Allied Media bags digital mandate for fashion brand Phive Rivers

Allied Media, the media planning, evaluation and buying agency of Percept, recently won the digital mandate for Phive Rivers, an international premium fashion brand for leather bags as its media agency of record (AOR). This mandate covers mainline and digital requirements of all the brand campaigns in India. The account will be handled from the agency’s Delhi office.

Phive Rivers wanted a dedicated agency to re-emphasis their focus on the digital medium. Allied Media bagged the account following the multi-agency pitch process. The agency has commenced work on the account and has already put a team in place to service Phive Rivers.

The brand has a clear vision about digital and has decided to use digital media as part of its overall marketing strategy for future and to further strengthen its position in the affordable luxury segment.

Commenting on the development, Mohit Gill, Commercial Director - India Operations, Phive Rivers said, “Allied Media’s enthusiasm, patience and innovative ideas made us choose them as our digital agency. The agency will have a vital role to play in repositioning the brand’s thought further as we grow and enabling Phive Rivers to achieve its aim of becoming a people’s first fashion choice when it comes to fashionable leather bags.”

Reacting to the win, Shripad Kulkarni, CEO, Allied Media said, “It’s not about digital marketing, but about a new perspective to marketing in the Digital Age. As more and more customers embrace digital, we need to recalibrate marketing plans. This association with Phive Rivers will give us another opportunity to break the myth while we take the brand to greater heights.”

Saurabh Gupta, Business Head, Allied Media Digital added here, “The team at Allied Media has designed a very niche digital strategy keeping in mind the ever growing fashion conscious consumer in India. We are looking to achieve a leadership position in the fashion market for Phive Rivers with the help of an interesting communication approach. All of us at Allied Media are very excited about this partnership and are hoping for a long fruitful association with the brand.”
