M&S is calling on the UK to keep its cool this summer with the launch of its 2024 summer campaign as the retailer continues its journey to broaden appeal and elevate style perceptions.

The theme for the season is sun, sea, and a stylish wardrobe, playfully brought to life in a colourful campaign that serves up style inspiration across womenswear, menswear, and kidswear.

The hero TVC is set against a series of sunny holiday scenes with the cast looking effortlessly cool wearing pieces from M&S’ summer collection comprising summer co-ords, sequins skirts and embellished dresses for pool-to-evening glam, linen tailoring and swimwear in eye-catching fabrics, colourways, and silhouettes. All while pumping up giant inflatables without breaking a sweat. The ad is set to the infectious soundtrack of Technotronic’s feel good hit ‘Pump up the Jam’ and ends with the line ‘this summer, keep your cool’.

The campaign was developed by Mother, with the film directed by Tanu Muino, best known for creating music videos for Harry Styles, Lil Nas X, Cardi B, Sam Smith and, most recently, Dua Lipa.

Launching today (9 May) and running until 5 June, the campaign will feature across TV, VOD, radio, print, OOH (including a takeover at Oxford Circus underground station), digital display (including homepage takeovers), paid and organic social (including influencer activity), PR, ecom, CRM and instore, with window takeovers.
