The pair’s new spring collection
Reigning F1 champ Lewis Hamilton has just over a month before the start of the new season. He’s getting ready, nice and relaxed, quietly confident, and taking the time to launch his new clothing collection for Tommy Hilfiger.
The spring TommyXLewis range is said to build on the ongoing partnership’s strong sustainability focus and ‘Style for All’ philosophy – erasing boundaries in gender, age, ethnicity and body type. This is the fourth collection that the pair have worked on together, fusing a strong menswear heritage with Hamilton’s streetwear style.
Items in the new collection nod to classic archive pieces. Unexpected detailing, such as reversibility, adds function to classic outerwear silhouettes, and new fits are seen on hoodies and combat trousers. Military blues and greens blend with neutral tones and neon pops, infusing the classic tracksuit, bomber jacket and field jacket with a modern edge.
This collection is also said to be more environmentally-conscious than ever, with over 75 per cent of the items featuring sustainable elements, including 100 per cent organic cotton. Sorona, made from a plant-based fibre, was used as an alternative to down, and the collection utilises lower impact washes and recycled textiles on styles including denim jeans and shorts, woven tops and the bleached trucker jacket.
While most of the collection is launched later this month, two particular items have been released early online – the utilitarian TommyXLewis backpack and a flag crew neck sweater are available now.
Find the collection in Tommy Hilfiger outlets, department stores and online. The items will also be available via a gender-neutreal page on the brand website.
