“We were inspired by the glitz, glamour, and opulence of the 1940s’ Big Band era,” says Johan Renck, director of the commercial. “The mood is one of festive celebration shot through with a strong sense of fashion and underlying humor. It is intriguing, curious, exuberant, audacious, and filled with wonder.”
The TV commercial depicts an enchanting adventure celebrating the holiday spirit of giving and togetherness with an H&M family of supermodels and superstars! There’s a glistening mood as the viewer travels through a series of holiday moments finally ending with a large Big Band celebration.
