CASE STUDY / Lagostina


In Summer 2018, 5W was tasked with activating a strategic product launch for Lagostina in partnership with celebrity chef, Giada De Laurentiis. In addition to launching the product, the brand's primary objective was to embrace the brand's Italian heritage by owning the idea of "Sunday Dinner" to tell the brand story.


5W developed and executed a three-prong strategy - partnership, storytelling, and engage - to ensure that the brand and its campaign reached maximum visibility.
For the partnership, 5W cemented an exclusive partnership with celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis to effectively link the brand with its Italian heritage and the idea of "Sunday Dinners". 5W executed storytelling components by partnering with influencers to drive consumer awareness and purchase leading up to the launch.
5W maximized these partnerships by engaging the media and influencers to take part in "Sunday Dinner," resulting in real time coverage and engagement.
