Fusing influences from both brands’ DNA, the gender-inclusive ‘Tommy Jeans X Martine Rose’ collection brings an ironic streetwear edge to prep classics
Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], is excited to announce its collaboration with British designer Martine Rose and launch the Fall 2022 Tommy Jeans X Martine Rose capsule collection. Born from a mutual affinity for sportswear, the capsule is made up of modern wardrobe essentials that fuse streetwear style with signature prep details.
Putting a new spin on both brands’ aesthetics, the 35-piece gender-inclusive collection is inspired by archival Tommy Hilfiger icons from the 90s and updated through Martine Rose’s lens. A powerful play of color and graphics on exaggerated proportions are seen throughout the collection, bringing a streetwear vibe with a touch of tongue-in-cheek irony. Key items include the varsity jacket, hoodie, puffer, and robe-coat, and are remixed with pop details, over-dye finishes, and Martine’s signature patterns.
“Collaborating with Martine has been inspiring and pushed me creatively,” says Tommy Hilfiger. “I love it when a designer can come in and put their touch on our archival pieces. The collection is elevated and unique, and highlights how out-of-the-box and experimental Martine’s work is.“
“I really enjoyed being able to explore American subculture and create a campaign that not only celebrates but rightly spotlights marginalized communities,” says Martine Rose. “Tommy Hilfiger has always been a brand that I’ve drawn inspiration from, so this partnership was such a natural and organic marriage.“
Shot in the suburbs of Miami, Florida by renowned photographer Buck Ellison, the campaign features diverse couples in classic domestic settings, aiming to redefine traditional 90’s Americana. Just as Martine’s chaps and jockstraps lighten and radicalize hero products, the culturally rich and powerful campaign provides a cheeky edge while representing the current, beautifully diverse spirit of modern America.
Martine Rose founded her eponymous menswear label in London in 2007 and has since grown into an internationally acclaimed brand while retaining her underground cult credentials. Her unique use of proportions, silhouettes, and textures, as well as fluent referencing of subcultural contexts, continue to define her work and are highlighted across this capsule collection.
The collection is now available at select Tommy Jeans stores and tommy.com.
