Friday, November 28, 2014
H&M officially opens its third massive store in the country in SM Makati on Nov. 28, 2014. The Swedish fashion giant brought in tennis pro Tomas Berdych, who currently ranks 7th in the world and is the only top-ranked player who sports H&M on court.
Berdych is in town this month for the International Premier Tennis League (Nov. 28-30), which also includes Andy Murray, Maria Sharapova, Serena Williams, and Novak Djokovic in the player line-up. “I’m very excited about the IPTL because it’s a unique format,” says Tomas. “The crowd is gonna see great tennis and players. The format and the rules give them something different, something they won’t see in another tournament. We’re gonna have an interesting time.”
How does Tomas feel about fusing fashion and sport? “That’s what I like most about my H&M collection,” says Tomas. “I think fashion is getting more and more important in the tennis world. Every player has his own personality.”
The Tomas Berdych collection is available at H&M SM Makati, along with other sportswear, H&M Home, and the complete selection of apparel and accessories for women, men, teenagers and children, and the Holiday collection.
Opening day shoppers got to enjoy exclusive deals and freebies like umbrellas, tote bags, and gift cards—worth P5,000 to the first in line.
