Reese Witherspoon in Leading Role for Lindex’ New Concept
When Lindex presents its new communications concept, the Oscar winning and internationally renowned actress Reese Witherspoon will star in the leading role.
Reese Witherspoon is truly the best possible model for the launch of our new concept – Get the Look. She also personifies the Lindex brand in a good way. She is positive, warm and full of energy and she has a fantastic ability to combine a carefree style with Hollywood glamour. Reese presents this autumn’s fashion collection, inspired from California, perfectly, says Johan Hallin, Director of Concept & Marketing at Lindex.
Lindex’ new communication concept Get the Look will inspire fashion-conscious women with an affordable and complete look. By showing how to style the latest trends with favourites from the basic garments, Lindex wants to give its customers a world-class fashion experience.
The Lindex autumn collection is inspired by the 70’s feminine and cool style in which different patterns and materials are mixed. Denim with knitted garments, particularly layer-on-layer, are important features of this autumn’s trendy and carefree California look.
– “I have always loved denim and knitted garments that can be mixed and matched. Lindex’ fashion suits my style perfectly and I am very pleased to be a model for the new collection,” says Reese Witherspoon.

Let’s turn the compass towards the American west coast and head for sunny California. The big autumn campaign is called California Denim and in the leading role we see the Oscar winning and internationally famous actress Reese Witherspoon. Positive, warm and full of energy Reese is perfect for a collection which combines a relaxed style with Hollywood glamour.
“I have always loved denim and knitted garments which can be mixed and matched. Lindex’ fashion suits my style perfectly and I am very pleased to be a model for the new collection”, says Reese Witherspoon.
Our autumn collection is inspired by the seventies; relaxed and feminine. Get the look by styling layer-on layer, put on a pair of lovely denim with a 70’s cut and add knitted tops in rich autumn colours. The collection can be found in our stores and on Shop Online from August 22.
Los Angeles was the location for our campaign California Denim. We followed the team during one day of production. In a studio set in Hollywood Hills we enter a dark stage door and follow a windy staircase to finally reach the room where it all took place. Cables, film cameras, make-up tables, and a myriad of people busying around is what meets us at first glance. From the stereo we can hear a new version of the classic seventies song Gimme Some Lovin’. It’s upbeat and captivating. And there on center stage, as she is so used to, stands the American actress, Reese Witherspoon. It’s almost as if we are blinded, or should we say a little bit star struck, by her. Her blinding smile makes the whole room lit up and the atmosphere is warm and friendly. Altough Reese is larger than life in a way, she also feels like the girls next door. Positive, warm and full of energy she is the perfect model for Lindex.
The camera flashes and with every frame she gives the photographer that smile we all know her for. She is a natural in front of the camera and she really embodies the California Denim look. We got the opportunity to sit down with her and got a few tips and insights.
