HSN’s Heidi Daus Does Dragons For ‘Maleficent’

May 26, 2014

Yesterday the New York Daily News did a two-page spread called “Getting Into Character” in its style section. It was a pictorial of clothes, jewelry and other accessories inspired by movie, cartoon and comic book characters.

HSN got a shout-out because the layout had a photo of a Heidi Daus “Maleficent Dragon” necklace based on the movie, which comes out this week and stars Angelina Jolie.

(FYI for the rockhounds out there: We read that the movie’s creators had contact lens designed for Jolie that would mirror the shimmering hues of labradorite — its yellows, greens and blues.)

We looked up the necklace on HSN.com, and its price is now $330. Its official name is “Alluring Interlude.” Daus, of course, is fellow resident of Montclair, N.J.

Heidi Daus “Alluring Interlude” 3-Row Simulated Pearl Crystal Dragon-Designed Drop Necklace

Take a break from reality. This fantastical drop necklace looks like it came right out of a fairytale. Reminiscent of the costumes from Disney’s Maleficent, this crystal-covered design is wickedly glamorous.

Here’s the description:

Bold, flying dragon-designed drop covered in pavé-set, round multicolor crystals
Bezel-set pear and marquise-cut crystal accents
Textured metalwork scales
Tail extends upwards
Gray simulated pearl charm dangles at the bottom under a pavé crystal-encrusted 2-tiered cap
Rectangular end bars lined with pavé-set round crystals

HSN, Disney Unveil Partnership On ‘Maleficent,’ Other Films

April 10, 2014

HSN has cooked up another marketing partnership with Disney Studios, this time collaborating on “Maleficent,” “Cinderella” and “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” the home shopping network said Wednesday.

The three-film collaboration, which spans two years, “marks the first time that Disney Studios has enlisted an omni-channel retailer for a comprehensive long-term entertainment marketing alliance. HSN brings the spirit of these movies to life through bold, imaginative products from top designers and brands,” or so the press release said.

Before each film’s release, HSN will create content-driven retail events featuring assortments of products from the network’s fashion, jewelry, beauty and home categories that are inspired by or reminiscent of each of the three films.

The first HSN event will take place during the days leading up to the May 30 release of “Maleficent,” starring Angelina Jolie, followed by similar events for “The Hundred-Foot Journey” in August and “Cinderella” in spring next year.

“This long-term collaboration is a testament to the success of our entertainment integration strategy that infuses fun and drives heightened engagement across all of our shopping platforms while driving awareness for our marketing collaborators,” said our buddy Bill Brand, HSN’s Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer.

“We’re thrilled to expand our alliance with a world-class brand such as Disney to continually reinvent and re-energize shopping through interactive content and storytelling that captures the spirit of their films.”

Disney got its pitch in, too.

“HSN curates wonderful collections that speak to the essence of the story and build a real event around the release of our films,” said Don Gross, vice president of global promotions for Walt Disney Studios. “We’re excited to collaborate with them again and expand upon these engaging worlds, beginning with Maleficent.”

HSN’s 24-hour programming event for “Maleficent” launches on May 27, with a special preview of the collection on HSN.com starting May 7.

The collection will feature jewelry, fashion and beauty products from some of HSN’s top designers, including licensed products from Naeem Khan, Heidi Daus and Amika and additional collections from Giuliana Rancic, R.J. Graziano, Liz Lange, Jean Dousset, Margaret Rowe, Raven Kaufman and Diane Gilman.

Leading brands such as N by Natori, Clever Carriage, and others will also be a part of the collection as well. Following the May 27 event, HSN will air a series of “Countdown to Maleficent” primetime specials May 28 through May 30.

This initiative follows the successful results of HSN and Disney’s earlier film collaborations for “The Help” in 2010 and last year’s “Oz The Great and Powerful.”

HSN’s collaboration with “Oz The Great and Powerful” featured 400 products from 50 brands and resulted in the best sales of any HSN movie event to date with more than 100 product sell-outs.
