SPECIAL PROJECTS: TOMMY HILFIGER X RICHARD QUINN AT ANTONIA MILANO
Our string of exclusive special projects continues full steam ahead, now unveiling a lively installation dedicated to the Tommy Hilfiger x Richard Quinn limited-edition capsule that brings a jolt of color and bold patterns across the interiors and windows.
An invite-only cocktail party will be held tonight (Sept. 23), energized with a live performance by Italian songwriter/rapper Irama and cool mixes by DJ Ilaria GR.
For the collection, Quinn, who received the inaugural Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design in 2018, interprets Hilfiger’s codes with his iconoclastic vision in a gender-inclusive celebration of individual style.
Inspired by a panoply of cultural archetypes, including punk, explorer, cheerleader, and jock, the British designer’s signature use of bold patterns and exaggerated silhouettes bonds with Hilfiger’s iconic take on American classics, from the varsity jacket to the 5-pocket jean, from chinos to leather jackets.
The newly launched “TH Monogram,” which reflects the spirit of innovation at the heart of the storied U.S brand, is remixed with Quinn’s signature daisy design and emblazoned onto puffer jackets, pea coats, sporty backpacks and hold-alls.
“I’ve always been inspired by working with creatives who push boundaries, and Richard is no exception,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “We’ve brought together our two distinct aesthetics to create a rebellious take on modern Prep. It’s unexpected and optimistic, and reflects the playful spirit at the heart of both our brands.”
“Tommy and I share the same obsession for prints and textiles, so it was a natural joy to balance and combine our visions for this collaboration,” said Richard Quinn. “It was inspiring to dive into Tommy’s archives and find the iconic pieces that became the canvases for our co-creation. We pushed ourselves to be dramatic and vibrant with every detail — in the pursuit of progress — and the final pieces do not disappoint.”
