After the departure of controversial CEO Mike Jeffries and amid flagging sales, ubiquitous teen fashion label Abercrombie & Fitch has wasted no time in revamping its brand image along cleaner, more candid lines. Headed by J. Crew alumna and now Creative Director of Marketing, Ashley Sargent Price, A&F’s new marketing campaign for the Holiday 2016 season is the brand’s largest-ever and was shot by Josh Olins and Matt Jones. Centered around the tagline “This Is Abercrombie & Fitch,” the revamp is introduced in the video above, which boldly opens by proclaiming, “People have a lot to say about us. They think they’ve got us figured out.” In an overt and era-appropriate break from its former identity, the company has also literally wiped the slate clean by deleting all former content on its Instagram account.
