First Look: Gigi Hadid X Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2016 Capsule Collection
Last year, donbleek.com reported that social and runway model Gigi Hadid was named Tommy Hilfiger’s global brand ambassador, beginning fall 2016. The role allows Hadid to collaborate with Hilfiger on a full capsule collection that will include sportswear, footwear, accessories and a new fragrance, in addition to starring in ad campaigns (see it here).
Today, we have a first look at the Gigi Hadid X Tommy Hilfiger Fall/Winter 2016 Capsule Collection.
The range, which features clothes and accessories, is set to launch the same day as the Tommy Hilfiger show at New York Fashion Week in September.
“I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate. His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with,” Hadid said in a statement when the collaboration was first announced.
“I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style. I think our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything: there are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear and styles that are tomboy but girly. Everyone’s is going to love a different part of it,” she added.
“I’ve known Gigi and her family for years, and it has been amazing to watch her grow into one of the world’s top models and most-followed fashion influencers. Gigi has walked in our runway shows and now we are thrilled to continue our collaboration with her as the new face of Tommy Hilfiger womenswear and fragrance. She is truly the definition of today’s Tommy Girl — her magnetic personality is bright and always optimistic, and her style is confident, effortless and cool,” Hilfiger said.
