Spanish fashion brand Mango Man has signed the Atlético de Madrid footballer, Antoine Griezmann, as the new face for its Spring/Summer 2022 season.
Griezmann was the top scorer in the 2016 Euros, as well as in the 2018 Europa League, the 2018 World Cup, and the 2021 UEFA Nations League. He's known for his dress style, his" values and his authentic and relaxed essence" that make him the ideal ambassador for the firm, the company said in a media release.
“It is a real honour for me to be able to collaborate with a brand like Mango, which I have so much in common with. The style of the collections is very contemporary and they have extremely versatile and easy-to-wear pieces that adapt to each person's style. I believe that I connect a lot with the Mediterranean spirit of the brand and its values,” Griezmann said.
Griezmann is involved in numerous charitable causes, such as the NGO Un Rien C'est Tout, which supports projects that have a positive impact on people, by collaborating with associated organisations that operate in France. He is also sympathetic to other causes, such as LGTBIQ+ rights or gender equality in sport, among others.
Diego Sebastian, Mango’s communication, image and customer experience director, said: “The agreement signed with Griezmann is one step further in Mango’s commitment to strengthen its positioning by associating its brand with key figures from the worlds of fashion, culture and sport. A pioneer in Spain in such collaborations, Mango is constantly seeking profiles aligned with its values. Mango has previously counted on major talents in its campaigns, such as Gerard Piqué, Zinedine Zidane, Adrien Brody and Andrés Velencoso.”
