Schutz Debuts Adriana Lima as New Global Brand Ambassador & Launches NYC Pop-Up Store

Schutz is kicking off summer 2018 with a bang with the opening of its New York pop-up store and the announcement of new brand ambassador, Adriana Lima.

The Brazilian brand tapped the supermodel — who was born in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil — for its new “Because” campaign, which is inspired by the South American country’s heritage as well as women who follow their gut instincts.

“To be part of Schutz’s new campaign is very personal as I’ve been a fan of the brand from a young age,” the 36-year-old Victoria’s Secret Angel shared. “I am proud to represent the confidence, charisma and independence for which Brazil is so known.”

Aligning with the company’s new branding concept, Schutz debuted its first NYC pop-up store at 121 Prince Street in Manhattan yesterday. The shop features standout technological capabilities, like RFID mirrors, a selection of summer-ready shoes and a sneaker customization station.
