Dwyane Wade Naked Brand Campaign

Wade Enterprises, LLC and Naked Brand Group, Inc. on June 18, 2015 announced a partnership between NBA Miami HEAT star Dwyane Wade and Naked, the innovative inner fashion and lifestyle brand. The 3-time NBA Champion, 11-time All Star and Olympic Gold Medalist will spearhead Naked's "Role Models" campaign, join the Company's Advisory Board and serve as Creative Director for a signature collection of innerwear set to launch in 2016. 

One of Wade's first initiatives with Naked will be to help launch Naked's "Role Models" campaign during summer 2015. "Naked is all about people writing their own story and being free to be themselves. We plan to build awareness and enthusiasm for Naked and our brand philosophy by sharing and celebrating the stories of men and women who live inspiring and authentic lives," says Joel Primus, Founder and President of Naked. "As a father, athlete and champion, whose personal motto is 'Make Your Own Way,' Dwyane is a true role model and the perfect partner for Naked."

In 2016, Naked and Wade will launch a Wade signature collection of innerwear for men and boys.  In his role as Creative Director for this product line, Wade will work closely with Carole Hochman and her design and development team to create a collection with broad global consumer appeal. "I am eager to work with Naked to design a collection that offers standout style and comfort," said Wade. 

Wade's collaboration and endorsement agreement with Naked, which includes license to Dwyane Wade's name, image and other intellectual property, is multi-year, worldwide and exclusive in the category of Innerwear (underwear, undershirts, loungewear, sleepwear and robes). 

As part of this collaboration, Wade will also join Naked's advisory board, specifically focusing on helping Naked build brand awareness and achieve business goals. In this capacity, Wade has agreed to share his expertise and breadth of experience as it pertains to the growth of the Company.

Naked was founded on one basic desire, to create a new standard for how products worn close to the skin fit, feel and function.  Naked has a strong and growing retail footprint for its innovative and luxurious men's innerwear products in some of the best online and department stores in North America. In 2014, renowned designer and sleepwear pioneer, Carole Hochman, joined Naked as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Creative Officer and Chairwoman with the goal of growing Naked into a global lifestyle brand. Naked is now headquartered in New York City, has expanded its men's collections and has developed amazing women's intimate apparel, sleepwear and loungewear collections – the kind of extraordinary products for which Carole Hochman has been admired for years. The first of these women's collections will be available online and at retail during 2015. In the future, Naked plans to expand into other apparel and product categories that can exemplify the mission of the brand, such as activewear, swimwear, sportswear and more.

Dwyane Wade is a three-time NBA Champion (2006, 2012, 2013) and eleven-time All-Star selection with the Miami HEAT. In 2006, three years after first joining the HEAT as the No. 5 overall Draft pick, he led the team to Miami's first-ever NBA Championship and was named MVP of the Finals. In 2012 and 2013, Dwyane won his second and third NBA Championships. In 2004, he created the Wade's World Foundation, which provides support to various educational, health and family service programs, in particular those that benefit underserved communities in Miami and his hometown of Chicago. In 2011, Wade was appointed to President Obama's Fatherhood Task Force. In September 2012, he became a New York Times Best-Selling author, with the release of his first book, A FATHER FIRST: How My Life Became Bigger than Basketball. Dwyane has partnerships with Hublot, Stance, The Tie Bar, Gatorade, MISSION Athletecare, Pepperidge Farm, The Collection, and serves as Chief Brand Officer for Li-Ning.
