NADAL FOR TOMMY

GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE -

Rafael Nadal has been named the face – and more im­por­tantly, the body – of Tommy Hil­fger un­der­wear, tai­lor­ing and the new ‘TH Bold’ fra­grance. While news broke of the Spa­niard’s sign­ing late last year, this is an ex­clu­sive frst look at some be­hind-the-scenes shots from the cam­paign. The un­der­wear boasts a fresh take on clas­sic styles, with up­dated fts and fab­rics. Tommy Hil­fger Tai­lored is a suit­ing col­lec­tion that draws on the brand’s Amer­i­can her­itage, with a mod­ern ft, rich colours and luxe de­tails. Then there’s the new scent ‘TH Bold’, a fu­sion of cit­rus, herbal and spicy notes. Born in Mana­cor on the is­land of Mal­lorca, 29-year-old Nadal is one of the most ac­com­plished ten­nis play­ers of all time. He’s won a to­tal of 14 grand slams – as well as an Olympic gold medal – with a record nine of those com­ing at the French Open. And Tommy Hil­fger, founded in 1985, to­day stands as one of the most suc­cess­ful fash­ion, fra­grance and de­sign brands on the planet. Talk about a good match. tommy.com James Bay first caught our at­ten­tion af­ter per­form­ing at the Burberry run­way show last year.
