HANES INVITES WOMEN TO JOIN CANDID COLOR-FILLED INTIMATES CONVERSATION

America’s No. 1 Apparel Brand Encourages Women to Reveal Their “Undercover Color” As Part of its New Advertising Campaign and Product Launch

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., August 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Hanes , America’s No.1 Apparel Brand, is unveiling a brighter, more colorful look this summer. Hanes has launched panties, bras and tees featuring on-trend patterns and vibrant hues that reflect Hanes’ ongoing color-filled conversations with millennial women around the country. The brand’s deep understanding of women’s changing taste towards more contemporary styles and shades helped to inspire the new color infusion in Hanes’ most recent line of intimates and tees. In celebration of their fun and fresh fashions, Hanes is inviting women to join a candid conversation by revealing what color underwear they’re wearing — because a women’s “Undercover Color” is an important reflection of her personality and mood from day to day.

The Undercover Color campaign invites women to dish on their color of choice for their intimates by leveraging Twitter as the primary vehicle for this fun and engaging dialogue. Using the dedicated #undercovercolor hashtag, fans are invited to playfully reveal what color intimates they are donning, which will result in the unveiling of underwear color trends by location on the site’s campaign hub, www.undercovercolor.com

Hanes has always been known for comfort and quality,” said Sidney Falken, Chief Branding Officer, Hanes. “The Undercover Color campaign gives us a fun way to let women know about all the great fits and vibrant colors we now offer.”

Color Trends
Hanes is launching the Undercover Color discussion on Twitter by inviting women across the country to answer a simple question: “What color underwear are you wearing?” The campaign’s dedicated hub, UndercoverColor.com, showcases underwear color trends by region. Each week, through August 30, 2013, Hanes will give away stylish fashion finds, curated by popular style blogger Gala Darling. To participate, fans can simply tweet and share one of the playful tiles from the site, like:

My mom warned me about girls who wear red panties. I didn’t listen. #UndercoverColor Red
