Hörst brand identity by Lg2boutique

January 19th, 2012 by retail design blog

Lg2boutique’s mandate was to restyle the brand platform of Hörst, a designer and maker of high-end men’s clothing. Strategic research and the perceptual axes of the competitive field helped identify an important opportunity. Amongst large international players such as Hugo Boss, Versace, Strellson, Paul Smith and Ermenegildo Zegna, seduction proved to be the most ignored perceptual axis. This insight held great potential and offered the brand a credible positioning with which to enter the high-end market.

Hörst’s target likes to shop and is constantly on the lookout for that little elegant or eccentric something to reaffirm his style. He is a mature man who maintains a somewhat mysterious air. Seduction, in his view, is a game. With a slight penchant for the extravagant, he is the embodiment of the modern dandy. He takes great pleasure from his lifestyle, never slavishly bowing to the dictates of fashion. Going to the barber, learning music or taking the train for business are all things he makes time for. His entire person is seductive, rising above the everyday. He is authentic.

The “Authentisch Mann” signature highlights the brand’s German heritage — an important differentiator in a world of fashion dominated by French, Italian and British brands. Lg2boutique believed that all these elements defined a position that would permit the Hörst brand to standout from the field.
