US – The new range from Tommy Hilfiger, which was launched on tommy.com, offers 37 men’s and 34 women’s styles based on the brand’s sportswear collections. The garments have been designed with seams and openings that help with dressing and undressing. For trousers, jeans and chinos, for example, magnetic flies have been used, and hems and leg openings have been amended to accommodate prosthetics.
‘Inclusivity and the democratisation of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA,’ said Tommy Hilfiger in a statement. ‘These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering adults with different abilities to express themselves through fashion.’ Designers such as Tommy Hilfiger and Inga Wellbeing are recognising the importance of empowering all consumers through apparel.
