When the British invasion reached American shores in the early 1960s, it arrived with a roar. The Beatles climbed the American music charts and infiltrated pop culture at every level, which was closely followed by the arrival of other Brit bands like The Kinks, The Rolling Stones, Donovan, The Animals, and The Yardbirds. What’s ironic is that most of them were borrowing blues scales and sounds originally birthed by Black Americans in the South. Over the years, a tenuous rivalry has developed as one country is influenced by the other. However, with the new fashion collaboration between the iconic American designer Tommy Hilfiger and the beloved British designer Richard Quinn, two viewpoints are seen in sublime cooperation. 

Tommy Hilfiger first arrived on the fashion scene in the 1970s and has been a mainstay ever since, while Richard Quinn – with his elaborately upholstered printed looks – first wowed audiences at London Fashion Week in February of 2018. This inaugural collection was overseen by Queen Elizabeth II, who sat front row and whose presence helped launched Quinn’s name into the stratosphere.

Tommy Hilfiger has collaborated in the past with the likes of Indiya Moore, Zendaya, and Gigi Hadid, but this one feels considerably different from his past efforts. Mixing Quinn’s visually mind-bending patterns and outsized silhouettes with Hilfiger’s classic take on Americana, the overall effect is dizzying and instantly desirable. Exploring a multitude of cultural archetypes like the cheerleader, the punk, and the jock, the collection riffs on the best of each and combines it all into a gender-inclusive assembly of wit and whimsy. 

“I’ve always been inspired by working with creatives who push boundaries, and Richard is no exception,” Hilfiger shared in a press statement. “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.”

We loved the puffer jackets that feature Quinn’s signature daisy design, with the pattern repeated in different colors on both the outside and inside of the jacket. It has insane street style appeal; the very definition of a statement piece. Embroidered denim boilersuits, chunky patterned boots, pleated floral minis, and tailored Tartan jackets can be found in the collection, but don’t miss out on the pièce de résistance (we predict this one will sell out fast): a fully spiked and grommeted leather jacket that would have sent Sid Vicious’s jaw to the floor in envy.

The electrifying Tommy Hilfiger x Richard Quinn collection is on sale online at Tommy.com and at the Tommy Hilfiger store at Dubai Mall.
