Anil S. Kumar, COO, Allen Solly, said, "Driven by the need of the hour, wearing face masks has become a new normal. They are now an unavoidable necessity for the greater good. Our campaign aims to add a fresh and positive perspective to the concept of masks by connecting it to a human characteristic — Smile. With easing lockdowns, people have started venturing out and wearing a mask is the new norm. It becomes highly critical in such times to device messages carefully and creatively. Through our campaign, we are not just highlighting people’s duties and obligations but also empowering their trust in accepting masks as a way to express oneself just the way we do with our smiles. We strongly believe the campaign will add positivity and reinforce the importance of wearing masks to not only keep ourselves safe but put others around us at ease as well.”

Mahesh Gharat, CCO, Ogilvy South, said, "Masks are the essentials for the new world. But we don’t want people to feel they are a burden. Designed right, they can be cool, quirky and very endearing. Our easy-breezy film encourages people to wear a mask with a smile."

The upbeat video captures interesting slice-of-life situations and habits of people, now common around us. And it surely puts a smile on one’s face while reiterating the need to always wear a mask when stepping outside.

Allen Solly has launched its face masks range for men, women and kids. Allen Solly face masks are designed and developed with a unique three-layer filtration system that has a soft inner layer, followed by the middle melt-blown layer and lastly the trendy outer layer. The entire mask is treated with an anti-bacterial finish using the N9 pure silver technology.

While the masks are high on fashion, the brand has ensured longevity by creating long-lasting product life of up to 30 washes. The products have been engineered to offer maximum comfort to the consumer by ensuring they are highly breathable. Furthermore, these masks come with soft and comfortable elastic loops. Made using fine quality cotton and cotton blends, these lightweight masks are tested and certified in accordance with ASTM F 2101 for high bacterial filtration for up to 95%.

The brand is soon set to launch a range of seven-layer anti-viral masks in collaboration with HeiQ Viroblock.
