- Tommy Hilfiger
The American designer Tommy Hilfiger began in the ’80s, initially only for men. The brands signature use of classic red, white and blue recreated old styles and trends worn by the masses, and it brought the retro style back into the limelight. It has been worn by many music industry artists which promoted the label into the spotlight. Today the Tommy Label is keen to create collections that are made using 100% sustainable materials and to focus on reducing packaging and recycling materials will help keep the brand and the planet prospering into the future.
The Gant brand was born in 1949 in New Haven Connecticut as a family run business. Initially making shirts, Gant was innovative in the introduction of the locker Loop, the box pleat, the back collar button and the button tab. These details are still unanimous today with the Gant shirt. Gant became an American Iconic label transforming the ordinary white shirt into colour and stripes, the birth of the Oxford shirt. Gant was known as a sportswear label and in the early 70’s they produced their first American sportswear collection.
