CFDA: Legendary Tommy Hilfiger has tapped the revered British talent Richard Quinn for a one-of-a-kind capsule collection that blends the two brands together seamlessly. The collection gives Hilfiger, one of the most iconic names in American fashion, a shot of Quinn’s signature style. Dramatic patterns and exaggerated silhouettes paired with Hilfiger’s classic varsity jacket and 5-pocket jeans give a perfect twist to the capsule of 40 succinct looks. The release also includes a kids’ line, offering six miniature versions of the main looks.
“I’ve always been inspired by working with creatives who push boundaries, and Richard is no exception,” said Hilfiger. “We’ve brought together our two distinct aesthetics to create a rebellious take on modern Prep. It’s unexpected and optimistic, and reflects the playful spirit at the heart of both our brands.”
“Tommy and I share the same obsession for prints and textiles, so it was a natural joy to balance and combine our visions for this collaboration,” said Quinn. “It was inspiring to dive into Tommy’s archives and find the iconic pieces that became the canvases for our co-creation. We pushed ourselves to be dramatic and vibrant with every detail — in the pursuit of progress — and the final pieces do not disappoint.”
The capsule is documented in a campaign photographed by Adrienne Raquel that celebrates the collection’s launch, and will also feature a conceptual film and a series of eclectic activations.
