Adrianna Papell Launches S’HUG®—The First of Its Kind Cardigan Wrap with Tunnel Sleeves That Never Slips or Falls
Exclusive innovative design combines 3 fashion staples: the cardigan, wrap and scarf into one versatile wardrobe essential
Unique tunnel sleeves provide today’s on-the-go woman the comfort and freedom she needs
New York, NY, March 28, 2022 – Adrianna Papell LLC, a leading brand in the occasion dress and bridal market, today announced the launch of S’HUG® -- the new versatile cardigan wrap available exclusively at Adrianna Papell. The exclusive patented style, designed with a touch of cashmere for added softness, takes inspiration from three essentials in every woman’s closet—the cardigan, wrap and scarf—and transforms them into the first easy-to-wear, one piece wonder that is versatile, seasonless and can be worn dozens of different ways.
The S’HUG® utilizes a patented tunnel sleeve design, which allows for a seamless transformation from wrap to cardigan to scarf, while keeping the S’HUG® comfortably hands free. When she is ready to slip out of the cardigan but still wants the comfort of a soft, cozy layer, she can simply drape the S’HUG® into a stylish scarf or wrap.
“Creating a simple, yet unique accessory that is also functional aligns with our mission of helping all women look and feel their best,” said Jaynee Berkman, President and Chief Creative Officer at Adrianna Papell. “Thanks to its integrated tunnel sleeves, wearing a light, stylish layer that stays in place without slipping or falling down as she transitions from one event to another—from the office to dinner, from a beach vacation to a party and even taking a selfie—is now possible. The S’HUG® is the versatile cardigan wrap she never knew she needed.”
Kiyeon Nam, the inventor of the S’HUG®, said she was inspired as a young mother and businesswoman who was constantly on the go to create the S’HUG® to help women feel stylish and empowered. “Like so many women today, I found it challenging to stay fashionable while working, taking care of the children and the household,” the inventor said. “The S’HUG® is a symbolic invention—it’s an encouraging hug from your inner self that every woman deserves.”
The S’HUG® is available in an extensive selection of colors and metallic detailing, with endless styling options that work 24/7 embracing those every day and special moments in a woman’s life. The assortment is fully size inclusive, spanning sizes XS/S; M/L; XL/XXL and fits up to size 20. The S’HUG® retails between $79-$119.
