LONDON—Topshop has collaborated with Pinterest on its holiday campaign, called “Dear Topshop,” which will be activated across all of the brand’s platforms, including stores, online, social media and editorial.
From today, the Topshop homepage will be transformed to feature quirky dropdown options for shoppers looking for “A Gift That Will Wow” or something for “Someone Who Loves Sparkle.” Topshop hopes that these categories will help its customers find the perfect gift or party season outfit.
The products returned in the search can then be pinned, shared on Facebook or Twitter, or shopped. The most pinned products will be featured on the TOPSHOP.com homepage every day.
A competition will run on Pinterest, whereby users can create holiday-inspired boards for the chance to win prizes including shopping sprees, the opportunity to design a “dream dress,” tickets to the brand’s Fashion Week show and invitations to the launch of Kate Moss’ upcoming collection for Topshop.
Giant touch screens at the London and New York flagship stores, iPad-wielding staff and calls to action tags on key merchandise will bring the campaign into the realm of bricks and mortar.
Sheena Sauvaire, Topshop’s global head of marketing and communications, said that the aim of the campaign was to showcase key product and facilitate the gifting process. “Pinterest, being a strong visual platform, was the ideal platform as it allows our customers to collect products and inspirations to share with family and friends,” she said.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
