Richard Quinn and Tommy Hilfiger have just released an unexpected Fall/Winter 2022 collaboration, that merges the best of British and American pop culture.
Industry giant Hilfiger has opened his design archive to the fast-growing Quinn to develop a 40-piece collection that concentrates on strong graphics, western nostalgia, and proportional forms, creating a limited-edition capsule collection. Quinn’s unique pop-art, pattern-print flower design themes have earned him international acclaim, including the first-ever British Design Prize from Queen Elizabeth II in 2018. Quinn’s “daisy motif” appears on large navy-and-white quilted coats, blouses, and slacks, blended with a new “TH Monogram.”
Plush velour bodysuits in deep crimson with an iconic English rose design pattern are also part of the collection. The capsule’s campus-inspired separates, varsity jackets, and leather moto-style pieces have been mashed with a round of metal spikes – emblematic of London’s 1960’s punk vibe. The duo’s collection emblem, an encircling “TH” font with a “R” flower design, also appears on parts of the capsule’s outerwear, headgear, and accessories.
According to Quinn, he and Tommy both have a passion with prints and textiles, so it was a natural thrill to balance and mix their own perspectives for this collaboration. Exploring Tommy’s archives in search of the classic works that served as the canvases for our collaborative project inspired him.
The limited-edition capsule collection from Tommy Hilfiger and Richard Quinn debuted on the Hilfiger website as well as at a few international Hilfiger shops retailers (September 1). It will also feature a conceptual film and upcoming collection activations.
