A brand synonymous with traditional American values, Tommy Hilfiger has been making waves this side of the pond for years. Selling a range of fabulous products, the brand has become well-known for their jewellery and watches, all of which have that typical US feel you have come to expect.
In this guide, we will be going through the history of Tommy Hilfiger, as well as looking through the incredible collection of watches and jewellery available to buy online at H.Samuel, all from the comfort of your home.
Who is Tommy Hilfiger?
The brand’s founder, Tommy Hilfiger is still involved in the business today, and started his career in fashion in the late 60s. He co-founded a record and clothing store in upstate New York City, using just $150 he had managed to save while working at a petrol (or gas if you are in the US) station.
The store, called People’s Place, grew over the next few years into a chain of ten shops which were overseen by Hilfiger – sadly the chain filed for bankruptcy in 1977.
Tommy Hilfiger history
Founded in 1985, Tommy Hilfiger is an American brand, primarily known for their clothing and footwear but now renowned for their chunky jewellery and watches. They also sell a range of homewares and accessories.
After his first venture, Hilfiger met with an Indian textile entrepreneur who was hoping to break into the US by launching a range of upmarket men’s clothes. With investment from the textile magnate, Hilfiger launched his first line of clothing in 1985 and the Tommy Hilfiger brand was born.
This series of products took classic American men’s clothes and gave them a modern twist, with chinos and shirts being key halo products in the collection. The popularity of the collection was almost instantaneous and with the backing of his investor, he managed to secure a billboard in Times Square.
Tommy Hilfiger history: 90s to the present day
It wasn’t until 1996 that the Tommy Hilfiger brand started selling women’s clothing, with a store in Beverley Hills opening soon after. Subsequently, their London shop opened in 1998, coinciding with the launch of a brand-new bed and bath collection.
As was the trend in the early 90s, the structured look to the brand’s menswear was switched out in favour of a more relaxed fit – this also brought the brand more fame with hip-hop artists, increasing its advertising reach.
Following years of success, the brand decided to license its name and logo to create a line of jewellery and watches, which the rest of our guide looks through.
