NEW YORK AND AMSTERDAM (January 21, 2014) – The Tommy Hilfiger Group, which is wholly owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], announces its Spring 2014 global advertising campaign west coasts. Featuring The Hilfiger – the beloved all-American family at the heart of the brand’s marketing strategy – the new campaign takes the irreverent group of eclectic characters to the beaches of Malibu as The Hilfiger establish a preppy outpost on the Pacific. And what’s prep on a California beach is a whole new story. Wave-washed shorts, chambray-soft shirts, easy blazers, all in wet sea glass colors. Scuba chic takes a dive with neoprene bonded leather. So jump in the dune buggy, prepare for sand in your chinos, color blocks and sunblock, groggily sunglasses and Sea Breezes at sunset.

“This season we took The Hilfiger back to one of my earliest inspirations: the West Coast,” said

Tommy Hilfiger. “In the Spring 2014 Collection, we looked at the preppy classics that we have loved throughout the years, and reinvented them with a modern, ‘West Coast’ spirit in mind. This campaign takes me back to summers I spent in California early in my career – in a uniquely Hilfiger way. I love taking the Hilfiger to different iconic location each season.”

The Hilfiger campaign is the ultimate personification of the preppy heritage and irreverent spirit of the Tommy Hilfiger brand. The campaign is photographed by Craig McDean, styled by Karl Templer and creatively directed by Trey Laird of Laird & Partners.

For Spring 2014, the Tommy Hilfiger advertising campaign includes more video content than any previous season.

“With The Hilfiger campaign, we continue to engage our audience across a wide range of media platforms,” said Avery Baker, Chief Marketing Officer of the Tommy Hilfiger Group. “The global print and outdoor campaign is complemented by a digital strategy that brings the unique spirit of The Hilfiger to life in a multi-dimensional way. In Spring 2014, shoppable videos capture the individuality of various family members’ personal attitude and style, and illustrate the youthful irreverence that has long been at the heart of the Tommy Hilfiger brand. The Hilfiger campaign continues to celebrate the international outlook of preppy style in a way only Tommy Hilfiger has achieved.”

"Seeing the entire Hilfiger gang spilling out of vintage dune buggies was truly a sight to behold!” said Trey Laird, Laird + Partners Chief Executive and Creative Officer. “With dozens of surfboards, everyone in shades, a wetsuit-clad 11 year old, with zinc, and a loose attitude. The pure simplicity of the ultimate Malibu beach was the perfect backdrop for the family's Spring Break in the sun."

Photographed in Paradise Cove, Malibu with hair by Eugene Souleiman, and makeup by Francelle Daly-Poiblanc, the campaign features a similar cast of eclectic characters from past campaigns: Arthur Kulkov, Tidou M'Baye, Max Rogers, RJ King, Marlon Texeira, Viggo Jonassen, Miles McMillan, Bernard Fouquet, Toni Garrn, Julia Hafstrom, Tian Yi, Cora Emmanuel, Lea Sorenson, Chloe Blackshire and two basset hounds named Morgan IV and V.
