Quote from the CEO

“During a two-week period in August we created the highest measured PR value generated to date by a single campaign. The Signature tennis collection and fashion show received a lot of attention, including in Vogue magazine. After the campaign, the singer Lady Gaga did a yoga session wearing our Clara High Waist Tights and Björn Borg Solid Triangle Bra, which she immortalized in an Instagram post to her 26 million followers,” commented CEO Henrik Bunge.
