For fall’s most exciting sartorial fusion of fashion legacy and future, Tommy Hilfiger
merges his Manhattanite sophistication with rising designer, Romeo Hunte’s
Brooklyn edge for Tommy X Romeo—the latest pioneering project of Hilfiger’s
People’s Place Program. In its mission of bringing diversity to fashion, the American heritage brand and style arbiter reimagines the most iconic pieces of Tommy’s 36-year history. “Together, we’ve really focused on passing the mic to the next generation of BIPOC creatives and thought leaders to increase representation and amplify their talent globally,” says Hilfiger.
Drawing on the esteemed Tommy Hilfiger archives, the capsule brings the Big Apple alive through innovative design. Hunte, a longtime mentee of Hilfiger, plays with proportions of preppy button-downs and classic trench coats, remixing the iconic Hilfiger Ithaca stripe in the colors of the New York City metro. The result is a brand-new vision for American style.
