Drapers Top 100 2016 – 65. Tommy Hilfiger, designer

New entry

Tommy Hilfiger

Tommy Hilfiger

Even after 45 years in the business, USdesigner Tommy Hilfiger shows little sign of slowing down, and his namesake brand goes from strength to strength – reporting $8.58bn (£6.81bn) in revenues for 2015, making up 42% of parent company PVH’s total revenues.

In 2016, Hilfiger was one of the first global brands to kick off the “see now, buy now” phenomenon of straight-to-consumer collections with his New York Fashion Week show in September. He also stole the headlines with the launch of his Tommy x Gigi capsule collection, created in collaboration with social media It Girl and model of the moment Gigi Hadid. These were examples of Hilfiger tapping into the zeitgeist in the on-trend way he does best – not only securing one of the biggest celebrity names of the year but continuing to innovate and evolve.

Among all that, he found time to write a memoir, American Dreamer, which launched in November.
