The fashion designer gives our packaging a sparkling new look




"I feel very privileged to be the new creative director for Diet Coke’s 2013 campaign and put my stamp on the 30th anniversary celebration. Diet Coke is an icon... and I love an icon." Marc Jacobs

The cans are available nationwide from 25th February, 2013. The bottles are available at Selfridges from 12th March, 2013 and at M&S stores from April 12th while stocks last.


Marc Jacobs Named Diet Coke Creative Director



PARIS — “I think glamour and sex sells just about everything.”

So said Marc Jacobs, whose turn as Diet Coke’s new creative director for 2013 will have him stripping in a photo booth and posing in playful, pin-up-style ads.

Revealing the collaboration exclusively to WWD, Jacobs said he designed “whimsical, feminine” packaging for the soft-drink giant as it celebrates its 30th anniversary in Europe.

The first cans and bottles are slated to arrive next month in 11 European markets including the U.K., France, Benelux and Iceland. Jacobs had a hand in three cans, three bottles and three ad campaigns, each corresponding to a recent decade in fashion.

The creations, to be unveiled later this month, reference iconic looks and female empowerment from the Eighties, Nineties and Aughts, along with signature Jacobs motifs. He hinted they would incorporate fashion illustrations and repetitive prints, and confessed that he also tinkered with the Diet Coke logo.

“We wanted it to be colorful and fun,” the designer said.

Stéphane Sednaoui shot the campaigns — destined for print, outdoor and digital from mid-March — and Jacobs said he was excited to work with the photographer, having first met him at a PJ Harvey concert and long been a fan of his music videos for artists including Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Jacobs appears alongside Latvian model Ginta Lapina in the spots, which involve large pop bottles. “They’re quite cartoony,” Jacobs said.

A short film winks to Diet Coke’s popular “hunk” ads from the Nineties, recently reprised with a new commercial featuring a gardener who doffs his soda-drenched shirt and wrings it out. The film will make its debut on YouTube and Diet Coke’s Facebook page.

Famous for his rippling, tattoo-covered physique, Jacobs is depicted in the film causing a commotion in a photo booth, inviting three women to join him and share his Diet Coke moment.

“I still think it’s hysterical people want me to take my shirt off. You know, I’m going to be 50 in two months, so I guess I should be glad,” he said with a chuckle, musing, “It feels like the decade of me taking my shirt off.”

With this new project, Jacobs joins an illustrious group: Karl Lagerfeld was Diet Coke’s creative director in 2011, with madcap couturier Jean Paul Gaultier doing the honors in 2012.

“I have this thing about icons and legends,” the American designer said, listing Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and Louis Vuitton among them.

Jacobs is a longtime consumer of Diet Coke. In crunch time ahead of his signature show in New York on Monday, and his Vuitton show in Paris on March 6, Jacobs said he’s “pretty good about” keeping his soda intake to two or three a day. “Everything in moderation,” he teased.

Asked to account for the fact that even drink-makers turn to people like him, Jacobs replied, “It’s just another proof of people loving the power of fashion.…Designers have personalities, and their clothes have a voice and a vision, and people respond to it.”

Additional details of the “Sparkling Together for 30 Years” initiative are to be unveiled at a launch event in London on March 11, with Jacobs expected to attend. Introduced on the continent in 1983, Diet Coke has since been consumed by more than 2.7 billion people in Europe.

The curtain drops to reveal Marc Jacobs and his three Diet Coke bottles!

It’s the 30th anniversary of Diet Coke in Europe this year and on Monday this week we held an event to celebrate our partnership with designer Marc Jacobs as creative director. Despite the freezing weather, people travelled from across Europe to London to see the first reveal of the limited edition bottles and to hear Marc discuss his inspiration for the campaign. After months of planning, it’s an exciting moment for the Diet Coke team!

We started the event by showing a film that Marc stars in for Diet Coke. In the film, three women were invited to join him on a fashion journey through the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s – the three decades since the launch of Diet Coke. After a brief pause all eyes focused on the stage and after an exciting teaser video the curtain dropped to reveal three giant versions of the bottles Marc had created for us – each inspired by a different decade – alongside the designer himself.

After a Q&A session with Marc, where he discussed his inspiration for the designs, his views on different trends and his love of Diet Coke, we had a quick look online and saw already the first mentions appearing – it’s a great feeling to see positive feedback from Diet Coke fans. At that point we switched off the laptop and enjoyed the rest of the evening – a night of food, drinks and entertainment inspired by the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s!
See below for a video capturing the night's excitement.
