American brand Tommy Hilfiger has launched the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule co-designed by Tommy Hilfiger and his mentee, Romeo Hunte. The collection uses Hunte’s deconstruction techniques to reconstruct, remix and reimagine iconic pieces like the classic bonded trench coat remixed with sailing jacket colour-blocking or clashed with a leather biker jacket.
The TommyXRomeo capsule builds on the Tommy Hilfiger’s ambitious People’s Place Program, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond.
For the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule, Tommy Hilfiger opened the archives to Romeo, clashing classic Tommy Hilfiger design codes with Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques and with a focus on non-gender specific outerwear. The collection brings a modern and bold twist to the icons that the brand is best known for – the trench coat, the biker jacket, the Oxford shirt, the two brands said in a joint statement.
Edgy yet sophisticated, each piece combines Manhattan prep with Brooklyn street, and boasts exceptional materials and elevated craftsmanship, showcasing the passion for detail that both Romeo Hunte and Tommy Hilfiger share. A preppy button-down comes in unexpected, playful proportions, with the brand’s heritage Ithaca stripe reimagined in the colours of the New York City subway.
“As a young, upcoming designer, I was lucky to be guided by incredible leaders who made a huge impact on my career,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “I am passionate about passing that on, mentoring the next generation of design talent. I’ve been supportive of and worked with Romeo Hunte for over five years. He is one of those truly exceptional newcomers – someone you know is going to make an impact as soon as you see his work.”
“Tommy has been such a supportive mentor to me over the years,” said Romeo Hunte. “Reinvention is a fundamental part of my design DNA, so pushing the boundaries of the brand’s archives has been an incredibly creative and meaningful experience. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and hope to inspire the next generation of talent to dream big.”
The TommyXRomeo campaign further aligns with Tommy Hilfiger’s People’s Place Program, which creates opportunity for creative talent from underrepresented Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (BIPOC) communities and increases visibility to foster a diverse and inclusive community both in front of, and behind, the camera.
