Case Study 01: Gentle Monster X Li Yifeng


Case summary:  Gentle Monster cooperated with Li Yifeng to launch the Dream Visit Space of the same name as Li Yifeng's birthday concert. Meanwhile, Little Monster had a limited release of 1987 sets of Dream Visit sunglasses and customized peripheral products.


Editor's comments:  How does a brand value and leverage its co-stars? This has become the key subject that a lot of brands in China market must think about. Chinese social media and e-commerce give brands the power to truly test the commercial value of stars. The collaboration between Gentle Monster and Li Yifeng brought this test offline.

Gentle Monster, who is great at creating offline immersive experience, took Li Yifeng's childhood as inspiration. During the same period of his Dream Visit birthday concert, it especially created an offline experience space for installation, multimedia and performing arts. The brand gave full play to its strengths in creating space, shortened the distance between fans and Li Yifeng, and strengthened the awareness and goodwill of the brand by guiding fans to offline activities.

In terms of online marketing, Gentle Monster and Li Yifeng started to increase the enthusiasm of consumers and fans through Weibo in advance, and made full use of the star power of social media influence and fans, which brought buzz and traffic to the brand.

Of course, such cooperation also has potential risks, such as the selection of stars, the form of brand implantation, fans' expectations of cooperation and feedback.



Case summary:  Cartier launched CLASH DE CARTIER, a more youthful collection, and opened a 6-day jewelry experience exhibition in K11 Shanghai. The brand also launched a WeChat Mini Program with guided tour function to match with the exhibition. Users were able to make an appointment to try on new products and participate in the interactive part of the exhibition  through WeChat Mini Program. 


Editor's comments: Jewelry brand exhibitions are not new -- the difference however is that Cartier integrated more online and offline interaction links.

Offline exhibitions can attract the attention of young consumers through a variety of interactive methods, especially through interactive devices that are more suitable for young people to take photos and share. 

In terms of online channels, Cartier used WeChat Mini Program as a key part of the exhibition interaction. In addition to the navigation function, users who participated in the interaction part were able to upload selfies to WeChat Mini Program and save them. By scanning the QR code on site, they were then able to see their photos on the wall.
