W Maldives partners with Reebok Women to redefine perfection via #PerfectNever campaign
W Maldives has partnered with the famous Reebok Women sports brand to host prominent influencers from seven countries, to redefine the notion of perfection via #PerfectNever campaign.
On August 25-27, Reebok Women invited 12 ladies from Southeast Asia and the Pacific to W Maldives as the faces and voices of their #PerfectNever campaign in the region, with the aim of flipping the conventional notion of perfection. The influencers include:
- Reebok Ambassador – Liv Lo
- Indonesia – Naysilla Mirdad, actress
- Indonesia – Olivia Lazuardy, fashion blogger
- Thailand – Lydia Sarunrat Deane, singer
- Singapore – Andrea Chong, fashion and travel blogger
- Singapore – Melissa Celestine Koh, fashion and travel blogger
- Malaysia – Kiran Jassal, model and Miss Universe Malaysia 2016
- Malaysia – Venice Min, blogger
- Philippines – Laureen Uy, blogger
- Philippines – Katarina Rodriguez, model and Asia’s Next Top Model finalist
- Vietnam – Chau Bui, fashion icon
- Australia – Amy Maree Comber, makeup artist and YouTuber
- Australia – Keira Rumble, travel and lifestyle blogger
These are influencers with a huge following on social media (approximately 7.7 million collectively) and admired for their flawless lifestyles. With the #PerfectNever campaign set in the perfect environment, the aim of the happening was to show that there are more to these women than the airbrushed images on their social media accounts – the grit and the determination that makes them human and ‘perfect’ in their own way.
During the three-day event, these women shared their life journey during both individual and sharing interview sessions. At the forefront of their minds were topics on comparing oneself to others, body shaming, bullying, personal insecurities and society’s definition of beautiful. Boundaries were also pushed with a 7am sunrise yoga session and a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout at sunset led by Reebok’s Ambassador Liv Lo. A combat workout was also conducted by W Maldives’ own fitness instructor Mark Angeles.
According to W Maldives, social media content generated during the event for #PerfectNever garnered a reach of 8,910,066 and 35,911,486 in impressions.
The actual #PerfectNever digital campaign launched on October 1 with a full video that summarises the #PerfectNever experience at W Maldives and a voiceover that encapsulates the campaign message. The influencers shared their #PerfectNever story through 60 seconds’ videos of their individual journeys; pictures of their perfect self and ‘tough fitness’ pictures of them geared in Reebok attire.
