For his Fall/Winter 2020 Collection, Romeo Hunte turned to his idol Tommy Hilfiger for inspiration. The Brooklyn born designer debuted his latest collection using 12 vintage Tommy Hilfiger pieces.
The pieces were donated from Tommy’s personal archive and upcycling them into entirely new and fresh pieces.
“Tommy Hilfiger has produced some of the world’s most timeless pieces, that are still relevant up to date. For me, being able to integrate some of those capsule looks with my cut and sew methods, merging the narratives of both brands, means everything. Reconstructing pieces that are already assembled was a contribution to support sustainable fashion,” says designer Romeo Hunte.
