January 26, 2022
LOS ANGELES, CA (January 26, 2022) – Hudson Jeans, a leading premium denim lifestyle brand, announced a new ambassador partnership today. Professional basketball player Tyler Herro, the first professional athlete to officially work with the brand, signed a two-year ambassadorship with Hudson Jeans which will include a denim collaboration.
Herro will appear in the brand’s advertising and marketing collateral and will 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 an expansive national and international fanbase, including 2.3 million followers on Instagram.
“Tyler is a dynamic young player who has a unique, trend-right personal style. Hudson Jeans has long been a favored denim brand with athletes, and we are thrilled to have him as a brand ambassador. He’s been a great collaborator on his capsule collection; he knew exactly what he was looking to create,” said Suzy Biszantz, Centric Brands Group President, Men’s & Women’s.
“I’m really excited to be representing Hudson Jeans and collaborating with the team to launch this collection,” said Herro. “Fans know that I love denim and have a really distinct style. This partnership has given me the opportunity to bring my vision to life. I’ve really enjoyed the creative process, and I can’t wait for everyone to shop and wear the pieces I have designed.”
Herro’s capsule will include three new fits in a total of seven new washes with some offered in longer inseams targeted toward athletes and taller body types. The silhouettes will include both straight legs and a stacked skinny, a personal favorite of Herro’s. Prices for the collection range from $255 – $275.
The capsule collection will be available at leading national retailers including Neiman Marcus as well as online at Hudsonjeans.com.
