Tommy Hilfiger Welcomes Thierry Henry


New York and Amsterdam (February 2008) - On February 22nd, Tommy Hilfiger Europe will welcome Barcelona F.C.s iconic soccer star Thierry Henry to the Tommy Hilfiger Store on Paseo De Gracia, 15 in Barcelona. Thierry will be speaking about his charitable institution, THe One 4 All Foundation, and personally greet the winners of Tommy Hilfigers European 14 Hours in the Footsteps of Thierry Henry competition.

The competition, which kicked off at the end of September 2007, invited Tommy Hilfiger customers who have purchased the new Mens Underwear Collection in selected retailers across Europe, to share the 14 things they would most like to do in Barcelona a number that makes playful reference to Thierrys number 14 soccer shirt.

The winners of the competition will receive a once-in-a-lifetime tour of Barcelonas hottest destinations, as chosen by Thierry. They will also have a unique opportunity to personally meet Thierry at the Paseo De Gracia store.

I am delighted to have partnered with Tommy Hilfiger, said Thierry Henry. Its always great to have the chance to mix with the Barcelona fans who made me feel so welcome here and meet the competition winners.

My designs were influenced by the grace and charisma of Thierry Henry, a supreme athlete and an amazing man each garment in his Capsule Collection captures a little of his spirit, said Tommy Hilfiger. I am especially delighted that all profits from the Collection will be donated to Thierrys charitable institution, THe One 4 All Foundation, helping him in his fight against racism and social inequality.

Thierry Henry also became the face of a Tommy Hilfiger advertising campaign for Spring and Fall 07, which debuted in Europe, the United States, Asia and South America. Shot by renowned fashion photographer Nathaniel Goldberg, the campaign captured the relaxed elegance and debonair of the famed French forward and the Thierry Henry Capsule Collection he inspired a limited edition Collection of tailoring (suiting), menswear, formal footwear and underwear geared toward discerning, fashion-conscious men. All sales profits are donated to Thierrys charitable initiative, THe One 4 All Foundation.
