Missed your chance. @Synthese
is scheduled for a change of scenery, and will next be seen at Bread&Butter, in Barcelona. Hopefully I will be there too, Then Synth will write stuff like "after having to endure Fok's bloviating about the plight oc Chinese migrant workers in Europe over a two hour dinner, he and Jen went back to the hotel, and at last, I could say "shit fuck dick cunt bitch asshole," like I'd wanted to all night to him. After getting that out of the system, I went and got royally wasted."
imagine how much better this story would be if i was in itpost #99273 of 1090539/3/14 at 4:45pmpost #99274 of 1090539/3/14 at 6:01pmpost #99275 of 1090539/3/14 at 6:57pmQuote:
Yeah, and for some products that's effective enough, but a third party editorial can create some additional context that can be just as much a selling point as the product itself, and at the very least, can be more interesting to look at than stock/lookbook photos.post #99276 of 1090539/3/14 at 7:18pmThread Starterpost #99277 of 1090539/3/14 at 8:16pmQuote:Originally Posted by iamacyborg
The fact that you're not journalists, or trying to pretend you are like so many bloggers out there works in your favour. I'm not saying you guys should be doing advertorial and pretending it's not paid content, I'm just saying that I think you guys should do more advertorial.
A brand paying you to share their cool stories with us sounds like a win/win situation to me.
I've not heard of Antenna, will have to see what they're doing.
One thing that we've been exploring, behind the scenes, are contests with giveaways. Not "product for review", but just... product. It's relatively inexpensive, especially for designer brands, and it's great marketing, as long as you have an interesting hook. Mainly, I've been thinking about doing campaigns like this mainly because I like free stuff. Unfortunately, the very guidelines I drew up would preclude me from actually getting anything :(post #99278 of 1090539/3/14 at 8:28pmQuote:
Wow, how did you find out about the Fall/Winter 2015/16 collection so soon?
Do you work for RO?
The shirting fabrics for F/W 2015/16 take place in September 2014- I read the reviews to decide to burn any £££ on new bespoke shirts - only 2 this year so far, but if the next shows have nice shirtings I'll order some in Jan 2015:)post #99279 of 1090539/3/14 at 8:37pmQuote:
Yes, he is Rick Owens' PR agent, and works with numerous celebrities - including Ryan Gosling - as a stylist. What he hears is usually accurate, too. If you PM him, he's probably happy to share more.post #99280 of 1090539/3/14 at 9:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by futuresailors

The current mechanism is an interesting way to let people 'shill' without getting caught up in the shilling. It's a great idea. I agree with you though, there is definitely other potential. If something doesn't work, you can always undo it. I doubt they'd lose much readership.

I think our entire editorial team has worked/works in higher education, so...
What we do well -- at least in my eyes -- is walk a fine line between using our connections to get access and abusing our connections to make a profit. StyleForum is a business, but I believe we handle our editorial side very ethically. There have been brands that have offered me free products in exchange for writing them up, but I've always turned them down.
It's also nice to see how over the last few years the site has become much more known. Three years ago when I'd approach designers and mention I'm from StyleForum and they'd look at me with blank, puzzled expression, but now, more often than not, their reaction is "oh yea I read your site all the time." Our readership numbers open a lot of doors, but at the same time we don't take that next step where we trade pageviews for thinly veiled "editorials" that are nothing more than product placement. When I rave about something I saw at Geller and like it's because I liked it -- not because he's paying me.
What kind of content would people like to see though? Unfortunately my schedule doesn't really allow me to travel that much these days, but hey virtual world and all.
At least for the editorial, please keep turning down those freebies. To be honest I think that the community can sniff out stealth marketing etc. Plus there's plenty of affiliate/fanboy threads if you want a rose-colored-glasses view.
As for editorial, I'd like to see more interviews with designers at the same time they release their seasonal collections. And not just designers per se, but also with people like Christian from Left Field, who ever chooses Gitman's fabrics etc.post #99284 of 1090539/4/14 at 5:58ampost #99285 of 1090539/4/14 at 6:46am
