The capsule intermixes Quinn’s signature use of bold pattern and exaggerated silhouettes with Hilfiger’s iconic take on American classics, from the varsity jacket to the 5-pocket jean, the chino to the leather jacket. Across a total of 40 pieces, the capsule is inspired by a panoply of cultural archetypes, including punk, explorer, cheerleader and jock, and serves as a resounding, gender inclusive celebration of individual style.
The newly launched “TH Monogram,” which reflects the spirit of innovation at the heart of the TOMMY HILFIGER brand, is remixed with Quinn’s signature daisy design and emblazoned onto puffer jackets, pea coats, athletic backpacks and hold-alls.
A varsity jacket is decorated with unique motifs that combine Quinn’s daisy with emblems of Collegiate and Americana style. An iconic English rose pattern appears on formal trousers, billowing outerwear and classic tailoring in Scottish Tartan.
Throughout, experimental mismatching and striking shifts in the scale of repeated motifs create impact and intrigue. Textiles are luxurious – including printed velours and high-density twills, while accessories such as patterned boots and silk scarves are distinctive statement offerings.
The Tommy Hilfiger X Richard Quinn kid’s line offers six miniature versions of the main collection. Functional outerwear takes center stage with a reversible monogram puffer and premium quality varsity jacket. Playful prints, fabrications and textures characterize elevated knits, delavé denims and stretch velour.
“I’ve always been inspired by working with creatives who push boundaries, and Richard is no exception”, said Tommy 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 Richard 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 with a conceptual film and a series of eclectic activations.
Tommy Hilfiger X Richard Quinn will launch online on tommy.com and in select TOMMY HILFIGER stores worldwide.
