Tommy Hilfiger, which is owned by PVH Corp., will launch a line of adaptive apparel for adults. It will be sold on tommy.com starting Wednesday.The new line consists of 37 men’s and 34 women’s styles based upon pieces from the spring Tommy Hilfiger sportswear collection. Each piece is designed with the end consumer in mind and features adjusted seams and openings to allow ease of dressing for individuals and caregivers.Modifications include magnetic shoulders; front and back closures to help pull clothes over the head; Velcro brand closures, and magnetic flies for ease in wearing pants, jeans and chinos; adjusted leg openings and hems to accommodate leg braces and orthotics; magnetic zippers to enable individuals to zip and unzip with one hand, and pull-on pant loops inside of waist bands that fit around the wrist to pull on pants. The line is priced equally to the regular sportswear collection. Presently, the men's line is offered up to size XXL and women's to size 18.“Inclusivity and the democratization of fashion have always been at the core of my brand’s DNA,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “These collections continue to build on that vision, empowering differently abled adults to express themselves through fashion.”Hilfiger launched its first adaptive collection for children in the spring, marking the first time a global fashion brand featured apparel to accommodate the needs of the differently abled community. Its success promoted the development of an adult line.The plan calls for selling to Zappos and in the future, possibly some wholesale accounts.Last month, MagnaReady said it had partnered with LF Americas to help people with mobile issues. Expanded collections of men’s woven shirts, children’s school uniforms and other apparel integrating the MagnaReady closure system are expected to be introduced with LF Americas retail partners in 2018.

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.
