The range – which will be available at Harrods, Barneys and Colette, includes unisex items such as oversized hoodies, short-sleeve T-shirts, beanies and socks in a colour palette of grey, navy, red and fuchsia. Prices will be similar to Vetements, with hoodies at £860, socks at £87 and caps at £219.
Hilfiger told WWD that Guram Dvasalia – one half of the Vetements duo – contacted him around six yo mine months ago. He describes the collection as “luxury streetwear”.
“We agreed to it because we think it’s such a cool brand and think it will be an incredible collaboration,” he said.
“The fact that a disruptive designer like Demna [Gvasalia] would want to do something with our brand is a tremendous compliment.”
Although the collaboration is just a one-off at this stage, hilfiger is not ruling out working with the brand again: “Who knows what might happen in the future?”
Vetements is known for adding its subversive tweet to high street brands, from Levi’s and Champion to Carhartt an Dr Martens.
