Hudson Jeans announces two-year partnership with professional basketball player Tyler Herro
LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hudson Jeans, a leading premium denim lifestyle brand, today announced a new ambassador partnership. Professional basketball player Tyler Herro, the first professional athlete to officially work with the brand, has signed a two-year ambassadorship with Hudson Jeans that will include a denim collaboration.
Herro will appear in the brand’s advertising and marketing materials and launch a capsule collection in March 2022, to kick off the brand’s 20th anniversary. As the youngest player to ever start in a playoff finals game, Herro is an exciting partner for Hudson Jeans with a huge domestic and international fan base, including 2.3 million Instagram followers.
“Tyler is a dynamic young player who has a unique and fashionable personal style. Hudson Jeans has long been a favorite denim brand for athletes, and we are thrilled to have him as our brand ambassador. He has been a great collaborator on his capsule collection; he knew exactly what he was looking to create,” said Suzy Biszantz, Group President of Centric Brands, Men and Women.
“I’m really excited to represent Hudson Jeans and to work with the team to launch this collection,” said Herro. “Fans know that I love denim and have a really distinct style. This partnership gave me the opportunity to bring my vision to life. I really enjoyed the creative process and look forward to that everyone buys and wears the pieces that I designed.
Herro’s capsule will feature three new fits out of a total of seven new washes, including some offered in longer inseams aimed at athletes and taller body types. The silhouettes will include both straight legs and a stacked skinny, a personal favorite of Herro. Collection prices range from $255 to $275.
The capsule collection will be available at major national retailers, including Neiman Marcus, as well as online at Hudsonjeans.com.
