McDonald’s French ‘design collection’.

This is pretty bemusing, but hey it’s French and the illustrations are charming enough…

For the month of May, high-end Parisian store Colette will be selling a ‘design collection’ from McDonald’s which includes T-shirts, bags, scarves, iPhone covers and more. The products actually look really nice, but as a piece of brand messaging, it’s all quite confusing…

The collection is based on the fast food brand’s latest French advertising campaign by TBWA Paris, shown below, which features a set of elegant illustrations of McDonald’s products, including fries, Big Mac and an ice cream sundae. The new campaign is actually a reworking of last year’s Pictograms series of posters, but this time the images of the foodstuff are formed from lots of tiny emoticons, showing thumbs up, hearts or musical notes.
