrong With You?

11 Sep

Come on now. I know you’ve got the goods. Your latest print campaign is beautiful. And the email I got last night for the same campaign was okay. But the “private” microsite to which it redirects (username: mademoiselle, password: private)? Stuffy. Lackluster. Prosaic. Shall I go on? I’m sure it cost you a small fortune to make this site about Coco Chanel’s apartment. But video for video’s sake can be a huge mistake. It was well filmed. The sound design is very nice. But after spending a minute on the site, I wanted to roll around on a bed of pushpins, douse myself in rubbing alcohol and then light a match.
