HILTL

“Trouser couture that spans generations”

Successful brand campaign for premium men’s trousers

The high-quality trousers of HILTL are perfect for men who like to take a stand. Since 1955, the Sulzbach-Rosenheim-based company has been manufacturing premium, authentic men’s fashion. Company owner Fritz Hiltl was never intent on selling the most trousers – he wanted to sell the best. Today, the company still stands for trendy fashion made in Europe.

The challenges of the project

HILTL has always been about top-class products and a clear vision. What the brand lacked so far was a strong brand positioning and a target-group-oriented communication. To bridge this gap in a professional way, HILTL relied on the experts of elements and punkt & komma.

Drawing on the agencies‘ expertise in the fields of content creation and campaign management, HITLT wanted to stand out in the competitive fashion and e-commerce market. The time frame for creating a concept, planning the respective measures and implementing them was limited. During only five months, all project members got together to create a stylish brand campaign.

HILTL trousers embark on a journey …

… more precisely: on a hero’s journey. A tried and tested storytelling strategy was used to address customers in an emotional and powerful way. You might think that the campaign was all about the company’s core product, their trousers. Well, you’re wrong! Instead, it focused on the fashion-conscious men wearing HITLT trousers because of their high quality, functionality and stylishness.
