NEW YORK, April 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Hurley, a Bluestar Alliance brand, announces Mamiye Brothers as the new licensee for its women’s sportswear and activewear line.

Moore shared, “I am super excited about the opportunity to work closely with the new women’s sportswear and activewear licensee Mamiye on creating some pieces beyond swim. Outside of the water, I’m constantly on the go and need gear that will keep up. From training, to running errands, catching up with friends, walking the dogs or date night with my hubby, I’m looking forward to collaborating with the team to make something fun and functional for every occasion.”

Nathan Mamiye, Executive Vice President of Mamiye Brothers, shares “We are honored to embark on this exciting journey with Hurley Womenswear, a brand network whose energy, people, and culture are truly inspiring.
