American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and British Formula One racing driver Lewis Hamilton have released their second collection together – the Spring 2019 TommyxLewis capsule.
This is the second collection the five-time Formula One World Champion and the global men’s brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger has designed. Their first collaboration was back in the Fall of 2018.
This latest collection features streetwear apparel, footwear, accessories, underwear, swimwear and socks. A consistent theme throughout is an array of bold, bright colours, such as pink and purple, alongside the staple Hilfiger colours of red, white and blue.
“For Spring 2019, Lewis and I were inspired by the edgy street-style of Los Angeles, fusing West Coast style with the classic American cool DNA of our brand,” said Hilfiger.
“Collaborating with Tommy continues to be an inspiring journey of discovery, celebrating self-expression and individuality,” said Hamilton. “It has been incredible to see our creativity come to life through every piece of the collection, fusing my personal style with the American heritage of the brand.”
Lewis spoke out on the launch of his second collection, saying: “It’s been an incredible journey – the first collection went amazingly well and I’m so appreciative of how you all responded to it and the support you gave it. The second collection is now out – it’s a lot more different, a little bit more vibrant. I got the team to get it up to 40 per cent in eco-friendly materials and I’m continuing to push that process.”
“You have to design it and work on the process like a year in advance. It’s been a long, long journey and I’m really excited to share it with you all. I hope that those of you who do get it will be able to wear it proud and it makes you feel good and I hope you enjoy the show.”
The Tommy x Lewis Hamilton collection is available online and in select stores now.
