New York, NY – August 1, 2022 – Stella Artois, together with basketball star and fashion icon Kyle Kuzma and luxury fashion brand POTR by Yoshida & Co., announced the launch of their newest fashion program “Secure The Bag.” The fully integrated campaign features digital content across Stella’s platforms, in-store signage featuring Kuzma in retailers nationwide and custom limited-edition “Secure The Bag” 25 oz. cans, featuring a unique QR code digitized pattern.
“It’s been great working with Stella on this collaboration,” said Kyle Kuzma, “Fashion has always been a key part of my identity and how I express myself, and it’s been exciting to partner with a brand that understands the importance of savoring life in style. I’m looking forward to sharing the shopping experience with the lucky winner this fall.”
To kick-off the campaign, Stella is launching a nationwide sweepstakes to give fans the chance to win an exclusive limited-edition version of the POTR’s “Flex 2 Way Helmet” Tote Bag and one lucky grand prize fan will have the opportunity to go on a $10,000 fashion shopping spree with Kuzma himself.

We’re thrilled to work with him as we continue to establish ourselves within the fashion industry.”
