As an extension of the brand philosophy, New Era launches Fit For Glory campaign again, this year centering on the concept of “Staying True”, to encourage people not to give up when difficult situation arises, let your original aspiration be the fuel that pushes you forward, readjust when needed to set out again towards the goal, strive for the best until glory is yours. To present the Fit For Glory campaign and new looks for Fall/Winter, New Era has once again invited Alton Wong from popular local boy-band MIRROR and Poki Ng from ERROR for a video campaign and photoshoot, except this year New Era also sends a fresh invitation to Frankie Chan - another member of MIRROR - to join the duo in sharing their personal experience in pursuing dreams while giving a 2023 Fall/Winter collection preview.
Frankie, Alton, Poki – the Trio with Undying Passion
Popular boy band members, Frankie Chan@MIRROR, Alton Wong@MIRROR and Poki@ERROR, work together in a group for the first time. The trio put on a series of American street fashion looks, share their original aspirations, and talk about glorious moments after they’ve attained their goals. “My original aspiration is to dance to my heart’s content on stage, to complete a personal performance, this gives me great satisfaction that no word can describe,” Alton says cheerfully. The trio share the same goal, all three of them strive towards becoming professional performers that shine brightly on stage. With their prominent influence, they wish to encourage other dreamers with their work and experience. Frankie gives a heartfelt sharing on his journey, “before making a name in the career, I took up many different types of work on top of being a dancer. It was a long way, but I have eventually made it to the stage, to show everyone the most confident version of Frankie Chan. I hope my experience motivates you to keep going, and remain true to your original aspiration.” Even in challenging times, the three manage to stay true to themselves, Poki comments from experience, “I treat every day like a new beginning, there is no escape when there is difficulty, brace yourself every day to be better than you were the day before.” Another example of how attitude is a determining factor of success.
“Glory” stands for achievements and proud moments in life, but the trio hold different interpretations and sentiments. To Alton, “Glory” stems from the ability to roam freely as your heart desires, “To be able to present the complete version of self, a lot of compromise has to be made prior to that. My desired “Glory” is to get pass this stage, and to reveal my true self to the audience without holding back.” For Frankie and Poki, there is nothing that could make them prouder than recognition and respect, being a source of inspiration pushes them to work harder, “One life inspiring another, to motivate others through self-betterment is honourable.”
Frankie, Alton and Poki are rapidly evolving in the entertainment industry, besides singing and dancing, they are also seen on movies, TV dramas, and developing their own brands. Inspirational role models of their own rights, none mention material goods or fame when commenting on glorious moments of life, rather, they view proud moments of “Glory” as the ability to express themselves authentically on stage, to gain support and approval from people around them, and to influence others with their experience. Their interpretation of “Glory” aligns with the brand’s Fit For Glory philosophy.
