TORONTO, June 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC) announced today that international supermodel and actress Bar Refaeli will be the face of Nevada apparel beginning in Fall 2013.

"With the launch of our new Nevada brand denim designed by the Buffalo Group, we wanted someone that matched what the brand represents for women: fashionability, quality, and confidence", said Calvin McDonald, President and Chief Executive Officer, Sears Canada Inc. "We believe this relationship will demonstrate to Canadians that Sears is a destination for great fitting, affordable and fashionable apparel, especially in the 25 to 40 age demographic."
Refaeli recently completed the photo shoot for the Fall LOOK! report where she will appear on the cover, and will also be involved in a number of marketing and public relations activities as the face of Nevada. An in-store appearance in conjunction with the launch of the Fall LOOK! report is being planned, as is the release of a behind-the-scenes video featuring clips from the photo shoot for the LOOK! report which will be available on www.sears.ca.
