American Eagle Outfitters "portraits" by Translation

American Eagle Outfitters, the clothes retailer, has released a campaign that makes a virtue of its wide range of styles and sizes by claiming it is a fightback against other brands' narrow interpretation of beauty.

Translation created the campaign, which will run nationwide in the US and also includes press and digital work. The campaign tagline is: "My imperfections make the perfect me."
