This past weekend, Tommy Hilfiger announced via his personal instagram that a collaboration between the Tommy Hilfiger brand and Vetements will come out this fall. “I was very excited. What they’ve done is quite genius,” Hilfiger remarked in regard to Vetements x Tommy Hilfiger. “They have their own rule book. They do what they want and do it when and how they want.”

Hilfiger is known for currying trend, including featuring the hottest models of the moment (even collaborating with them, in the case of Gigi Hadid). Vetements has become known for their own collaborations, including in their Spring 2017 collection that featured collaborations with Comme des Garçons, Dr. Martens, Levi’s, Manolo Blahnik, Reebok and more.

The fall collection will be unisex, featuring shirts, beanies, socks, and hoodies. “The fact that a disruptive designer like Demna [Gvasalia] would want to do something with our brand is a tremendous compliment,” Hilfiger commented. The Vetements x Tommy Hilfiger collaboration will be available in February at Barneys New York, Harrods and Collette.
