I just got back from NYC after spending a few days there for the Tommy Hilfiger x Rafael Nadal tournament event. I have to tell you guys all about it! The event celebrated the launch of Rafael Nadal’s new underwear and fragrance line in partnership with Tommy. Pretty perfect match if you ask me! 😉 When I arrived to New York, I got to visit the Tommy Hilfiger store on 5th and pick a cute outfit for the tennis tournament. There were so many cute things that I finally narrowed it down to three styles which you guys helped me decide on IG which one to wear!
Later that night, I met up with the other influencers for a game of table tennis at Spin NYC (Tommy style of course!) Afterwards we headed to a really nice intimate dinner at Sixty Soho. I loved the cute name plates they made with tennis balls. So creative! The food was also really great.
On the day of the event, it was such a beautiful day even though the sun was beaming hot! We got to take a bunch of pictures before the event started which was a lot of fun.
It felt like I was at an actually tennis match.The idea behind the match was “tennis with a twist”, which included celebrities and models such as Chanel Iman, Hannah Davis, Arthur Kurkov and many more who went head-to-head with the tennis champ himself in a strip tennis game. That’s right I said strip!!!
Everyone playing was wearing Tommy tennis outfits that seriously made me want to be a tennis player one day. The event’s commentators were Jane Lynch and Lake Bell who did a phenomenal job keeping the crowd entertained. Nadal played in his suit the entire time, but everyone was hoping he would have to strip down to his undies! That obviously didn’t happen because he beat everyone, but he did take his shirt off. 😉
I can’t forget to mention my role for the event! I got to catch all of the action LIVE by taking over the Tommy Hilfiger Periscope account. Best job ever!? If you’re not familiar with Periscope – it’s a live streaming app that lets you connect and interact with audiences in any moment. The highlight for me was seeing Nadal come over after walking the red carpet and waving hello to all of his fans on Periscope! It was the cutest thing ever. I almost dropped the phone.
After the event, my fellow influencers and I joined the Tommy team indoors for some air conditioning and good food at Bryant Park Grill. It was really nice getting to unwind and hang out with everyone before we said our goodbyes. Here’s what I wore – thanks for all your help guys!
Special thanks to the hardworking gals on the Tommy team. Probably one of the most hard working teams I’ve ever met. Love Sandra, Francesca, and Andrea… you guys made this all possible so thank you for the experience!
Can’t wait to see what Tommy has up his sleeves next…. 😉
