TOMMY ANSWERS THE QUESTION – WHAT IS AN ICON?
What is an icon? This season Tommy Hilfiger explores the concept as he presents Hilfiger Edition, a carefully considered and thoughtfully reimagined collection of indispensable menswear classics.
We look to our own 30-year history and Tommy’s most signature pieces to deliver the fundamental building blocks of a modern wardrobe. Through his well-honed lens, familiar heritage styles feel necessary, youthful and ready for right now.
There are covetable coats from the Crombie to the puffer and thickly cabled fisherman sweaters. Suiting and pajamas are luxurious in a glen plaid or graphic chalk stripes, and the rugby is a playful patchwork. Trousers are cut slouchy and denim is selvedge. Accessories and footwear are the ultimate essentials. All offer the rich detailing that is signature to our brand DNA.
At its foundation, colors are traditional, fabrications are both time-honored and technical, while silhouettes have a genuine sense of ease that is so in keeping with today’s versatile needs. “We looked at each garment from every angle,” noted Tommy, “giving a sense of newness without ever losing sight of what made them special in the first place.”
