Bollywood Heartthrob and actor, Varun Dhawan was quite ignorant that his innocent suggestion to brand Lux Cozi that he endorses will have such a lasting impact on the team. So much so, that the team went back to their think tank and came up with a very innovative product – a scented vest!
Yes, a vest that feels comfortable and now smells good too. In India, the tropical climate, and the long commutes people choose to work every day aggravate the problem of excessive sweating. Besides fulfilling the promise of comfort, these scented vests are designed to help people stay fresh even after a long day at work. All this, so India looks good, feels good and smells good!
The other unique feature of these vests is the fact that they retain their fragrance even after continued washes so that people can sweat it out in style. An ad campaign, comprising two TV spots, radio spots and print campaign featuring Varun Dhawan will soon be launched to promote the product.
LUX Industries Limited, the company behind the brand is known for its innovative and customer-demand driven product offerings, manufacturing more than 100 products across 14 major brands comprising a complete range of innerwear for men, women, and children, has yet again created a buzz in the innerwear category of the country
With the new range of vests, Lux Cozi is taking a phenomenal leap in creating value-based products keeping in mind the necessity and aspirational style quotient of India.
Actor Varun Dhawan was joined by Ashok Todi, Chairman, Lux Industries Ltd., Pradip Todi, Managing Director, Lux Industries Ltd. and Navin Todi, Senior Vice President, Lux Industries Ltd.
