Bonds: The Queendom

Top 6: August 1st 2018
After heating things up in Coober Pedy, Bonds is back with another tongue-in-cheek campaign via Leo Burnett Melbourne. This time they've left the red dirt and men behind for Australia's iconic Blue Mountains, or "Bush Land" as the film cheekily dubs it.

The campaign launches the first Women's only release of the Bonds Originals product.

Says Emily Small, head of marketing, Bonds: "This range was made for young women and so we were excited to make some content that spoke to them. The brief was to create a space where confidence rules, without losing our Bonds sense of humour."

The result is a Bonds take on owning your femininity - in whatever form you want it to take.

Says Holly Burgess, copywriter, Leo Burnett: "The Queendom, a sassy twist on the traditional Kingdom, felt really natural. We were keen to throw a fewBonds_LB-Still_03.jpg stereotypes out the window and have a bit of fun with it in the process."

The fashion film shot by fashion director, Gracie Otto, features an all-female cast of six including Thelma, the very real (and really quite friendly) huntsman spider. The music for the spot was created by Kiwi artist, JessB.Meet the Queens_Bonds_LB_Still.jpg

The film follows a traveller, played by Indigenous model Zhoe Trotter, on her quest to find The Queendom. There she joins a community of strong women who look out for one another (some literally), chop wood with 'tude and crack nuts - all in Queen-like style.

The film is a part of a wider social campaign with a suite of short form content and interviews. It coincides with a grassroots fundraising event in store and online with the REACH Foundation, where profits from Bonds Originals on Saturday 11th August will go to support life-changing workshops for young girls.

The campaign is up now online and on TV from 23/07 in both Australia and New Zealand.
