According to a new campaign, if you look in your top drawer you’ll probably find at least one piece of Bonds wear. In an effort to remind people the uniquely beloved place the brand holds across all ages and demographics, Bonds has launched a new brand platform: ‘As worn by us’.

Created by Special Group and produced by Wildebeest, over 20 days were spent on the road, traveling Australia from Mullumbimby to Perth, Melbourne to the Tiwi Islands, capturing footage of everyday Australians wearing Bonds.

The campaign includes a suite of films voiced by Noni Hazelhurst with each spot starting where the last one left off to present a seemingly never-ending chain of Aussies in Bonds.


 

For OOH the campaign captured over 100 photographic portraits of Australians wearing Bonds at every year of life from ages 0 to 100.

A large-scale installation at Melbourne’s Parliament Station saw all the portraits presented together, showcasing a rich array of characters from farmers to wrestlers to dancers to accountants, beginning with newborn, Adeline, in her Bonds Newbies and concluding with 100-year-old Geoffrey, in his Chesty. Another reminder that no matter our differences we all have Bonds in common.


 

“The campaign is a celebration of these stories, connections and the unique bond we all share – from the littlest newborn bub to the 100-year-old still rocking our humble Chesty singlet,” said Kedda Ghazarian, Head of Marketing at Bonds.

“When it comes to wearing Bonds, there’s often only one degree of separation between us all,” added Ryan Fitzgerald, Executive Creative Director at Special.

“Bringing these connections to life took us all over the country. So many beautiful folks invited us into their lives and in many cases, stripped down to their undies. Seeing the authentic love out there for Bonds was something to behold and spectacular proof that it really is the brand as worn by us.”
