TOMMY HILFIGER TRANSFORMS SALES EXPERIENCE WITH LAUNCH OF INNOVATIVE DIGITAL SHOWROOM

The concept pioneers a new digital platform that revolutionizes the traditional sales experience.

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS (January 2015) – Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], is pleased to announce the launch of an innovative digital sales showroom, located at its global headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The digital showroom revolutionizes the sales experience for retailers by offering them a more engaging and seamless buying approach. The interactive system blends collection information, sales tools and brand content in one seamless touchscreen interface.

“Our digital showroom revolutionizes the buying and selling journey for our retail customers and internal sales teams,” said Daniel Grieder, CEO, Tommy Hilfiger. “We are passionate about providing our clients with the best service, experience and quality. Our new digital showroom concept completely reimagines the traditional buying approach and establishes a new fashion industry benchmark for business to business sales. The concept also supports our ongoing focus on efficiency and will significantly streamline and enhance the Tommy Hilfiger sales experience.”

“Our unique digital showroom concept is a juxtaposition of craft and innovation,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “The platform reflects values which are at the heart of our brand DNA: entrepreneurial, inspirational, surprising, inclusive and accessible. We believe this is the sales experience of the future and look forward to working with our retail partners in this exciting new setup.”

The centerpiece of the digital showroom is an interactive half-meter by one-meter touchscreen table set in a sleek walnut frame, which connects to a four-meter-high wall-to-wall grid of ultra-high-definition 4K screens. Customers can digitally view every item in the Tommy Hilfiger sportswear and Hilfiger Denim seasonal collections and create custom orders with all product categories laid out across a single screen. They can view head-to-toe key looks, zoom in with incredible detail to see unique design features, and click on a garment for specific information such as color offerings and size ranges.

The product selection and ordering experience builds on a traditional sales approach, reimagined through the digitalized system that streamlines and simplifies the process. The interactive interface allows for in-depth discussions on styling, merchandising and deliveries that are tailored to each client. Furthermore, by complementing traditional sales tools with an array of brand information, the digital showroom effectively immerses the customer in the complete Tommy Hilfiger brand experience.

The digital showroom concept also supports Tommy Hilfiger’s ongoing sustainability mission, as it reduces sample production, eliminates the need for printed order forms, and diminishes the ecological impacts of shipping. In turn, the environmental impacts of sample creation are significantly reduced, from the supply chain and manufacturing to packaging and international shipping.

Tommy Hilfiger will launch its digital showroom on January 21, 2015, in Amsterdam with key international wholesale partners, and the company is establishing a global roll-out plan to expand the concept into markets worldwide.

Brisbane Ball Boy Proves To Be “Wang” For China At AFC Asian Football Cup

Story: 20 January 2015, Brisbane Queensland, Australia. As part of the Asian Football Cup currently underway in Australia, ball boy Stephen White, 12, has been hailed a lucky charm for China’s Asian Cup team after giving their goalkeeper, Wang Dalei a match-winning tip for the game against Saudi Arabia during the penalty kick.

Stephen White and Wang Dalei’s story has been making world headlines in newspapers and websites.

It is no coincidence that Dalei’s surname (Wang) translates to the Chinese meaning of “lucky and prosperous”.

For Wang Dalei the AFC Asian Cup in Australia, has already become a tournament the China goalkeeper is never likely to forget. China’s opening match against Saudi Arabia was on Wang’s 26th birthday and the goalkeeper saved a second-half penalty from Saudi striker Naif Hazazi with the sides deadlocked.

Before Hazazi stepped up, Wang took an unusual approach of consulting the ballboy behind his goal, asking him which way to dive for the spot-kick. After the final whistle had blown, Wang made a point of going over to White and embracing the youngster, calling him his “lucky charm”.

Stephen White said, “It feels incredible and pretty interesting that I’ve been named their lucky charm”.

Stephen’s advice to the goalkeeper has not only paved the way for China to play against Australia in the quarter final, but has also brought the two sporting nations closer together and helped to build even stronger relations between the two countries.

In the spirit of friendship and sportsmanship, Stephen White invited our Chinese visitors to see some of Queensland and visit the Great Barrier Reef and our beautiful beaches.

Stephen said if he could invite the Chinese football team to Queensland he would take them to Hamilton Island and the Great Barrier Reef and also show them the sand dunes on Stradbroke Island just of the coast from Brisbane.

For the upcoming quarter final match between Australia and China Stephen said, “My heart says Australia but my gut says China and I’m going to go for the goalkeepers at the game”

Story: In a world first, Swiss tennis legend and current World No. 2 Roger Federer today challenged Australian great Lleyton Hewitt to a high-impact game of tennis at the iconic Sydney Opera House, for the exclusive global launch of Fast4 in Sydney.
With the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a backdrop, Federer and Hewitt took tennis to a new level and created history when they played a friendly Fast4 match on the Northern Boardwalk at the Sydney Opera House. The tennis legends are the first in the world to exchange rallies at the unique location, with the new format of tennis being seen today for the first time around the world.Fast4 is an innovative, new format of tennis developed by Tennis Australia.
It is designed to offer a faster game. There are four rule variations from traditional tennis: no advantage scoring, no lets, a tiebreaker to be played at three games all, with the first player to win four games winning the set.
Destination NSW CEO Sandra Chipchase said it was easy to see why Sydney was picked as the global launch city for the new fast format of tennis.”I’m delighted that the global launch of Fast4 was unveiled exclusively in Sydney, the home of world class sport,” Ms Chipchase said.
“Sydney is home to some of the leading sports events in the world, attracting some of the world’s biggest names in sport. We’re delighted to welcome Federer back to our shores for this exclusive, global premier of the next best thing in the sporting world”.
“Sydney is proud to be part of this historic event, celebrating the launch of the shortened version of the game.”
Great friends off the court, Federer and Hewitt have one of the most enduring rivalries in tennis, along with a great mutual respect.
The pair, both aged 33, have faced off 27 times since 1999, with Federer winning 18 of those matches.Tonight, in another world first, Federer will face off in a best-of-five sets match against Hewitt at the Qantas Credit Union Arena to showcase the new format of tennis.
