AE Brand Connects Style and Youth Culture with Launch of First-of-its-Kind AR 3D Jeans Guide on Snapchat
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. (NYSE: AEO) announced today the launch of its American Eagle (AE) brand’s Spring ‘21 Jeans Are Forever campaign, a modern interpretation of a true denim lifestyle. As the #1 jeans brand in America, AE is continuously evolving experiences and products to represent the values of its core customer who is authentic, independent, optimistic, and inclusive. The Jeans Are Forever campaign is headlined by Chase Stokes and Madison Bailey. The collection of images and video was filmed to highlight nature—set outdoors to capture the beauty of green grass and blue skies, and the comfort and style of AE jeans.
This spring, AE will debut the AE x Snapchat AR Jeans Guide, featuring a range of fashion denim for men and women. The first-of-its-kind two multi-URL 3D shoppable jeans lenses will allow users to view different types of 3D AE jeans in augmented reality using the world-facing camera. By virtually twisting or turning each pair of jeans, the customer can learn about specific fits, washes, unique details, get styling tips and click to purchase.
“American Eagle’s Jeans Are Forever campaign is meant to uplift our customers and radiate good vibes—encouraging a true sense of optimism, especially now. We chose Chase and Madison to represent our customers and play up their true personalities in a candid way that felt real to who they are on and off screen,” said Jennifer Foyle, Chief Creative Officer, AEO Inc. and Global Brand President, Aerie. “Great jeans are always in style, and our American Eagle product teams are focused on the continuous development of new fabrics, fits and washes to provide quality and comfort—delivering the best in jeans innovation.”
