There is something about collaborations. It marries the skills, thoughts and talents of the participating parties to create truly unique products that stand high above the rest. When the collaboration is between one of the best drivers in the history of Formula One, and one of the biggest names in the world of fashion and style, you can be sure of an epic result like no other.
For their fifth collaboration, Lewis Hamilton and Tommy Hilfiger have released a Fall 2020 collection that, once again, can be worn by any gender. It pioneers more gender-neutral pieces on the premise that great style erases all boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. It also incorporates 100% recycled denim, organic cotton and post-consumer recycled materials into almost 80% of the collection, with every produced garment produced following the brand’s overarching environmental and social sustainability mission to Waste Nothing and Welcome All.
Tommy describes the outerwear as striking “the perfect modernist balance by contrasting brutalist, utilitarian silhouettes with soft, plush materials like faux suede and recycled down in puffer parkas.” Complementing “a monochromatic edge to pieces with neutral tonalities,” the collection quickly switches gears towards vibrant colourways of bright purples and yellows for that “eye-catching” pop of colour.
The Fall 2020 TommyXLewis collection champions the causes most important to the Tommy Hilfiger brand. Looking to “create the strongest realisation of the TommyXLewis values” for the new collection, the company embraced new methods for embodying the sustainability and ‘Style for All’ focus, while staying true to the Tommy Hilfiger brand’s classic American cool DNA. The result is fresh, bold, and something the brand is really excited to share with fans around the world.
Lewis Hamilton has been “evolving as a designer and collaborator through the TommyXLewis collections” labelling each one “an incredible journey”. “Over the last five seasons, I have loved working with Tommy to push boundaries, take creative risks and capture my personal sense of style in our designs. Our new Fall 2020 collection embodies everything we stand for – from authentic self-expression to inclusivity and sustainability – while building on the TommyXLewis aesthetic we have cemented. We could not be prouder of what we have created together.”
