NEW YORK — The Tommy Hilfiger Group, wholly owned by PVH Corp., has forged a deal with LF USA to license home decor, beginning in January in the U.S., Canada, South America and Mexico.
The home collections will be inspired by Hilfiger’s “classic American cool sensibility with a twist,” according to the company. Spring home lines will feature pieces reminiscent of summer days at the beach, while fall 2014 will be a collection of preppy, collegiate pieces.
Hilfiger’s spring ready-to-wear collection, which he showed earlier this month, were also inspired by beach living. Hilfiger, who has homes in Manhattan; Greenwich, Conn., and Mustique, has always had a passion for home decor. “I’ve always been inspired by iconic American homes, and my wife Dee and I enjoy finding great art and cool vintage pieces to create an eclectic vibe,” said Hilfiger. “I had a lot of fun combining those inspirations with my love of design to create the new Tommy Hilfiger home line.
“I could not imagine having a better partner than Li & Fung for this line, they are absolutely the best in the world,” added Hilfiger.
He said that every piece will reflect “the classic, America, cool spirit at the heart of the Tommy Hilfiger brand.” The designer has had a licensing agreement with Revman International for bedding and bath, which isn’t being renewed.
Hilfiger’s home collection will launch for spring with bedding, bath, tabletop decor and decorative accessories and will be followed by an expanded fall line that will include furniture and rugs. The Hilfiger home collection will be available in select Tommy Hilfiger stores; Macy’s; select department and specialty stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and on tommy.com in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and South America, beginning next spring.
“LF USA is a category leader in the home decor market,” said Anne Marino, president of licensing for Hilfiger, adding the new collection will enable Hilfiger “to develop a greater product range and distribution strategy for our home line.”
Dow Famulak, president of LF USA, said, “We are leveraging Tommy Hilfiger’s global recognition and continued momentum to create a truly iconic international home collection.”

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
