Tennis ace Rafael Nadal fronts Tommy Hilfiger’s latest campaign, stepping out in three Woolmark-certified suits crafted from Australian Merino wool.
AWI has partnered with Tommy Hilfiger for its latest THFLEX campaign, as part of the high-end brand’s Tailored Collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
Tennis ace Rafael Nadal returns as the face of the collection, who for three seasons has fronted the THFLEX campaign. The current campaign takes suiting to innovative new heights, unveiling three lightweight, highperformance, Woolmark-certified suits that are perfectly tailored to move and invites consumers to ace the everyday.
“Woolmark sets the gold standard for luxury wool and their innovative fabrics blend comfort and flexibility with the modern, sophisticated feel of Tommy Hilfiger Tailored,” said Tommy Hilfiger.
“We are honoured that Nadal continues to partner with our brand. He is an amazing athlete and the THFLEX suits perfectly reflect his modern and effortless approach to style.”
The THFLEX collection is both wrinkle-free and lightweight, naturally elastic and highly breathable, making it perfect for those on the go and celebrates Tommy Hilfiger’s long history of weaving athletic influences into their designs.
“We’re extremely pleased to partner with such an authentic brand like Tommy Hilfiger, and one which prides itself on quality and attention to detail,” said AWI CEO Stuart McCullough. “The three suits as part of the THFLEX collection perfectly represent the innate versatility of Merino wool, and marry together the traditional craft of fine tailoring with attributes more commonly found in performance garments such as the flexibility to move.”
The campaign had strong digital support, with Tommy Hilfiger running a series of ‘fun wool facts’ on its social media channels, including: “Crafted from finest Australian wool, THFLEX suits are certified by The Woolmark Company, which provides a mark of quality. Naturally elastic and crease resistant, wool is the original all-natural, high-performance fabric”.

With the support of strong global consumer recognition, Tommy Hilfiger has built an extensive distribution network in more than 115 countries and more than 1,600 retail stores throughout North America, Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region.
