The internationally renowned, record-setting tennis icon is the new global brand ambassador in the Tommy Hilfiger underwear, tailored and TH Bold campaigns, beginning Fall 2015.
“I’ve always admired Tommy Hilfiger’s cool, all-American designs which are sophisticated and easy to wear, and I’m excited to be partnering with the brand,” said Rafael Nadal, the 14-time Grand Slam winner.
The Tommy Hilfiger underwear collection features innovative designs that combine elevated details and precision fit with functionality. Premium quality fabrics guarantee exceptional wear, while styles reflect a polished aesthetic – all with a timeless, sophisticated appeal. An everyday essential, the Icon combines the iconic Tommy Hilfiger logo waistband with the relaxed comfort of cotton stretch. The Flex Micro is made with exceptionally soft, four-way stretch microfiber with a sleek sheen waistband.
Tommy Hilfiger Tailored integrates a sharp, sophisticated style with the brand’s American menswear heritage. From structured suiting to casual weekend wear, classics are modernized with precision fit, updated cuts, rich colors and luxe details. In both traditional tailoring and softer seasonal silhouettes, designs are executed with premium fabrics including superfine Italian merino wool and luxury cashmere yarns. The Rafael Nadal for Tommy Hilfiger Tailored suit is versatile, polished and refined, with a sartorial ease that’s effortlessly cool. Made from Italian navy wool flannel, the single-breasted silhouette features a straight shoulder and slim fit.
TH BOLD Strong and sporty, TH Bold is made for the rebel who plays to win. TH Bold celebrates the Tommy Hilfiger spirit of determination and confidence – a uniquely powerful blend. With a fusion of crisp citrus, herbal and spicy notes, the masculine fragrance speaks to the modern man who’s intensely passionate and has a desire to live boldly.
“Rafael Nadal has been a longtime personal friend and supporter of our brand, and I’m continually inspired by his dedication and passion for his sport,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “This exclusive partnership brings one of the greatest athletes of this generation into our Tommy family. Rafael embodies an effortless sense of style that exemplifies and reflects our brand spirit – he’s confident, fun and cool.”
