Inspired by the celebratory spirit of the festive season, India’s leading footwear
brand Bata India, has launched the Impressions Collection. Featuring Kartik Aryan, the collection launch
is an extension of the 360-degree title campaign, It’s Got to be Bata.
As the year rounds up, the last few months are marked by a spirit of festivities across India – from Durga
Pujo, to Diwali, Christmas and New Year. Families and friends come together to feast, celebrate and
create timeless memories. Whether it’s a wedding or a casual get-together with friends, consumers
want to make the most of these moments and they are eager to indulge in new fashion to look good.
Bata India’s new Impressions Collection is derived from the consumer insight that great shoes and
apparel gets one noticed and kickstarts conversations at get-togethers and parties – If it’s a celebration,
It’s Got to be Bata.
Commenting on the new launch, Gunjan Shah, MD and CEO, Bata India Limited said,
“Bata India, as a brand, is woven into the cultural fabric of India. As the nation gets ready to revel in
festivities, we are proud to present our new Impressions Collection – a wide array of stylish footwear
ranging from ethnic to western and fusion to get you ready for any celebratory occasion, re-iterating the
message — If it’s a celebration, It’s Got to be Bata.
Featuring Bata, Bata Red Label, Marie Claire, Hush Puppies and Naturalizer brands; the collection has an
extensive range of glimmering block heels, comfort wedges, festive juttis and fusion sneakers. The
collection will further strengthen Bata’s proposition as the one-stop destination for all footwear needs.”
Bata’s new campaign film, conceptualized by Contract Advertising follows Kartik Aryan and Wamiqa
Gabbi at a party and Wamiqa mistakenly steps on his shoes. Kartik is instantly impressed by her gold
metallic block heels and tries to initiate a conversation. Wamiqa, however, smilingly walks away with a
witty reply. When their paths cross again, it is Kartik’s Bata shoes that catch her attention and leave a
lasting impression. The TVC ends with a snippet of the all-new Impressions Collection – styles that
match every occasion.
