Hugo Boss partners with SapientNitro for Digital services

 The well known German premium fashion brand Hugo Boss has appointed SapientNitro, part of the Publicis.Sapient platform, as its new digital lead agency. The aim is to enhance the omnichannel experience for consumers and redefine how content and commerce can be merged across channels.

Commenting on this announcement, Gerd von Podewils, Senior Vice President Global Communication, Hugo Boss said, “With SapientNitro, we have appointed a partner that represents our global approach to creating compelling brand experiences, driven by state-of-the-art technology. The ongoing digital revolution confirms our decision to transform from a vertically integrated retailer to a data- and experience-driven fashion brand, the multiple paths to purchase of today’s customer.”

At the core of the partnership, SapientNitro will run the brand’s digital platforms, including the primary website hugoboss.com.

“The appointment of SapientNitro as Hugo Boss’ digital agency is an important moment for both partners. What was separated before – e-commerce and an exciting brand experience – will join forces in a unique and highly personalized hub page concept in the future. We will bring the brand's strong, global, physical presence far closer to the increasing number of customers who experience fashion digitally,” added Nigel Vaz, Global Chief Strategy Officer and SVP Europe at SapientNitro
