The campaign came alive in a series of impactful activations at the iconic LOTTE World Tower in Seoul, beginning with an outstanding drone show in the skyline of Seoul.

In a first for Travel Retail, LANCÔME lighted up an unique Chinese New Year Ceremony magically created by 300 drones flying in the night sky of Seoul.

As the music began, 300 drones floated up to form a series of choreographed festive icons, from a wishing lantern to a 2020 rat, from a gold 2020 illumination to a red LANCÔME logo. The cinematic light show also celebrated the 40th Anniversary of LOTTE Duty Free, ushering in an incredible new year ahead so as LANCÔME family constantly looks into opportunities to push the boundaries of innovation and deliver stunning retail experiences to all travelers.
