Sit Tight: This Tommy Hilfiger X Lewis Hamilton Collection Will Have Your Heart Racing
The TommyXLewis collection celebrates Lewis Hamilton’s flair for luxury street style and his sporty identity, while revisiting Tommy Hilfiger’s American roots. The result: a fresh and sporty twist that would take pride of place in any unisex wardrobe.
Marked with Lewis’ trademark lucky number 44 and his love for body art, TommyXLewis merges his influences with the brand’s heritage pieces and versatile shapes, ranging apparel, footwear, accessories, underwear and socks. “Lines are blurring and I really wanted to create a collection that would be styled in a way that works for everyone,” Lewis explained of this venture into fashion.
The apparels feature iconic Tommy Hilfiger flag alongside Lewis’ initials, and signature colur palette of red, white and blue. For Lewis, his love for urban-chic called for comfort yet statement wear.
With so much character and endless styling possibilities going into each piece, one could start by taking inspiration of Tommy and Lewis’ favourites. “I love how proportions get playful throughout the collection, with oversized tops and skinny fit jeans…. including the padded denim trucker jacket that adds a casual twist,” Tommy declared.
For the celebrity racer, it’s all about reworking his beliefs into wardrobe essentials. Besides a military-green parka, Lewis loves a white tracksuit: “The word ‘loyalty’ on the back of the top, which is inspired by my personal tattoo, and the velvet stripe taping on arm and leg seams add an unexpected, cool twist,” he weighed in.
