The partnership between Y-3 and Virgin Galactic offered the ideal opportunity to re-assert the heritage messaging of Y-3 as THE original sport-style brand whilst raising its profile to a wider audience
Y-3 Virgin Galactic
We took hand-selected editors on a once in a lifetime experience – a private journey from the Virgin Galactic development facility in Mojave to Spaceport America to be the first in the world to see the prototype flight suit- delivering extended editorial across three key media sectors: design, style and tech.
A raft of powerful content, including a launch film, imagery and cinemagraphs, delivered widespread global coverage. All content was all underpinned by a central creative identity of fusing space, light and shade, presenting the story in a visually compelling way whilst providing creative consistency across assets.
Media sentiment around the announcement was overwhelmingly positive, with many leading titles referencing Y-3 as the only brand capable of such a forward-thinking partnership.
