LONDON, 2016-Oct-14 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tommy Hilfiger announces that internationally renowned tennis star and Tommy Hilfiger global brand ambassador, Rafael Nadal, will appear in the Tommy Hilfiger Tailored campaign for Fall 2016. The campaign shows Nadal wearing Tommy Hilfiger Tailored THFLEX for three different occasions, demonstrating the designs’ versatility, comfort and movability. The Tommy Hilfiger Tailored and THFLEX Rafael Nadal Edition collections are available at Tommy Hilfiger stores globally, through select wholesale partners, and online at tommy.com.

“Our ongoing global ambassadorship with Rafael Nadal continues to resonate with our consumers worldwide, driving a strong commercial impact globally across our men’s categories,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Nadal’s campaigns speak to and engage our next generation of Tommy fans – he’s confident, cool, and doesn’t take style too seriously. We’re excited to introduce the third season of this collaboration.”

The campaign was shot in Palm Springs, California, by photographer Mikael Jansson, and styled by Sean Spellman. Inspired by Nadal’s active lifestyle, it portrays three universal moments: “Down Time,” “On The Road,” and “Strictly Business.” For each occasion, Nadal wears a different THFLEX Rafael Nadal Edition suit that has been expertly crafted using high-performance Italian-made fabrics. Made for modern movement, the selection of single and double-breasted suits is designed to meet the active demands of today’s lifestyle with a compact handfeel and improved wrinkle-resistance. The result creates an unprecedented level of stretch and guaranteed comfort, celebrating tailored sophistication and innovation in iconic menswear classics.

“Tommy designs are cool, sophisticated and easy to wear, and I’m excited to continue my partnership with the brand in Fall 2016,” said Nadal. “Whether I’m traveling to a tennis tournament, at a red carpet gala or having a casual dinner with friends, I know there’s always a perfect Tommy Hilfiger design for any occasion, from day to night.”

In addition to Tommy Hilfiger Tailored, Nadal continues his ongoing ambassadorship for Tommy Hilfiger underwear and fragrances. The brand’s partnership with the tennis star began in Fall 2015 with impactful campaigns and a one-of-a-kind pop-up tennis event in the heart of New York City. The collaboration continued in Spring 2016 with the launch of the innovative THFLEX Rafael Nadal Edition capsule.

Born in 1986 in Manacor, Spain, Nadal has ranked amongst the world’s top five tennis players since 2003. Widely regarded as one of the greatest professional tennis players in history, at the age of 24 he became the youngest athlete to complete the “Career Grand Slam” and is the second male player in the world to have completed the “Career Golden Slam” after winning the French, Australian and U.S. Opens, Wimbledon, and a 2008 Olympic gold medal. Nadal currently holds a record for his nine French Open victories – the most won by a single player – including five consecutive title wins.

AMSTERDAM, 2016-Feb-05 — /EPR Retail News/ — What is an icon? This season Tommy Hilfiger explores the concept as he presents Hilfiger Edition, a carefully considered and thoughtfully reimagined collection of indispensable menswear classics. We look to our own 30-year history and Tommy’s most signaturardrobe. Through his well-honed lens, familiar heritage styles feel necessary, youthful and ready for right now.

There are covetable coats from the Crombie to the puffer and thickly cabled fisherman sweaters. Suiting and pajamas are luxurious in a glen plaid or graphic chalk stripes, and the rugby is a playful patchwork. Trousers are cut slouchy and denim is selvedge. Accessories and footwear are the ultimate essentials. All offer the rich detailing that is signature to our brand DNA.

At its foundation, colors are traditional, fabrications are both time-honored and technical, while silhouettes have a genuine sense of ease that is so in keeping with today’s versatile needs. “We looked at each garment from every angle,” noted Tommy, “giving a sense of newness without ever losing sight of what made them special in the first place.”

Hilfiger Edition is a collection of all-American style essentials curated from the extensive world of Tommy Hilfiger men’s. Hilfiger Edition celebrates the brand’s heritage pieces and iconic style staples in a relevant, luxurious way with new proportions and updated silhouettes. A fresh perspective on dressing in the modern age, these fundamentals are the ultimate building blocks of a contemporary wardrobe.

