Shifting the Focus from Celebrity Endorsements to Talented Athletes
PRADA Kickstarts Partnership with China’s Women’s National Football Team
PRADA recently announced a groundbreaking partnership with the Women’s National Football Team of China, reinforcing its commitment to backing young, talented athletes and celebrating sportsmanship. According to PRADA’s official statement, the fashion giant will be outfitting the 23-team player roster and their representatives during their travel and official event appearances, lending them a sleek and modern image off the field. Te official uniform of China’s Women’s National Football Team will consist of a PRADA black blazer, matching trousers, a crisp shirt, and chic PRADA loafers.
PRADA’s New Game Plan: Fostering Closer Ties with the Sports World
The collaboration with China’s Women’s National Football Team marks PRADA’s latest endeavor to foster stronger connections with the sports world and promote a healthy brand image. Earlier in May this year, PRADA signed on Chinese basketball player Yang Shuyu as the brand’s latest ambassador, sporting PRADA’s latest men’s collection in a series of promotional photoshoots and short films.
An Enlightened Strategy: From Celebrity Endorsements to Athlete Partnerships
By initiating deep collaborations with Chinese athletes, PRADA is deftly moving away from the reliance on celebrity sponsorships — a strategy that seems to be wisely in tune with the current times. This fresh approach not only underlines the brand’s support for athleticism and youthful talent, but also reflects a new vision of fashion, interwoven with the dynamism and spirit of sports.
