As a part of the new vision for ‘Tommy Hilfiger’ women’s, supermodel and social media star Gigi Hadid will launch her first ever capsule collection – including apparel, footwear, accessories – and fragrance in collaboration with the designer.

AMSTERDAM, 2015-12-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE: PVH], announces that internationally renowned supermodel Gigi Hadid will appear as the brand ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger women’s beginning Fall 2016, building on the new vision and strategic expansion of the brand’s global women’s business. As part of her exclusive ambassadorship, Hadid has partnered with Tommy Hilfiger to launch her first capsule collection, created in collaboration with the iconic American designer. Launching in Fall 2016, the capsule will feature women’s sportswear, footwear and accessories, including watches and sunglasses, as well as a new fragrance, which celebrate Hadid’s unique take on modern style, fused with Hilfiger’s signature “classic American cool” heritage.

“I’ve known Gigi and her family for years, and it has been amazing to watch her grow into one of the world’s top models and most-followed fashion influencers,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Gigi has walked in our runway shows and now we are thrilled to continue our collaboration with her as the new face of Tommy Hilfiger womenswear and fragrance. She is truly the definition of today’s ‘Tommy Girl’ – her magnetic personality is bright and always optimistic, and her style is confident, effortless and cool.”

Hadid’s ambassadorship reflects the company’s strategic commitment to expanding its women’s businesses globally; while already a significant contributor to global revenues, there is a strong potential for additional growth across all women’s categories. The expansion strategy encompasses design direction, store design, merchandising, presentation and communication to present a fresh new vision for Tommy Hilfiger womenswear, reinforcing the brand’s credentials as the world’s leading accessible designer brand that offers stylish classics with a playful fashion edge.

Dubbed a “social supermodel,” Hadid has been credited with reshaping the world of modeling in the 21st century, and reinventing the role of the supermodel in millennial culture. Through the incredible reach of her social media channels, she connects with fans around the world – over 10 million on Instagram alone – and offers them a unique, behind-the-scenes glimpse into her lifestyle as a trend-setting style icon. She has appeared on the covers of Vogue, W, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, TeenVogue, Numéro, Schön!, and CR Fashion Book, amongst others, and has also appeared in music videos and television programs around the world.

“I never thought I would be asked to design a capsule collection, so it still feels like a dream that Tommy approached me to collaborate,” said Gigi Hadid. “His company is one that I genuinely love and have been a fan of for my entire life, and Tommy is the easiest, most fun person to work with. I have always looked up to his brand, campaigns and design style. I think our collection celebrates the iconic Tommy lifestyle and mixes a bit of everything: there are styles that are really hippie-chic, styles that are sporty streetwear, and styles that are tomboy but girly; everyone’s is going to love a different part of it.”

The collection and fragrance campaigns will be photographed in early 2016 in New York City, and will break globally in Fall 2016 with dedicated print, online and out-of-home media placements worldwide. Hadid’s campaign will run alongside the brand’s seasonal advertising and dedicated men’s tailored and underwear campaign with brand ambassador Rafael Nadal. To further support the global partnership, Hadid will attend exclusive launch events in key markets around the world, including appearing in the brand’s Hilfiger Collection fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

Tommy Hilfiger has a long history of working with inspiring pop culture icons, and Hadid joins an expanding list of influential women who have partnered with the brand. Past collaborators have included Beyoncé, Kate Hudson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Naomi Campbell,Naomi Watts and Alexa Chung, and in recent seasons, Suki and Immy Waterhouse, and Behati Prinsloo have put their own unique twist on what it means to be a “Tommy Girl” today. The brand has also garnered an impressive list of top models who have walked in its fashion shows including Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Lizzy Jagger,Georgia May Jagger, Bella Hadid, Binx Walton and Stella Maxwell, among others.

Sport and futurism themes at H&M Studio show for autumn/winter 2015 held at the Grand Palais in Paris

PARIS, 2015-3-6 — /EPR Retail News/ — Sport and futurism were the themes at last night’s H&M Studio show for autumn/winter 2015, held at the Grand Palais in Paris. Models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Edie Campbell wore pieces from H&M’s key seasonal collection, which also mixed together functional pieces and feminine layers. Solange Knowles, Audrey Tautou and Noomi Rapace were among the guests who sat front row at the H&M Studio show, held during Paris Fashion Week in a specially constructed lunar landscape inside the Grand Palais.

The set imagined a fashion moon landing, with a colony of space craft dotted around the catwalk. The show was opened by style icon and music producer Caroline de Maigret, who walked the runway like the first woman on the moon, before entering a space pod and starting her live DJ set that activated the show itself.

The show was attended by 600 international editors and guests, as well as a worldwide audience who watched the show live on hm.com, specially hosted by the French fashion journalist and presenter Alexandra Golovanoff.

“There’s such great energy about this H&M Studio collection. I love the sporty and futuristic pieces, which are perfect to mix and match with functional outerwear and the tomboy glamour of lurex and sequins,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.

Zip-up jackets and coats and slender pants set the sporty mood on the H&M Studio catwalk for autumn/winter 2015, with futuristic shimmer from lurex knits and dresses, along with functional pieces like hooded anoraks and zip-fronted jumpsuits.

H&M Studio is H&M’s limited-edition collection of key seasonal pieces, with its own dedicated design team. The autumn/winter 2015 collection will be available in 200 stores, as well as online, from September 10.

“That was my favourite H&M Studio collection so far. I loved everything about the H&M Studio show. There’s a green turtleneck and pants I want to get my hands on right now,” said Solange Knowles

“H&M is such a great brand. Every cool girl, every model, everybody wears H&M,” said Karolina Kurkova