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.

The Fall ’16 Hilfiger Collection and Tommy Hilfiger sportswear collections, including Hadid’s capsule and fragrance, will be available at Tommy Hilfiger stores globally, through select wholesale partners and online at tommy.com. Friends and followers of the brand are invited to join the conversation on social media using #TOMMYXGIGI and the handles @TommyHilfiger and @GigiHadid.

PVH Corp: Tommy Hilfiger to introduce virtual reality shopping experience at select stores worldwide

Hosted in select ‘Tommy Hilfiger’ stores and wholesale partners globally, consumers can watch the Fall 2015 ‘Hilfiger Collection’ runway show from a front-row seat in 360 degree 3D virtual reality – and then immediately shop the collection.

AMSTERDAM, 2015-10-21 — /EPR Retail News/ — Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp. [NYSE:PVH], is pleased to announce that Tommy Hilfigerwill introduce a virtual reality shopping experience at select stores and wholesale partners worldwide, where consumers will be invited to watch the Fall 2015 Hilfiger Collection runway show in groundbreaking three-dimensional, 360 degree virtual reality. The technology will launch on October 20, 2015, at theTommy Hilfiger store on 5th Avenue in New York City, followed by additional locations in London, Paris, Milan, Amsterdam, Dusseldorf, Florence, Zurich, and Moscow.

Using a Samsung GearVR device, shoppers will have an immersive virtual experience that creates the impression of sitting live in the front row at Manhattan’s Park Avenue Armory at showtime on February 16, 2015, when the Fall 2015 Hilfiger Collection was originally presented. The VR experience gives users a perfect view of the runway and provides an exclusive sneak peek backstage, which is typically inaccessible for individuals not involved in the show production. The virtual reality installation lives in store in a dedicated area that reflects the American football theme of the Fall 2015 show, alongside theHilfiger Collection designs, which consumers can shop immediately.

“Through virtual reality, we’re now able to bring our one-of-a-kind fashion show to the retail setting,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “From the incredible set and music to exclusive backstage moments, consumers will be able to watch the clothes move and see the collection in the original show environment – it’s a compelling and interesting elevation of the traditional shopping experience.”

“We are driven by a vision to exceed consumer expectations, inspire them, and offer retail experiences they never thought possible,” said Daniel Grieder, CEO of Tommy Hilfiger. “Through cutting-edge virtual reality technology, we can invite shoppers to experience the Hilfiger Collection fashion show from a front row seat. We’re using virtual reality to open the doors to a unique part of our world, directly connecting the consumers in our retail space with one of our largest brand events each season.”

The introduction of virtual reality in stores reflects Tommy Hilfiger’s mission to elevate the shopping experience through digital innovation; these technological integrations in the retail space are evolving traditional brick-and-mortar set-ups and increasing opportunities for social engagement. The concept has been created in collaboration with WeMakeVR, developers of 360 degree 3D virtual reality experiences. The show was captured with the WeMakeVR-Falcon, a proprietary camera.

“Our special virtual reality cameras, combined with Tommy Hilfiger’s creative vision of the Fall ’15 Hilfiger Collection fashion show, resulted in an experience that goes beyond that of VIP guests,” said Avinash Changa, Founder and CEO of WeMakeVR. “Users get an incredible peek behind the scenes; they stand next to models right before they walk out onto the runway, and they feel the excitement of being backstage after the show.”

The Hilfiger Collection virtual reality experience will be available at Tommy Hilfiger stores in London (Brompton Road and Regent Street); Amsterdam (P.C. Hooftstraat); Dusseldorf (Schadowstrasse); Milan (Piazza Guglielmo Oberdan); Florence (Piazza degli Antinori); Zurich (Bahnhofstrasse); Paris (Boulevard des Capucines and Champs-Elysees); and Moscow (Kuznetsky Most). The concept is also launching at wholesale with Selfridges, London’s iconic department store.
