LINKS OF LONDON Kicks Off a Colorful Friendship with Pantone
CARLSTADT, N.J., Aug. 5, 2009 - Links of London is celebrating friendship during the month of August with a colorful, global campaign. In a nod to the friendship bracelets we made as children, the Links of London Friendship Bracelet Collection of hand-woven, sterling silver designs is now available in a wide array of vibrant, eye-catching PANTONE® Colors.
“We are delighted to celebrate our iconic Friendship bracelet with a collaboration with Pantone – the ultimate authority on color. The highly distinctive PANTONE Color Palettes provide the perfect, high impact backdrop for this must-have accessory,” said Elizabeth Galton, creative director, Links of London.
For the campaign, Links of London turned to color authority Pantone to help bring the in-store display and windows to life. Links of London retail windows at over 85 locations worldwide now feature an array of colorful Friendship Bracelets alongside their corresponding PANTONE Color Numbers, complete with larger-than-life PANTONE Chips to show off the colors.
