Abercrombie & Fitch has tapped Romelu Lukaku, a soccer player for Manchester United, to be the newest face of its Fierce men’s fragrance. The Belgian athlete will be featured on the first of three limited-edition bottles that will be released this year. His bottle will be available in the London, Manchester and Brussels stores exclusively beginning today, and globally and online starting May 8. In addition to portraits, the bottle launch will also include a video, both of which were shot by Jack Pierson. Lukaku’s affiliation with A&F is part of the retailer’s Face Your Fierce campaign, which showcases men and women sharing stories of how they find strength in the face of adversity. Lukaku speaks of his passion for the game and being authentic. “As a professional athlete, I don’t often get to discuss aspects of inner strength and, in a game fueled by passion, inner strength is just as important as physical strength,” he said. “I am excited to share this campaign with my fans and hope they will in turn share their stories.” The packaging has been updated for the release and is yellow with white type. “Romelu is one of the most talented football players in the game, and his story of passion and focus is a powerful, positive message for our customer,” said Kristin Scott, president of global grands at Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “He is bringing our iconic fragrance to a new generation and we’re excited to showcase his story on a limited-edition bottle.” — Jean Palmieri
