LOS ANGELES — Tommy Hilfiger is teaming up with Los Angeles shoe designer George Esquivel to launch a limited-edition collection for men and women set to debut Aug. 23 on tommy.com and in select stores on Sept. 1.
The 900-pair run of brogue and loafer styles is handmade in California with premium, locally sourced leathers and materials. The designs combine Hilfiger’s trademark preppy aesthetic with Esquivel’s signature quirky details, including bright outsoles, prominent stitching and antiqued leather washing. The shoes feature vintage details such as hand-punched perforations, hand-appliquéd logos and the Tommy Hilfiger + Esquivel logo emblazoned into the leather with a branding iron. In a subtle nod to Hilfiger style, the medallion on the toe of the wing tip is in the shape of an argyle print. Each pair comes with shoe bags and red, white, blue and brown laces in a numbered box.
