Elin Kling X Guess By Marciano Capsule Collection Launch
Elin Kling X Guess By Marciano Capsule Collection Launch; East Sydney, Australia …
East Sydney, Australia, and yet another product / fashion launch, with the usual splash of celebrities.
Firstly, Marciano is a leading lifestyle brand by Guess, so with that out of the way, a bit of colour banter to keep you interested with a bit of back story…
It’s said "celebrity sells", but time will tell in seeing just how long the product world will continue to roll out the celebrities. Clearly, Guess and friends are sticking with the formula for the time being.
Of course, you have the A list, B list and C list et al… this event was a mix, to be fair. It’s all really about selling product and trying to make it fly off the shelves in the end, and playing the media card. A tad more interesting than reading fashion advertisements in the even thinning Australian broadsheets – newspapers and fashion magazine advertising doesn’t come cheap either. News coverage usually beats regular advertising, so the fashion and lifestyle product world will likely continue to hold bashes and parties while playing the celeb card for a while yet.
Next week Australia will get more brand launches, more fashion parties, with many of the usual suspect celebs coming along just to be seen and read about themselves in the paper – or online – whatever the case. Add a bit of gossip… you get a bit of news, and wallah – there’s another PR campaign in the bag.
Guess (styled as GUESS) is an American clothing line brand. Guess also markets other fashion accessories besides clothes, such as watches, jewelry and perfumes. The company also owns the line Marciano.
The company began advertising in 1982, then later they introduced their iconic black-and-white ads in 1985. The ads have won numerous Clio Awards. Their fashion models have included a number of supermodels, many of whom, such as Claudia Schiffer, Eva Herzigova, Valeria Mazza, and Laetitia Casta, first achieved prominence via these ad campaigns.
Marciano is an Italian given name and it originates from Latin Marcianus or Marcian (Saint Marcians) or "Martians" or Martianus. Also from the cult of Roman god Mars.
Elin Kling is a Swedish fashion blogger born in 1983 in Sweden. She runs a Scandinavian fashion blog called Style by Kling.
Elin Kling started off her career in fashion as a model, with her base in Milano, Italy. Over the years she has also worked within Swedish Television-business.

Text Appearing Before Image:
ain his name to you I bring, The Public Heart! That is The Sanctum Kingl Yes, mid unceasing worry and turmoil, To serve that Heart, the Editor nmst toil ; Under Its bidding must his efforts be; It forms part of the editorial We. Why do the papers gossip, would you know ? Because—the public ear would have it so. Our journals not a favorite breakfast-dish, Unless it gossips to the public wish; And even they who call the stuff absurd, Will sit and groan, and—read it every word. Why do we thread mens motives throand thro? Because our king. The Public, tells us to! Why do we quote the wedding chimes and hues ? Because our Queen is waiting for the news. Why do we type on useless stories waste? To please some portions of the public taste ! Why do we into secret haunts repair? Because a curious public sends us there! Why do we tell the crimes of all the lands ? Because The Public Heart their tale demands! Why are we deep in politics immersed? Because The Public fought and quarreled first!
Text Appearing After Image:
The Sanctum Kin^. i8i Why do we toil witli all that we possess?Because The Public Brain will take no less!Acknowledged let our proud position be :The Public Hearts prime-ministers are we! Men of the Press! to us is given, indeed, To shape the growing appetites we feed ! We must from day to day and week to week, To elevate our Monarchs motives seek, That he may, with an open, liberal hand, Higher and higher things of us demand ! So let us cut our own progressive way— So onward toil, through darkness and through day; So let us in our labor persevere, Unspoiled by praise—untouched by blame or fear; Learn to distinguish, with true, patient art, The private pocket from The Public Heart; Learn how to guide that Heart, in everj choice, And give its noblest thoughts its purest voice! Till so The Press The Public Heart may move, That day by day they mutually improve: That high and higher each the other bring. Till God Himself shall be The Sanctum King!
