Famed mall clothier Abercrombie & Fitch was the “go-to” clothing destination for so many of us in our twenties. Along with their ultra risqué (for the times) ad campaigns, A&F defined a style and an era for many of us (and who didn’t love those ultra cheeky, play on word heavy t-shirts)?
The times, the culture and the definition of what truly is “beautiful” have changed though, and Abercrombie & Fitch have wisely decided to adapt their ad campaign to reflect that. Earlier this week, Abercrombie & Fitch premiered their new campaign, appropriately titled “Face Your Fierce”.
Sports figures like soccer champ Megan Rapinoe and NBA star Kyle Kuzma are included in the campaign, and transgender model and dancer Leyna Bloom, Olympian Gus Kenworthy and Paralympian Scout Bassett are also featured prominently, crafting a more diversified and varying group of models that truly reflect today’s society.
The Fierce Family featured in this campaign will be appearing in various digital campaigns and advertisements throughout the year, and a new limited edition Fierce bottle of Abercrombie & Fitch’s cologne will be released later this year.
