Another example of co-branding: Veuve Clicquot and DKNY

I've written extensively on co-branding and brand partnerships already, and am always on the lookout of interesting examples in this area. Today, I'd like to share a recent example of a brand partnership between a Champagne brand Veuve Clicquot and a fashion brand DKNY: co-branded boots.

The funky product concept and design play an important role in spicing up both brands, and create good publicity in fashion magazines and online.

Note that both Veuve Clicquot and DKNY are part of the LVMH group. It's a smart move on the part of LVMH as it's promoting both of its brands at the same time.  Initiated within such multi-brand groups as LVHM, such co-branding initiatives can be used to revitalize tired brands by creating partnerships with more successful brands from the same portfolio.

An example of co-branding: Naked Wines and Naked Chef

jamie_oliver_naked_wines In June I featured an interview with Rowan Gormley, founder of Naked Wines, a funky online wine retailer from the UK. And here is some awesome news about Naked Wines: just recently, the company has entered into a partnership with Jamie Oliver, a popular chef.

This is a great example of co-branding, an alliance between two companies whose co-operation can enhance reputation of each brand. The partnership is very logical, not only because food and wine go hand in hand. In fact, both brands are "naked" -- Naked Wines, and Jamie, who's also referred to as Naked Chef.

So, it´s just natural for two ¨naked¨ funky brands to team up. Let´s keep an eye on their great project. And now, watch a video about it.
